Asset Management Practice: Where Is the Industry, and Benchmarking Your Own Practice
Wednesday, October 6, 2021 @ 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM
This webinar is included in our full year subscription package.
One important question utilities have when they implement an asset management program is, what is the maturity level of my practice? They may also wonder, how do I compare with other utilities? This webinar will answer both of those questions. We will describe the current state of the asset management practice in the United States based on a national survey released by AWWA in 2020. This survey assessed practices across a variety of areas; the results of this survey, as well as how it compares with a similar survey released in 2015, will be discussed. We will discuss advancements in the practice of asset management as well as why practices may not have increased significantly, even as some states are mandating asset management. We will present tools to assess individual system asset management maturity and will discuss resources available to help improve asset management practice. The final portion of the webinar will include a panel discussion during which utilities can ask questions of the individuals who were involved in the survey and the webinar.
