Asset management is a strategic and systematic process of operating, maintaining, and improving physical assets, with a focus on engineering and economic analysis based upon quality information, to identify a structured sequence of maintenance, preservation, repair, rehabilitation, and replacement actions that will achieve and sustain a desired state of good repair over the lifecycle of the assets at minimum practicable cost.
The Core Principles of Asset Management
• Policy-driven-Resource allocation decisions are based on awell-defined set of policy goals and objectives.
• Performance-based-Policy objectives are translated intosystem performance measures that are used for both day-to-day and strategicmanagement.
• Analysis of Options and Tradeoffs-Decisions on how toallocate funds within and across different types of investments (e.g.,preventive maintenance versus rehabilitation, pavements versus bridges) arebased on an analysis of how different allocations will impact achievement ofrelevant policy objectives.
• Decisions Based on Quality Information-The merits ofdifferent options with respect to an agency's policy goals are evaluated usingcredible and current data.
• Monitoring Provides Clear Accountability andFeedback-Performance results are monitored and reported for both impacts andeffectiveness.
