A tecnologia emergente dos dispositivos móveis como telefones celulares, handhelds e smartphones trouxe um novo paradigma para o uso desses equipamentos, que, além das convencionais chamadas de áudio, hoje suportam vídeo, internet e redes sem fio. Várias aplicações têm sido desenvolvidas para esse ambiente. Por outro lado, na área da automação industrial, os instrumentos de campo modernos contêm embutidos, internamente, conjuntos de informações que proporcionam grande oportunidade para a gestão de ativos. A necessidade do gerenciamento de ativos ocorre na fase de operação da planta industrial e é realizada por meio de ajustes finos, calibrações, alteração de configurações e manutenções, com o objetivo de se evitar paradas indesejadas. Esse trabalho insere-se no contexto de interface entre esses dois mundos: a computação móvel e o gerenciamento de ativos. Nesse sentido, é desenvolvida uma análise dos padrões abertos PROFIBUS PA, HART e Foundation Fieldbus e o uso das suas características aplicado ao gerenciamento de ativos. É apresentada, ainda, uma proposta e verificação de viabilidade técnica de uma arquitetura aplicada ao gerenciamento de ativos a partir de um dispositivo móvel usando-se um canal de comunicação seguro baseado no padrão CyberOPC para acesso à planta industrial; The emerging technology of mobile devices like cell phones...

Esta investigación presenta una integración de la gestión de activos (Asset Management) y el mantenimiento centrado en confiabilidad (Reliability Center Maintenance - RCM), como una propuesta para plantear una metodología o plan estructurado en la gestión del mantenimiento, en una industria de transformación de plásticos. Se busca establecer si dicha metodología lograría ser aplicada a medianas y grandes industrias colombianas, caracterizadas por tener producciones ininterrumpidas, donde una falla puede representar el paro de la producción, con las implicaciones que esto conlleva. De esta manera el Asset Management utiliza técnicas y herramientas de análisis de confiabilidad para optimizar el desempeño de los activos. Por otra parte, el RCM es una estrategia de análisis sistemática, objetiva y documentada, que se centra en la función que realizan los equipos, donde el objetivo principal es hacer que los esfuerzos de mantenimiento sean dirigidos a mantener dicha función, más que los equipos mismos. Aún así, el tema de la gestión del mantenimiento, se ha visto opacada en las compañías por ser un área que consume grandes cantidades de recursos, que desde el punto de vista contable solo refleja gastos y que no es visto como una inversión a largo plazo. Con esta propuesta se analiza si es posible cambiar...

Asset management companies have been used to address the overhang of bad debt in the financial system. There are two main types of asset management company: those set up to expedite corporate restructuring and those established for rapid disposal of assets. A review of seven asset management companies reveals a mixed record. In two of three cases, asset management companies for corporate restructuring did not achieve their narrow goal of expediting bank or corporate restructuring, suggesting that they are not good vehicles for expediting corporate restructuring. Only a Swedish asset management company successfully managed its portfolio, acting sometimes as lead agent in restructuring - and helped by the fact that the assets acquired had mostly to do with real estate, not manufacturing, which is harder to restructure, and represented a small fraction of the banking systems assets, which made it easier for the company to remain independent of political pressures and to sell assets back to the private sector. Asset management companies used to dispose of assets rapidly fared somewhat better. Two of four agencies (in Spain and the United States) achieved their objectives...

MBA Professional Report; The purpose of this MBA project is to identify the potential value of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) used for inventory and asset management at the Tobyhanna Army Maintenance Depot. Tobyhanna Army Depot recently partnered with WhereNet Corporation for a pilot program to incorporate a real-time locating system that uses RFID. The pilot program tracks the AN/TPS-75 and AN/TRC-170 systems through the maintenance processes to determine if RFID is beneficial. The RFID asset management system proved beneficial to increase process efficiency and reduce the number of wasted labor hours used to find misplaced items. The cost-benefit analysis at the Tobyhanna Army Depot RFID pilot program indicates a Return on Investment of less than one year and supports previous research conducted on RFID as an asset management tool. Tobyhanna's investment in advancing technology essentially paid for itself within one year when measured in labor cost savings and yielded an annual savings of 837 Repair Cycle Time days. Since the primary infrastructure for RFID is already funded and fully operational, the payoff period on incremental investment is likely to be much shorter in the future.; US Navy (USN) author

The road sector represents a significant asset to any country both in terms of the physical cost to build it, and the social and economic benefits that it facilitates. Good asset management in the road sector is about obtaining the desired benefits at the least whole-of-life cost, and it is therefore natural to seek to implement a robust asset management approach on what is typically a nation's largest asset. Implementation of performance based contracting (PBC) necessitates the identification of many of the cornerstones to asset management, such as knowing the asset, managing risks, and determining the sustainable level of service for the funds available. The aim of this guide is to help understand: (1) what asset management is and why it is important; (2) how performance based contracting delivers good asset management; and (3) the issues and challenges associated with successful implementation of a performance based contract. This guide is focused on PBCs with a significant contract term. This guide draws extensively on the report...

