CV8107 Infrastructure Asset Management

Dr. Arnold Yuan is going to offer a new graduate course titled ‘Infrastructure Asset Management’ in Fall 2015.¬† The course materials will be delivered on the new learning and teaching system D2L, instead of Blackboard, which is being phased out at Ryerson.

In this course, we will discuss the framework, concepts, skills and methods used for infrastructure asset management. Topics to be discussed include system analysis, lifecycle costing, decision making under uncertainty, demand forecasting, performance measure and monitoring, inspection technologies, condition assessment, deterioration modeling and lifetime prediction, maintenance and rehabilitation optimization, prioritization and programming, innovative project delivery, and project and program management. Case studies and industrial guest lectures on designated asset classes (transportation and municipal water and wastewater infrastructure) will be introduced to enhance the integration of the topics.
