eSAM - Strategic Airport Asset Management
Airports are unique in that they have many operating departments.
Such as Landside and Airside Operations, Facilities, Maintenance, Security, Concessions, Marketing, and even Real Estate, which require managing asset classes in different ways.This variety of departments and assets may require disciplines and skill sets with varying, and often competing priorities to maintain them
Airports also provide services to a variety of customers, not just passengers; stakeholders include airlines, concessionaries and other tenants such as FBO’s. The complex working environment in Airports is generally comprised of several unions with multiple business flow rules, certifications, work schedules, etc. which present a challenge when trying to assign responsibilities across many locations. Airports are also driven by weather and outside events as well as regulations imposed by the FAA for Airfield Inspections and Safety Management System (SMS) requirements. Simultaneously managing these functions can prove to be a daunting task.
