Companies are expected to manage their physical and intangible assets meticulously and proactively throughout their lifecycle. By certifying your organisation’s ISO 55001 Asset Management System, you can reduce costs, maximize return on investment and optimize growth throughout the asset lifecycle.
ISO 55001 standard was first published in 2014. It aims to mitigate the risk to the assets while contributing to business continuity and improving asset management continuously. It’s crucial for organisations to manage their assets in a framework that is internationally approved and fits the purpose of each organisation.
ISO 55001 can be applied to all organisations independent of the size, and structure. Implementing ISO 55001 framework provides a better control of the assets.
History of Asset Management
With the rapid increase in population in the world, technological developments have increased in needs. Accordingly, while the assets owned are limited, the demand is increasing. This basic need has led to Asset Management and the development of methods and techniques to be applied to every sector. All these have accelerated the maturation process of Asset Management.
Modern Asset Management has been used in the Finance world for over 100 years. Since the 1980s, the Asset Management System has been implemented by institutions and organisations to generate maximum value from their physical assets.
Rapidly developing technology is complex structures and they need to be used efficiently in line with the needs. As a result of the emergence and implementation of modern Wealth Management in countries such as England, America, Australia, New Zealand and Canada, very important gains have been achieved. The assets owned are managed with minimum risk, maximum benefit and optimum cost balance.
As a result of all these developments, Asset Management is defined by ISO 55000 as “coordinated activities undertaken by an organisation to derive value from assets”. Although this definition is quite simple, it is normal to see differences in applications since each organisation has different dynamic structures.
Some of the benefits of Asset Management are as follows;
- Strategy & activity harmony is ensured,
- Optimum cost & benefit balance is established,
- Awareness rises to higher levels in corporate authority and responsibilities.
- Institutional consistency is ensured in change management,
