Fundamentals of Infrastructure & Transportation Asset Management Part 1
- November 11–November 12
- 10:30 am–3:00 pm
The Fundamentals of Infrastructure & Transportation Asset Management Part 1 (FAM) course will cover the Infrastructure & Transportation Asset Management journey over the last 20 years and what we now see as the current and future trajectory of developing a sustainable and scalable asset management program, and provide students with enough information to develop an asset management program from scratch or allow them to build upon an existing program. The course will be taught by experts from consulting as well as academia, giving students both theory-based research and development outcomes, and use cases and best practices that are based on real world examples.
The course is designed for the agency-level asset manager, maintenance manager and engineering consultants, and will provide all participants with a solid base of understanding of the various elements and stages of building a modern and forward-looking asset management program.
* This 2-day course kicks off the Infrastructure Asset Management Academy For Engineers and Planners (IAMA) program. For a limited time, this first course is being offered for free, and after taking this class students are encouraged to complete the entire IAMA program. Learn more about the academy here.
Day 1 will take a brief look back at TAM’s origins and will highlight a few key milestones and events that occurred along the way that helped to shape and define TAM into what it has become today and discuss the role that these – and other – events have played in influencing the future TAM trajectory. The background information provided will present the participants with a broad and useful perspective of how asset management has evolved over the previous two decades and will also establish a solid base of understanding that the attendees can leverage as they take the next steps on their TAM journey.
Day 2 will focus on several activities that are generally associated with the implementation of a TAM program. These fundamental components are not intended to be a comprehensive account of all TAM business functions, but rather represent a more simplistic (and realistic) view of important elements of a TAM program that when implemented properly can serve as the foundation and framework for building a sustainable and scalable TAM program.
