                           Assessment Condition Assessment (ACA)
                                   Risk Assessment (RA)
                                  Business Planning (BA)

Asset demographics are not always a good indicator of true asset condition. Internal stakeholders
and regulators require documented justification for expenditures. This course will provide Utility
Engineers and Line Management with the knowledge, skills and process to perform Asset
Condition Assessment (ACA) and Risk Assessment (RA) to justify capital and maintenance
expenditures to internal and external decision makers. Only a legitimate health-indexing process
can lead to the accurate determination of an optimal timing and cost-benefit ratio. Kinectrics’
proven methodology is fully compliant with the Gold Standard of Asset Management Programs
outlined in BSI PAS 55 and has been used by numerous, large, fully-integrated utilities as well as
regional and municipal utilities.
