Special Issue Information

Introduction

Limitations on natural resources together with new energy objectives have changed the way energy production, storage, and transportation assets must be managed. This function is now clearly oriented to eco-efficiency, enhancing the life-cycle of the assets, while ensuring their reliability, availability, maintainability, and safety features, which are now stressed beyond conventional limits.

For this purpose, intelligent assets management platforms which are based on the use of digital technologies in the industry are required. The idea of monitoring and managing assets over the Internet is gaining ground and smoothly becoming a standard. Through cloud-based intelligent asset management systems, unprecedented levels of management transparency and efficiency are brought into the entire industry and infrastructures. The adoption and deployment of modern ‘predictive analytics’ and ‘Internet of Things’ (IoT) technologies also leads to important advances, including much greater management proactivity and assets connectivity.

This Special Issue aims to further study the impact of these new intelligent assets management platforms into advanced business digital strategies, and it will discuss emerging assets management reference frameworks. The idea is holding together the strategic vision with the practical implementation of these platforms, ensuring those right steps for the subsequent deployment of these infrastructures for a more efficient business value chain.

Objective of the Special Issue

This Special Issue essentially seeks the promotion and dissemination of advanced intelligent assets management platforms, fostering energy production, storage, and transportation assets eco-efficiency.

Target Audience

Engineers, academicians, researchers, advanced-level students (both postgraduate and doctoral), technology developers, and managers who take decisions in this field will find this text useful in furthering their research exposure to pertinent topics in asset management, assisting in furthering their own research efforts in this field. Specific international interest groups for this special issue are as follows:

  • IFAC WG on “Advanced Maintenance Engineering, Services and Technologies” supported by IFAC TC 5.1/TC 4.4 (International Federation of Automatic Control);
  • ESRA and ESREL (European Safety and Reliability Association and Conference);
  • ESReDA—European Safety, Reliability & Data Association;
  • EURENSEAM (European Research Network on Strategic Engineering Asset Management);
  • ISEAM and WCEAM (International Society and World Congress on Engineering Assets Management).

Recommended topics include but are not limited to the following:

Contributors are welcome to submit papers on the following topics relating to the development of intelligent asset management platforms and implementation in industrial environments, for the improvement of the energy production, storage, and transportation asset management:

  • Review of intelligent assets management platforms;
  • Emerging technologies and their implications in assets management;
  • Emerging assets management techniques and processes;
  • Assets life cycle and eco-efficiency;
  • Case studies on digital asset management and their implementation;
  • Advanced assets management systems for:
    • Thermal and photovoltaic solar systems
    • On/Off-shore wind turbines and wind farms
    • Network utilities and smart grids
    • Etc.
  • Case studies on asset management and their implementation;
  • Industrial management and reliability analysis;
  • Industrial safety and sustainability.

This Special Issue is also intended to provide a practical view, so case studies on real contexts will be very welcomed.
