DEVELOPING BENCHMARK DATA TO GUIDE STRATEGIC CHANGE

WSP has developed an industry-leading Asset Management Capability Assessment Model (am2c) that draws upon over 20 years of experience in managing critical infrastructure. Our model is mapped to global standards, industry best practices and national industry legislative requirements.

The model is used to assess an organization’s asset management maturity—which measures the degree of formality and optimization of processes and practices from ad hoc, to formally defined steps, to managed results, to active optimization. The output is used to evaluate and benchmark an organization, and support the development of an asset management improvement program. The structure and approach ensure consistent and repeatable assessment and provide access to a significant global benchmark pool.
