An asset lifecycle is the series of stages involved in the management of an asset. It starts with the planning stages when the need for an asset is identified and continues all the way through its useful life and eventual disposal. The basic premise of asset lifecycle management is to extend your assets’ usability as far as you can, without losing any functionality, thereby decreasing total lifetime costs and increasing the economic value-add of the asset. For example, when maintenance is neglected, companies have to struggle with the resulting unexpected breakdowns, long delays, and costly emergency maintenance. Proper asset lifecycle management can improve the process of maintaining and managing valuable assets.
