    way to protect the investment that Atlanta has made in its watershed infrastructure in recent years and will make by 2014 is by applying best appropriate asset management practices throughout its organization Much of the existing Capital Improvement Program involves catching up on deferred rehabilitation and replacement work from prior years It also includes capital projects that are necessary to meet certain regulatory requirements Our challenge is to improve our overall management of Atlanta s watershed infrastructure such that we provide service that is acceptable socially environmentally and economically This approach is known as the triple bottom line It means that we base our overall service delivery strategy on meeting levels of service that are accepted by customers and stakeholders socially environmentally and economically In business the term bottom line refers to the line that is drawn across the bottom of a financial statement A financial statement includes all of the income and expenses incurred by a business for a specified period of time day week month quarter etc Below the bottom line lies the value that indicates profit or loss for the period It simply defines how well or how badly the business is doing at a specific point in time Knowing what the bottom line really is helps managers determine actions that may be taken to make adjustments to business processes so that the mission and goals of the organization are achieved The goal of most businesses is to make a profit Our business is centered around managing our watershed and protecting human health Our principal product line includes drinking water wastewater treatment and storm water management In this business we must continually measure our bottom line environmentally socially and economically We are deploying asset management principles throughout our organization to sustain delivery of highly valued services to

  • SIMPLE - Executive Summary
    management program The message that the sky is falling has caused many to rush into programs only to find that they haven t realized any real benefits or culture change In addition many of those that have adopted comprehensive programs aimed at sustainability get stuck in the visioning and strategy phases Asset Management principles can be applied to any utility now using the knowledge and information that is available It is not necessary or wise to put off Asset Management until a detailed asset inventory can be performed or a detailed condition assessment is made You can start now and receive quick benefits Then gradually collect more detailed information and expand Asset Management to other areas Asset Management Principles include a broad range of activities but the key aspects are Setting Service Levels Managing Risk to drive asset related decisions Minimizing Life Cycle Costs Managing asset related knowledge There are many different definitions for Asset Management however it can be described in simple terms as the process you use to manage the lifecycle of your car A typical Asset Management process starts with conducting an asset inventory performing a condition assessment determining the criticality of the assets and evaluating alternatives for repairs rehabilitation or replacement based on minimum life cycle costs This process implies that a detailed asset inventory and condition assessment are required to start the Asset Management AM process Too often utilities have been intimidated or bogged down by the enormity of that assignment and have simply given up before they got started This approach is similar to having your car dismantled so that it can be totally inspected before you make any repairs You can start now to apply Asset Management principles to any utility with the information and knowledge you currently have A revised AM process
