Unit aim

Provides students with skills in the organisation, implementation and management of strategies to purchase, maintain and enhance the longevity of public and private infrastructure assets and engineering technology. Asset management software tools are introduced. Emphasis is on developing strategic asset management decision making skills in students, through activities that integrate underpinning theories and best engineering industry practice.

Unit content

Topic 1. Asset management frameworks.
Topic 2. Principles of life-cycle analyses associated with operation, maintenance and renewal of infrastructure assets and engineering technology.
Topic 3. Familiarisation with software tools.
Topic 4. Assessing remaining service life and renewal strategies.
Topic 5. Planning and implementation of asset management: managing costs, resources, quality and risks.

Learning outcomes

Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