The objective of this paper is to identify the possible role and opportunities for the private sector to participate with governments and farmers in developing and managing irrigation and drainage (I&D) infrastructure. Over the last 50 years, irrigated agriculture has been vital to meeting fast-rising food demand and has been key to poverty reduction. In the coming years the strong demographic demand for food is expected to continue, and intensified irrigated agriculture will have to provide close to 60 percent of the extra food. However, in recent years, the pace of irrigation expansion has been slowing, there has been less improvement in productivity, and water availability for irrigation is increasingly constrained. Governments have long led the expansion of large-scale irrigation, but performance has been suboptimal, and reforms that have been introduced have proved slow to improve efficiency and water service. Faced with this challenge, the I&D sector has been wrestling with three deep-seated problems: low water use efficiency...

The guide is organized into three major parts: Part A first provides an overview of the problem of stolen assets and the problem of recovering the assets once they are transferred abroad. Second, it describes how the international community has taken steps to respond to the problem through United Nations Convention against Corruption (UNCAC) and the Stolen Asset Recovery (StAR) Initiative. UNCAC introduced a new framework to facilitate the tracing, freezing, seizing, forfeiture, and return of assets stolen through corrupt practices and hidden in foreign jurisdictions. The StAR Initiative developed an action plan to support the domestication and implementation of asset recovery provisions under UNCAC, to facilitate countries' efforts to recover stolen assets that have been hidden in foreign jurisdictions, and ultimately, to help deter such flows and eliminate safe havens for hiding corruption proceeds. Third and finally, Part A introduces non-conviction based (NCB) asset forfeiture as one of the critical tools to combat corruption...

The report is addressed to two audiences: the World Bank team and the decision makers and technical experts at the city administration who define the future of land and asset management in Warsaw. The report starts (section two) from reviewing municipal property holdings and associated institutional arrangements. This section focuses primarily on land and financial aspects of asset management, due to the overall orientation of the report and its limited scope. Portfolios of built-up properties are considered only partly, mainly for indicating the grand magnitude of the total holdings. For the same reason, the institutional arrangements are analyzed only at the level that identify main issues, but not details. Section three reviews main achievements, challenges, and risks related to municipal land and asset management in Warsaw. Section four considers the experiences of Warsaw with public-private partnerships (PPPs) in the past and on city's plans. This section also includes a discussion of a PPP potential related to such transportation facilities as Park and Ride (P&R)...

The Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM), which relates the risk of an individual security to its expected return, is frequently cited in investments textbooks and the academic literature as a centerpiece of modem finance theory. The main prediction of the CAPM is that investors are compensated in the form of expected return only for bearing systematic or market risk, which is the portion of a security's risk that cannot be diversified away. That investors demand reparation for and only for systematic risk is a consequence from the pivotal assumption that all investors have identical information for the entire universe of publicly traded securities. In actuality, professional active money managers rarely invest in a portfolio broad enough to be considered the market portfolio. Instead, the asset management industry has self-organized over time according to a top-down investment process, where asset allocators provide capital to security selectors who specialize in high-yield bonds, large-cap value stocks, and the like. Any losses in diversification benefits resulting from this theoretically suboptimal two-phase investment strategy are deemed an unavoidable cost of obtaining accurate forecasts through specialization in security analysis and portfolio management.; (cont.) This research paper extends the ideas of the CAPM to formulate an equilibrium security pricing model that attempts to account for the top-down approach followed by investors in the real-world.; by Leonid Keyser.; Thesis (M.B.A.)--Massachusetts Institute of Technology...

On the role of F\"ollmer-Schweizer minimal martingale measure in Risk Sensitive control Asset Management

Kuroda and Nagai \cite{KN} state that the factor process in the Risk Sensitive control Asset Management (RSCAM) is stable under the F\"ollmer-Schweizer minimal martingale measure . Fleming and Sheu \cite{FS} and more recently F\"ollmer and Schweizer \cite{FoS} have observed that the role of the minimal martingale measure in this portfolio optimization is yet to be established. In this article we aim to address this question by explicitly connecting the optimal wealth allocation to the minimal martingale measure. We achieve this by using a "trick" of observing this problem in the context of model uncertainty via a two person zero sum stochastic differential game between the investor and an antagonistic market that provides a probability measure. We obtain some startling insights. Firstly, if short-selling is not permitted and if the factor process evolves under the minimal martingale measure then the investor's optimal strategy can only be to invest in the riskless asset (i.e. the no-regret strategy). Secondly, if the factor process and the stock price process have independent noise, then even if the market allows short selling, the optimal strategy for the investor must be the no-regret strategy while the factor process will evolve under the minimal martingale measure .; Comment: A.Deshpande (2015)...

