Let us know what you think about the topics and information on asset management over the past year.

What's hot in asset management in 2023? The insights on our website provide a good snapshot. Read a few of the fifteen articles and let us know your thoughts. We trust that you will find them helpful.

The Sources of the Articles

The articles were based on the most interesting people and topics we encountered in our travels. For the most part, travels include the consulting assignments of JD Solomon Solutions. In some cases, the source of the article is related to the follow-up conversations from a workshop or webinar.

No Particular Order or Predetermined List

JD Solomon Solutions is a lean, niche company. That means most of the content creation for the website falls on me and not our team. Time is precious, so everything comes from the wild. The golden rule is, “See it, write about it, and post it.” That makes looking back on the previous year's content just as informative as the articles themselves.

What’s In Asset Management

JD Solomon Solutions covers the broad range of asset management services described by the international asset management standard, ISO 55000.

We sharpen that list with the 3Rs – Reliability, Risk, and Resilience. Our key specialty services include criticality analysis, financial forecasting for renewal & replacement, reliability & risk assessments, root cause analysis, and O&M improvements. Please see our Asset Management webpage for more information.

There is a Good Range of Topics
