Total Cost of Ownership and Life Cycle Management are topics of great importance within Asset Management.  Asset Management can be defined as "the set of coordinated activities that an organization uses to realize values from assets in the delivery of its outcomes and objectives.  Realization of value requires the achievement of a balance of costs, risks and benefits, often over different time periods."  Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) (the financial term) includes total cost of acquisition and operating costs.  TCO, when incorporated in any financial benefit analysis, provides a cost basis for determining the total economic value of an investment.  Life Cycle Management (LCM) is a business "cradle to grave" approach to managing an asset's entire lifecycle from its design and conception, through development and implementation, to service, and disposal.

Join us for a webinar on TCO/LCM on July 31, 2013 focusing on the concepts, applications and lessons learned.  Many organization's decision processes focus primarily on the investment or acquisition costs and often pay minimal attention to the overall asset life cycle costs including commissioning and disposal.  This webinar will provide an introduction to these important considerations.
