Asset Management Landscape

The Asset Management Landscape is a tool 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 for certification schemes and qualifications in asset management,
  • the structure (and potentially the criteria) for assessing an organization.

Panarama de la geston d'actifs

Le Panorama de la gestion d'actifs est une initiative du GFMAM axée sur son troisième objectif à long terme, à savoir, « faciliter l’échange et l’harmonisation des connaissances et des savoir-faire en matière de maintenance et de gestion d'actifs. » 

Les divers éléments couverts par la seconde édition du Panorama de la gestion d'actifs du GFMAM, sont : 

  • fournir un aperçu général de cette nouvelle discipline, « la gestion d'actifs » 
  • fournir une structure permettant de constituer un corpus de savoirs destiné aux systèmes de certification et de qualification en gestion d'actifs 
  • proposer un moyen de comparer et de confronter différents systèmes de certification et qualification 
  • fournir une structure (et peut-être les critères) permettant d’évaluer la maturité d’un organisme en termes de gestion d'actifs 
  • donner les informations sur les besoins de connaissances en gestion d'actifs pour les auditeurs (internes / externes) de l’ISO 55000 
  • comparer les produits et services émanant des différents membres du GFMAM en relation avec les 39 thèmes retenus, ci-après au § 6, pour décrire cette discipline.

Auditor Assessor Specification for an ISO 55001 Asset Management System Auditor/Assessor

This document recommends baseline requirements for the Asset Management knowledge and understanding that an ISO assessor or auditor should have.  GFMAM members will be recommending to asset owners that they apply55001  this specification for internal assessors and require any external auditors to provide demonstrable evidence of this knowledge and understanding.


Asset Management Maturity

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 Maintenance Framework

This document is intended to be used by Global Forum members and the Maintenance and Asset Management communities to provide: 

  • an overview of the discipline of maintenance management,
  • a structure for building a body of knowledge for certification schemes and qualifications in maintenance management,
  • a structure (and potentially the criteria) for assessing an organization’s maturity in maintenance management, 
  • a description of maintenance management knowledge requirements for assessors and auditors

The Value of Asset Management

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.


The Value of Asset Management - Template for Assessment of Opportunities

The purpose of this document is to provide a template for evaluation of new asset management opportunities with focus on the potential for realization of value to the organization.

The template for application is an integral part of GFMAM project ‘The Value of Asset Management to the Organization’. Information on background, project scope, definitions and methodology refers to this document.


The Value of Asset Management - Template for Case Studies

The purpose of this document is to provide a template for case studies to illustrate the actual realization of value for organizations who have accomplished asset management implementations.

The template for case studies is an integral part of GFMAM project ‘The Value of Asset Management to the Organization’. Information on background, project scope, definitions and methodology refers to this document.
