About this title

Ian Barnard's unique book, Engineering Asset Management an Insurance Perspective, is a compilation of experiences and observations in the fields of asset management, engineering consulting and insurance. He has been exposed to asset management systems from all parts of the world and from all types of industry. His book presents the best of the best in asset management systems and highlights common pitfalls which prevent these systems from achieving excellence. The underlying theme of the book is that it is not technology that defines an effective asset management system, but rather people. While this book presents an insurance perspective on engineering asset management systems, a central tenet of insurance is that if it saves the insurance company money, it will save the client money.
