BS ISO 55000:2014 pdf free.Asset management一Overview, principles and terminology
Asset management requires accurate asset information, but an asset management system is more than a management information system. Asset management interacts with many functions of an organization. The assets themselves can also support more than one function and more than one functional unit within the organization. The asset management system provides a means for coordinating contributions from and interaction between these functional units within an organization.
The asset management plan can enable an organization to create a link, if needed, between its asset management system (such as described by ISO 55001, ISO 55002 and this International Standard) and a variety of specific, technical asset management requirements. These specific, technical requirements are given in standards both inside and outside the ISO environment, and at the international, regional or national standardization levels; such standards provide information on strategies and tactics, as well as specific design, construction, material or process requirements. The definitions given in 3.4 refer specifically to the asset management system described in this International Standard; some of these terms may be defined differently for a specific, technical standard.
The establishment of an asset management system is an important strategic decision for an organization. ISO 55001 specifies the requirements of an asset management system, but does not specify the design of the system. ISO 55002 provides guidance on the design and operation of an asset management system. An asset management system provides a structured approach for the development, coordination and control of activities undertaken on assets by the organization over different life cycle stages, and for  aligning these activities with its organizational objectives.
a) Creating an asset management system provides benefits in itself.
The process of implementing an asset management system can require significant time effort and expense; however, the organization does not need to wait until the entire system is fully operational to begin accruing benefits. The benefits, or quick wins, in areas such as risk reduction, opportunity identification or process improvement can be identified early in the implementation, and can be exploited to demonstrate returns and gain stronger stakeholder support.
一Asset management is data intensive and new tools and processes are often necessary to collect, assemble, manage, analyse and use asset data. The creation and use of these tools can stimulate and improve organizational knowledge and decision making.
一The process of creating an asset management system brings new perspectives to the organization and new ideas on value creation from the use of assets. These new perspectives can also stimulate improvements in other organizational functions, such as purchasing, finance, human resources and information technology.BS ISO 55000 pdf download.
