Essential to anyone involved in the planning, design, construction, operation or finance of infrastructure assets, this innovative work puts project delivery, finance, and operation together in a practical new formulation of how both public and private owners can better manage their entire collection of infrastructure facilities. Principles of Public and Private Infrastructure Delivery traces the history of infrastructure development and finance in the United States, and meticulously ties America's historical success in infrastructure to the simultaneous use of Design-Bid- Build, Design-Build, Design-Build-Operate, and Design-Build-Finance-Operate to deliver both public and private infrastructure collections. This historical background provides the basis for a new, integrated strategy for managing infrastructure assets in the 21st century. Principles of Public and Private Infrastructure Delivery provides the logic and practical tools that public and private decision-makers need to make better strategic choices in the application of scarce resources to infrastructure facilities. New tools are presented that permit simple comparisons of different project delivery and finance strategies. Practical approaches are provided that allow owners to quickly compare capital program alternatives for entire collections of infrastructure facilities. Practical legislative strategies for organizing the delivery of public infrastructure are presented and described. Principles of Public and Private Infrastructure Delivery provides a practical framework that owners can apply to implement a competitive infrastructure strategy and a principled framework that private sector firms can use to effectively reposition themselves in this changing market. It puts infrastructure asset management in an entirely new and more productive light, and establishes a new paradigm for steady improvement in the quality and cost performance of public and private infrastructure networks. Audience: This book will be an essential reference tool for infrastructure managers throughout the public and private sectors, including: Public Works Officials; Corporate Officials Responsible for Asset Management; State Legislators and Executive Officials; State Agencies and Regional Authorities Responsible for Transportation, Water Supply and Treatment; City Mayors, Town Managers, and Other Local Officials; Private Infrastructure Developers and Operators; Procurement and Project Counsel; Design-Builders; Constructors; Design Professionals; Management Consultants; Program Managers; and Financial Institutions.

It is with great pleasure that we welcome you to the inaugural World Congress on Engineering Asset Management (WCEAM) being held at the Conrad Jupiters Hotel on the Gold Coast from July 11 to 14, 2006. More than 170 authors from 28 countries have contributed over 160 papers to be presented over the first three days of the conference. Day four will be host to a series of workshops devoted to the practice of various aspects of Engineering Asset Management. WCEAM is a new annual global forum on the various multidisciplinary aspects of Engineering Asset Management. It deals with the presentation and publication of outputs of research and development activities as well as the application of knowledge in the practical aspects of: strategic asset management risk management in asset management design and life-cycle integrity of physical assets asset performance and level of service models financial analysis methods for physical assets reliability modelling and prognostics information systems and knowledge management asset data management, warehousing and mining condition monitoring and intelligent maintenance intelligent sensors and devices regulations and standards in asset management human dimensions in integrated asset management education and training in asset management and performance management in asset management. We have attracted academics, practitioners and scientists from around the world to share their knowledge in this important emerging transdiscipline that impacts on almost every aspect of daily life.

This book addresses the long-term maintenance, repair, and replacement of public infrastructure in a practical, cost effective manner--something that is missing in the current literature. Fixing our public infrastructure is essential for public health and safety and is fast becoming a national priority. This title provides an overview of the major public works infrastructure systems (water, sanitary sewer, stormwater, roads, bridges, and railways), including components, operational goals, maintenance, areas where failure can occur, and ways to address failure. Risk and vulnerability to these systems are evaluated and guidance on how to create a condition index (assessment), given limited data, is provided. It also includes statistical methods to make an assessment more robust. Recommendations on budgeting strategies and capital planning are also discussed and designed to bring the risk, vulnerability, and condition indices together into a thorough decision-making process. It is a must read for anyone involved in public infrastructure management, including professional civil and environmental engineers, utility managers, local government managers and officials, urban and regional planners, and civil and environmental engineering students. Key Features - Presents an overview of the components and maintenance needs of major public infrastructure systems - Outlines practical methods to gather data to assess the condition of each infrastructure system and tools to generate relevant data - Provides ways to evaluate risk and vulnerability in asset management and how to streamline the decision-making processes - Discusses the funding and prioritization of capital improvement projects within infrastructure systems - Expands on the use of work orders and repairs to improve information about each system - Includes critical case studies from around the United States where public infrastructure has failed, followed by the lessons learned - Features over 200 color figures and 75 tables to illustrate major points throughout the book, including the components of public water, sanitary sewer, and stormwater management systems - WAV contains instructor materials for adopting professors, including a proposed syllabus for the course, 15 PowerPoint lectures covering chapters 2 through 16, end-of-chapter homework questions and answers, project ideas for the instructor, GIS data sets for students to do their own condition assessments, and sample final and midterm exams--available from the Web Added Value Download Resource Center at www.jrosspub.com
