Completed Research Projects
Strategic Asset Management
Funded by the EU H2020 programme, this project aims to develop a framework that helps industries understand and manage the whole-life cost and value generated by their assets.
This project aimed at developing a framework for developing performance measures for asset management systems.
This research addresses an increasing need in the industry to prioritize maintenance activities and investments based on the criticality and associated risk of assets.
This project aimed at developing a framework to understand the futureproofing needs of infrastructure assets, and to develop a tool to measure the level of futureproofedness of such systems.
Management of complex systems
Funded by Hitachi Rail, this activity developed a fault-diagnostic system and fault-data management system for locomotives.
Asset Information Management
IQAM was an EPSRC funded project that aims to develop a methodology and tool to quantify and optimise information quality in the context of asset management to improve the economic sustainability of asset-intensive organisations.
The aim of this project was to develop a tool that will help identify and measure the long-term risks associated with the management of infrastructure information.
SAIM aimed to develop and test new strategies for managing information associated with complex engineering assets. In particular, we aimed to examine and demonstrate the impact of key emerging technologies such as Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) on the effectiveness with which these assets are managed throughout their lifecycle - particularly during the usage and retirement phases.
