Data-Driven Solutions
for Risk and Reliability


Chris Silkie is the City of Portland, Oregon Park & Recreation Asset Management Program Manager and participated in the creation of the municipality’s Asset Management Policy, which was passed by a unanimous vote by the City Council. Mr. Silkie credited involvement in the ALN Advancing Equity with Asset Leadership Board as influencing key language in the Asset Management Policy, which can also be read as an Equity Policy. On Wednesday 3 November at 3 pm Eastern, Mr. Silkie will present on the document and then will be joined by members of the Board to discuss it and other key issues. Register at this link. See the Asset Management Policy at this link.


Asset Performance Measurement


A key element of a structured approach to asset management is establishing intended outcomes and measuring performance against those organizational goals. Brian Kiaser, P.E., ISO 55000 Subject Expert with Life Cycle Engineering, an ALN Organizational Member, has an article in Industry Week focused on multiple dimensions of measuring asset management performance. Mr. Kiaser suggest measuring asset performance, asset management performance, and asset management system performance. This 3-pronged approach to performance measurement reflects the layered nuance in successful approaches to asset management.


Plan to Create a Climate Emergency Action Plan

Last week, the Institute for Asset Management published their “Climate Emergency Action Planning; Guidance for asset owning organisations” so it can be presented next month at the UN Climate Change Conference. The introduction states, “This document reflects our current understanding of how the practice of asset management can best address the climate emergency challenge, and the advice we provide will continue to evolve as we work with our members and organizations across the world in facing this challenge.” Thank you to IAM North American President, Amy Lindbloom, for sharing the document. We commend the IAM for their work on this important resource, which is available at this link.
