Here a link, there a link, everywhere a link.
I'm noticing that in Knowledge and Asset Management, every topic seems linked in someway to another. This just compounds the complexity of the topic. Discussion with my team members we start to see overlaps in the themes we're covering, take for example Health and Safety, the management of assets relating to health and safety issues links to facilities management in that the H&S aspects must be considered in the planning of assets in terms of facilities. Facilities management in turn can be linked to maintenance because the requirements and processes for maintance involve all aspects of assets, including buildings. The more all the topics are developed the more these links build up. Then to add to it, the links are then developed between asset management and knowledge management. Its all interconnected!
Not only though are topics of KBAM linked, but they are also related to everything we've done this year so far!!!
Environment management --> Corporate social responsibility
Reactive maintenance --> Six Sigma
The list goes on and on and on....
