Asset Management comprises of opportunities, balancing of costs and threats against the desired level of performance of assets, which is essential for the greatest return on investment and to attain the main objectives of the organization. One of the main objectives is minimizing the overall life cost of assets which can be affected by other indicators such as business continuity or risk during the decision-making process.”
