Announcement of new project - Asset Information Management Strategies

The Distributed Information and Automation Laboratory (DIAL) has announced it is to begin a new two-year research project to develop asset information management strategies for complex engineering systems that deploys key emerging technologies.


The aim of the project is to develop practical tools for use by asset managers for designing information management strategies to significantly improve their ability to manage their assets throughout their lifecycle in a cost-effective manner. In particular, the project will examine and demonstrate the impact of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) on the effectiveness with which these assets are managed throughout their lifecycle, especially during the usage and retirement phases.


The project is in collaboration with several universities worldwide including the Engineering Design Centre, Cambridge University; Keio University, Japan; Erasmus University, Rotterdam; EPFL, Lausanne and Cranfield University.
