Asset management is a broad subject but ultimately it is about ensuring that the asset remains fit for purpose throughout its expected life at a price which is affordable.

This lecture will highlight the importance for the engineer to be guided by the commercial reality in his relations with the supply chain, the customer and the OEM, highlighting past failures that have created either safety risks for the operator or commercial risks for the owner. It will also argue that at a time when today’s railways are changing technically more quickly than at any time in its history, there is a commercial need for a proper design authority structure to be in place for the life of an asset.
