SCHOEMAN, J.S. and VLOK, P.J.. The possible influence of risk management, forecasting, and personnel training in physical asset management. S. Afr. J. Ind. Eng. [online]. 2014, vol.25, n.2, pp.96-104. ISSN 2224-7890.
The work presented in this paper highlights the possible effects of risk management, forecasting, and personnel training in the physical asset management environment. Each section is taken separately, and an argument is formed as to why it is important and what portion of the physical asset management five-year budget each should receive. This paper considers the long-term and short-term benefits in its conclusion that risk management should receive 60 per cent of the budget, personnel training 25 per cent, and forecasting the final 15 per cent.
