Completed Research Projects

We have been involved in a number of exciting research projects supported by industrial partners.

Strategic Asset Management


Sustainable Design and Management of Industrial Assets

Funded by the EU H2020 programme, this project aims to develop a framework that helps industries understand and manage the whole-life cost and value generated by their assets.


Asset Management System Performance

This project aimed at developing a framework for developing performance measures for asset management systems.


Asset Criticality Analysis

This research addresses an increasing need in the industry to prioritize maintenance activities and investments based on the criticality and associated risk of assets.


Infrastructure Futureproofing

This project aimed at developing a framework to understand the futureproofing needs of infrastructure assets, and to develop a tool to measure the level of futureproofedness of such systems.


Management of complex systems


Intelligent fault diagnostics

Funded by Hitachi Rail, this activity developed a fault-diagnostic system and fault-data management system for locomotives.


Asset Information Management


Information Quality for Asset Management (IQAM)

IQAM was an EPSRC funded project that aims to develop a methodology and tool to quantify and optimise information quality in the context of asset management to improve the economic sustainability of asset-intensive organisations.


Infrastructure Information futureproofing

The aim of this project was to develop a tool that will help identify and measure the long-term risks associated with the management of infrastructure information.


Strategies for Asset Information Management (SAIM)

SAIM aimed to develop and test new strategies for managing information associated with complex engineering assets. In particular, we aimed to examine and demonstrate the impact of key emerging technologies such as Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) on the effectiveness with which these assets are managed throughout their lifecycle - particularly during the usage and retirement phases.
