8:30 AM Workshop A: Strategies for Developing a Long- Term Strategic Asset Management Plan

Developing a strategic asset management plan is important to give long term direction for an asset. Often asset managers believe that a strategic asset management plan is a monthly or annual schedule but often fail to see the overall long term path for each asset. While developing a strategic asset management plan is a time consuming and expensive task, in the long term it can maximise space, decreases operational and maintenance costs and reduce energy consumption.

This Workshop will Benefit those who:
  • Are only planning up to a year in advance
  • Are finding their buildings have increasingly expensive maintenance costs
  • Want to increase the capacity of their university to meet the rising demand of student attendance without purchasing more real estate.

What the workshop will cover:
  • Establishing tools to create a strategic asset management plan
  • Identifying the link between the university objectives and the objectives of the strategic asset management plan
  • Understanding how to monitor current assets and the systems required to help ensure sufficient condition monitoring, for example, through condition monitoring
  • Learning of the long term reduction in costs through sufficiently managing each asset

9:50 AM Evaluating Assets in Order to Measure Significance to the Institution by Using the World’s Best Practise Model: PAS 55/ISO 55000

University facilities are no use if their only value lays in the potential of how they could serve the university rather than how they currently do. All university assets need to be measured on their current performance and identify how well they need to perform in terms of meeting strategic priorities.

This session will discuss:
  • How an asset management framework should be based on a world’s best practice model (PAS 55/ ISO 55000)
  • Improving service delivery outcomes through infrastructure
  • Deciding whether to sell or update ageing infrastructure that isn’t currently configured to support contemporary service delivery outcomes
