Life Management

Maximising the life and sustaining the value of physical assets in your organisation poses challenges to all stakeholders responsible for planning, deploying, using, and managing those assets across the enterprise.


There is a link to download a white paper at the bottom of this page that provides guidance to key stakeholders who seek to overcome these challenges and bring the benefits of Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) to their organisations.


Your organisation may be a public service or a not-for-profit organisation and the word ‘Enterprise’ may suggest commercial private sector businesses – it’s not!


It’s a actually useful guide for:


  • Any organisation that seeks to transition from basic asset management, typically during O&M on a limited set of assets, to EAM with a diverse set of assets serving a large number of enterprise-wide stakeholders.
  • Any organisation that currently implements some form of EAM, but seeks to improve the quality of its asset portfolio data and increase the benefits derived from its EAM system.

Senior leaders can learn to recognise typical operational indicators that prompt the need for EAM.


The guide helps you to understand how a lack of holistic information about the asset portfolio can inhibit and delay strategic business decisions, result in missed investment opportunities, increase capital and operational costs, and directly impact mission success.


The paper give insight on how to guide strategic planners as they work towards achieving two key milestones on the EAM path, namely developing the Strategic Asset Management Plan (SAMP) and the EAM Strategic Technology Plan.



As an asset manager and/or facilities manager the guide discusses the role you play and the inputs you can provide in the development of the SAMP, the EAM Strategic Technology Plan, and the organisation’s EAM system.




The guide also provides a useful insight as to how the workflow automation, computational automation, and outputs from the EAM system helps you gain control over inventory, better manage asset lifecycles, improve asset optimisation, and produce more efficient processes.





Most importantly, it acts as a guide on how to transition from managing a small portfolio of assets isolated in an individual facility, to managing a portfolio of diverse assets that serve the needs of stakeholders across your enterprise.


Department and project managers and their teams are typical users of assets.


While not actively involved in the development of the EAM system, they are important contributors to its success or failure.



The guide discusses their role in encouraging adoption of the EAM system by their teams, and the importance of reporting improvements or deficiencies resulting from the implementation of the EAM system.



This feedback is essential towards continually improving the EAM system to deliver the expected benefits and is also used as input to the next iteration of the SAMP.


Importantly, the guide provides all stakeholders with a way to evaluate if EAM is really working for their own organisations.


With the benefit of the knowledge gained from this document and with the use of examples, stakeholders will see how the EAM system mitigates or eliminates the adverse indicators that prompted the need for EAM in the first place.
