KBAM, i can see the difficulty
It¡¯s the time for a new module, and of course, for a new project. There are many materials about KBAM, which implies KBAM is definitely a difficult process. Take asset management as the example. Firstly, the scope of asset is quite broad, which includes both tangible and intangible assets. Secondly, so many factors need to be taken into consideration in AM. In my opinion, it is more difficult to manage intangible asset than the tangible one. Tangible asset is easy to identify while sometimes intangible asset may be overlooked. Also, the outcomes of tangible asset are easier to calculate but it is hard to identify the results of intangible asset. Therefore, perhaps people would prefer to manage tangible asset because the contribution of it can always be seen directly and thus motivate people. In addition, I can see there are a lot of interactions among different kinds of AM, so maybe it is easier to apply AM in small companies than in large companies. For example, it is likely that there is a conflict between environment management and maintenance management. When the number of assets increases, the conflict may grow, so more effort should be paid in order to balance it. What¡¯s more, in a large company, most of the time each department is only responsible for itself assets, therefore, many sub-optimizations will appear. More concerns should be paid either so as to reduce these shortages.
