As part of Asset Management Awareness Month, see this essay about how the ALN BIMStorm – Higher Education program made history last week by being the first public demonstration we know of to showcase Artificial Intelligence creating a Building Information Model with rooms and personal property assets in the rooms. Congratulations to ALN Platinum Member ONUMA, Inc. for its achievement and for leaders from NIBS, NASEM, APPA, and Academic Interoperability Coalition for participating in the historic event.

Jacobs: Challenging today.
Reinventing tomorrow.


Cyril Verley, President and CEO of CDV Systems will be the ALN Th@3 pm ET guest this Thursday 29 March. Mr. Verley has been a leader in applying advanced Building Information Model technology to the building industry and now sees his role as serving the asset management industry. He sees that owners have powerful Building Information Models, but they don’t extract the information about the assets in an automated and systematic way. They typically waste money by manually collecting information that can already be “Harvested” from the Model. Join us as we welcome new organizational member CDV Systems to the ALN family.

Municipal Water Leader


Municipal Water Leader magazine as an excellent online article that features an interview with Tacoma Zach, CEO, Mentor Graphics, and Uberlytics, ALN organizational members that focus on utility asset holders. Mr. Zach presents his positions on risk analysis, enterprise asset management, CMMS, and how they all work together to help organizations achieve their intended outcomes. Projects in Alexandria, Virginia and Santa Monica, California are discussed. The interview provides an excellent opportunity to learn about issues to overcome and problems to address without having to go through them yourself.


Get A55K Training

The Andrew James Advisory Group is holding ALN A55K Professional Certification training throughout 2023. The 2-week web course provides one of the most thorough and meaningful understandings of the ISO 55000/1/2 asset management structure. The training involves recorded courses and readings as well as instructed web discussions. A final session involves creation of a Strategic Asset Management Plan that drives home the theory into a class activity that can be used directly at work. Teams starting their asset management journey with a combination of in-house staff and contracted consultants can schedule a private training course to begin speaking the same language and seeing complex issues through the same lens.
