Asset Management Landscape

Version 2 (English , French and  Chinese)


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.

Auditor Assessor Specification

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.

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.
