International Asset Management Standard, ISO 55000, released

It's official! The long awaited ISO 55000 Asset Management Standards are now published. You can purchase the standard on the ISO site:

The ISO Asset Management standards include:
  • ISO 55000 Overview
  • ISO 55001 Management System Requirements
  • ISO 55002 Management System Guidelines
These new standards establish the framework/definition for WHAT is good asset management. They do not define the methods for HOW to achieve good asset management. Bentely users have an advantage that our APM methodology answers the question of how to implement an asset management system, combining the elements of process, people, technology, methodology/plan. Watch for posting on the upcoming Bentley eSeminar on March 20 which will discuss this important new standard and how it can be used as a sustainable business strategy.
