TWPL provides asset management decision support using established best practices in the decision-making around the management of aging assets. The SALVO (Strategic Assets: Lifecycle Value Optimization) Project was a three-year collaboration set up to establish best practices in asset management decision-making. For more information on the SALVO Project, please visit the project’s website (www.SALVOproject.org).
The SALVO Process
The SALVO project mapped decision-making processes for a wide range of decision types. These processes define the steps needed to answer questions such as ‘When should I replace my aging asset?‘ or ‘Is it worth refurbishing to extend its life?’. These processes and steps for over 40 common decision types have been arranged into a storyboard approach to make navigation simple and enable options to be compared in value-for-money terms.
The SALVO Process, supported by the DST Asset Strategy Evaluator software, represents the world-leading decision making methods for optimizing asset management decisions in all life cycle stages.
