Session: Developing a Strategic Asset Management Plan for Charleston Water System
Developing a Strategic Asset Management Plan for Charleston Water System
Connie Banegas, Director of Asset Management and GIS, Charleston Water System
Between November 2016 and May 2018 Charleston Water System (CWS) developed a comprehensive Strategic Asset Management Plan (SAMP) to guide our Asset Management (AM) journey during the five-year strategic planning period of 2018-23. Developing the SAMP was a collective effort involving CWS subject matter experts that comprise the CWS Strategic AM Team. This presentation outlines the team’s step-by-step process to develop and begin implementing the SAMP. Communication and education in promoting the culture shift needed for an organization to understand, accept, and progress a SAMP and an AM Program is important. The presentation concludes with a brief overview on understanding resource requirements, an extremely important and often overlooked aspect of AM program development. A published version of the SAMP is available here – http://www.charlestonwater.com/473/Asset-Management.
