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.
Webinar attendees will learn about the current status of asset management practice in the United States, how it has changed from 2015 to 2020, and why the practice has been slow to improve. Attendees will be shown assessment tools as well as resources to help them improve their asset management practice in all areas, particularly those areas that are weaker. Attendees will gain the skill of evaluating their level of maturity in asset management practice. They will also find out how to gauge their practice compared with others in the United States.
Utilities struggle to increase their level of asset management practice. Some areas of practice are much weaker than others; these areas were shown nationally through surveys conducted in 2015 and 2020. It is important for utilities to understand the level of their current practice and know about resources available for improving areas of practice in which they aren’t as strong. This webinar will reveal lower-level areas of asset management practice, discuss ways for attendees to gauge their own maturity level in all areas of asset management, and show where and how to access resources to help improve their asset management practice. Utilities can also determine where they stand compared with the overall practice in the United States.
As a result of this webinar, attendees will be able to:
- analyze their own asset management practice to determine their level of maturity.
- access resources to help improve their asset management practice.
- understand why their practice may not be as advanced as they would like.
- gauge their current asset management practice against the national practice.
- understand the current level of asset management nationally in 2020 and how it has changed since 2015.
