Asset Management Landscape

Asset Management Landscape Blue Cover

The Asset Management Landscape is a tool designed for the member societies as a tool for their own use to promote a common global approach to Asset Management.  It includes a number of conceptual models, a list of 39 Asset Management Subjects and Principles and a framework for describing best practices, maturity and standards.  Two important purposes for the GFMAM Asset Management Landscape are to provide:

  • the structure for building a body of knowledge and qualifications in asset management,
  • the structure (and potentially the criteria) for assessing an organization.

Asset Management Maturity

Asset Management Maturity cover with GFMAM logo

With the publication of the ISO 55000 series of standards, the Global Forum on Maintenance and Asset Management (GFMAM)recognised that the accelerating interest in Asset Managementwould benefit from more guidance on Asset Management maturity. This position statement defines the key principles of Asset Management maturity.

What is the value?

Alignment with ISO 55001 for many organisations will not realise the full value to stakeholders. There is a substantial and growing body of evidence that there are significant benefits to organisations that develop their maturity in Asset Management beyond compliance. The GFMAM has a separate project that is developing the evidence around the value delivered by organisations to their stakeholders through increased Asset Management maturity.

The purpose of the Maintenance Framework is to develop and promote a common understanding of the role and value of maintenance, and how it contributes to the delivery of business outcomes. Going into more detail than, and beyond the subject of Maintenance Delivery from the Asset Management Landscape, the Maintenance Framework provides information on:

  • The discipline of maintenance and its management, including its role in asset management at all stages of asset life;
  • Maintenance principles, subjects, and terminology; and
  • Relevant international standards.

The Maintenance Framework also establishes the foundation for competencies in maintenance and its management, and the ability to benchmark maintenance practices.

This second edition, which expands in detail and clarity in several areas, represents the Global Forum’s commitment to continuous improvement for its members and the global maintenance and asset management community.

The project is well under way with a major achievement being the development of a Value Model as a conceptual model of value creation from asset management. The Value Model and the definitions of concepts were thoroughly discussed, reviewed and improved by the project group, other members of GFMAM and of the member societies. The main content of the project document are finalized, but still open for further review for quality improvements.
