Standard Practice for Asset Utility
|Publication Date:||1 July 2006|
|ICS Code (Company organization and management in general):||03.100.01|
This practice establishes a quantitative process for asset utility, an asset priority index (API), to provide managers with a method to prioritize assets based on predefined criteria.
The API has a wide range of applications including, but not limited to, use as a basis for capital investment strategies, deferred maintenance approaches, security design and analyses, continuity of business/risk analyses, and disposition decisions.
The API model is designed to be applicable and appropriate for entities holding equipment designated as capital assets.
In addition to the applicability of moveable and durable assets as defined in this practice, this methodology may in whole or in part be effectively applied to intangible property, real property, and materiel.
