Facts about Asset Management

Asset management is a methodology designed for companies that are highly dependent on their assets, for example infrastructure companies like airports, energy companies, transport companies etc.

The ISO 55001 standard defines Asset Management as “the systematic and coordinated activities through which an organisation controls its assets, systems, results, risks and costs in an optimum and sustainable way through the entire lifecycle of the assets for the purpose of systematically realising the strategic objectives and plans of the enterprise.”