Digital asset management (DAM) is one of the value-added services many printers provide. It often is included in the top tier along with e-commerce, finishing, and fulfillment. Since DAM is a relatively new concept, certain technical and business issues need to be investigated. Today, DAM is an integral organizational component that companies must adopt if they are to compete in the marketplace. However, many companies find it difficult to implement technological strategies to meet the marketplace challenges of increased competition, increased customer demands, and the demands of Internet revolution. To implement DAM solutions, traditional companies must be able to adapt. Organizational success in technological initiatives hinges on whether or not companies can make the transformation from managing tangible products to storing intangible data as a service. As asset management becomes a mounting concern, total communication across the organization will become increasingly relevant. Today’s integrated digital workflows require all workers to be aware of what is happening upstream and downstream from them (Core, 2003, p. 35). A company’s DAM strategy has to revolve around the optimal creation, use, reuse, and repurposing of its assets. Printers are becoming more savvy about repurposing; the next step is to “co-purpose” at the time a digital object is created. DAM plays a crucial role in the cross-media integration and migration in this endeavor. A thorough literature review will set the stage for future surveys in the area of DAM...

Data and information quality is a well-established research topic and gradually appears on the decision-makers' top concern lists. Many studies have been conducted on how to investigate the generic data/information quality issues and factors by providing a high-level abstract framework or model. Based on the previous studies, the researchers of this paper tried to discuss the actual data quality problems with the operation-level and middle-level managers in engineering asset management and reviewing the existing data cleansing software tools against real engineering asset databases, the deficiencies of the existing data cleansing approach are highlighted.

The water utility sector in South Africa is presently facing numerous challenges. Amongst the most urgent and important priorities is ageing infrastructure, which has the potential to end in failures with detrimental impacts on local communities and the natural environment. Furthermore, to manage the majority of strategic assets in terms of total performance, i.e. environmental, financial, social and technical, is often difficult as a large portion of assets, such as buried pipelines, cannot be easily accessed. These issues highlight the need for a generic asset life-cycle management model for the water utility sector. Such an integrated model is introduced; it was evaluated in the largest water utility in South Africa. Although it was found to have relevance, practicability, applicability, and usability, the model still needs rigorous testing amongst other water utilities in South Africa, and in other countries. The perceptions of the water utility sector were also assessed in terms of the practices of the principles of integrated life-cycle asset management. The results indicate a fairly good understanding of the concept of asset life-cycle management, but allude to challenges with fully implementing all the principles when it comes to asset performance measurements; particular attention must be given to develop mechanisms to measure environmental and social aspects. Nevertheless...

The challenge to sustain railways depends on the ability to optimise the utilisation of the asset base. It demands the establishment of a continuous asset improvement process which requires maintenance personnel continuously to improve their understanding of the infrastructure's performance and the relevance of the configuration to this performance. A successful asset management process incorporates these elements and results in the optimisation of the infrastructure life cycle by extending useful life while minimising the operational interference, thereby increasing capacity. The effect of condition-based maintenance is illustrated, signifying how this maintenance strategy increases maintenance effectiveness (doing the right things at the right places), thus decreasing maintenance costs. It is apparent that with an increase in maintenance effectiveness, less time will be spent on maintaining assets, resulting in an increase of asset availability adding to the business objectives, allowing for an increase in operations. The paper demonstrates how condition-based and condition performance-based maintenance can enable railway organisations to save up to roughly 30% on their maintenance costs, while increasing capacity to approximately the same value.

This study explores the implementation of an integrated capital budgeting visual mapping framework comprised of both Discounted Cash Flow (DCF) and Real Options Analysis (ROA) techniques. Physical asset investment decisions are based largely on rigid discounted cash flow tools which provide untimely and incomplete decisional criteria. While literature outlines the widespread use of traditional DCF techniques, it nevertheless reveals extensive limitations, including its static inflexibility and slow-to-evolve framework. ROA is a more recent valuation tool based on stock option theory. It brings into account added value found in the flexibility of managerial decision-making and uncertain conditions. This study implements a combined DCF and ROA capital budgeting tool within a Physical Asset Management (PAM) environment. The validity of the framework is realised through an industry-relevant case study presented by a South African mining company.
