The Trans-European North-South Motorway (TEM) Project was initiated to facilitate road traffic in Central, Eastern and South-Eastern Europe and to assist with the process of integrating European transport infrastructure systems.
In order to improve the road network’s management, the Project provides TEM member countries with benchmarking of the current capacities of asset management, with up-to-date information on how to address the value creation process in their procedures, competencies and supporting information systems.
Asset management is understood as an ongoing value creation process that can be exercised with greater or lesser situational awareness on the part of the asset’s owner and manager. The level of awareness is reflected in the maturity of existing asset management systems within TEM Project member countries.
This high-level benchmarking of TEM member countries’ management capacities and tools can improve the asset management process both for individual project members and for the TEM network as a whole.
