DST modules can be used individually or in combination to evaluate what is worth doing, why and when, in managing any type of physical asset in any type of organization.
Developed as part of an international,
multi-industry collaboration program (the SALVO Project), and validated by the University of Cambridge, they enable best practices in asset management decision-making.
They are available as stand-alone desktop-based software licenses, or as network-installed corporate multi-user systems, with scope for interfacing and embedding within existing business processes.
DST modelling and analysis can also be obtained as a service from our network of expert facilitators and consultancy partners around the world.
