Definition Sheet

Strategic Asset Management is the application of Asset Management across the entire utility organization/business. This is a holistic approach to Asset Management. Strategic Asset Management starts with the utility corporate strategy and mission and continues in a unified and coordinated approach across all technical and non-technical areas of the utility. Strategic Asset Management aims to produce such value as improved utility asset performance, reduction of risk, reduction in costs, and creation of new opportunities

The main objective of the Strategic Asset Management Program (SAMP) is to bring the industry professionals together to identify, discuss and develop solutions to common issues in Strategic Asset Management by creating a networking opportunity for utilities concerned with asset management application, optimization and innovation.  It also serves as a forum to identify knowledge gaps and to provide guidance on future collaborative projects.
