The IAM Handbook

An essential resource for members

The IAM Handbook is being developed as a comprehensive reference for knowledge within the scope of the asset management discipline. The Handbook will be an exclusive IAM member benefit.

Once you have read the Anatomy and ISO 55000/1/2, what do you actually “do”? The IAM Handbook is the first place to go.

Should you do AM? What to do first? How to implement the AMS?
What about culture and people? How to approach external assessment? What to do about your supply chain? And so on…

Section 1: Asset Management System Application Guide

The AM System Application Guide has been developed by the Institute of Asset Management. It sets out a practical and pragmatic approach to help organisations on the asset management journey to develop and implement an asset management system that will achieve formal compliance with ISO 55000, and enable the realisation of value and good practice (as described in the IAM Anatomy and supporting Subject Specific Guidance documents). It is not intended to replace ISO 55002, but rather to extend and elaborate on how to implement asset management.

The AM System Guide also provides a reference for more advanced organisations wishing to improve – continual improvement being a requirement of good practice for all management systems.

Section 1 of the IAM Handbook (Draft version) was first available at the 2017 Annual Conference 26-28 June in Manchester to those attending the event.
