 Asset Management in a Digital World, Kuala Lumpur

About this event

The purpose of asset management is to monitor all assets, i.e. facilities, structures, interfaces, ICT and other material components down to the last screwdriver, along their entire life cycles. An Infrastructure Asset Management System controls the integrated and cross-disciplinary interplay of strategies, processes and IT systems involved in the management of critical infrastructures.

Organisations responsible for maintaining efficient road, rail, ports, airports and utilities infrastructure are facing unparalleled challenges to build, operate, maintain and replace ageing assets. They’re doing this at a time when the digital economy is developing tools and methods that can fundamentally transform the practice of asset management.

This presentation looks at how owners need to look beyond now and past the horizon and how digital information tools can assist in reducing lifecycle costs in caring for the asset.
