"Managing and Leveraging Change in Infrastructure Assets"
Infrastructure assets such as power generation plants are unique because of their scale, complexity, and life expectancy…and the requirements of managing their changing information.
Infrastructure assets are unique due to their scale, complexity, and life expectancy. Over the considerable lifetime of an infrastructure asset, change - both within and from without - is an inevitable and unavoidable fact of life. It can be predictable or unexpected, manageable or catastrophic, beneficial or disastrous, significant or inconsequential, inevitable or avoidable.
This free white paper discusses:
The challenges faced by infrastructure asset owners from an information technology perspective as they grapple with issues associated with change
Unique information technology requirements needed to support effective decision making in highly engineered environments
The keys to managing changing information, not only across the lifecycle of these assets, but also across information silos and disparate functional groups
The requirements and rationale for effective information technology systems that enable both management of change as well as the ability to leverage change to your advantage
