    This chapter of the book outlines the main factors of industrial asset management: physical asset creation and improvements (investments), use of assets and maintenance of assets. We introduce approaches to improve decision making in asset management. This text covers the influence of various business environments, life cycle profit approach and uncertainty aspects on asset management. The general global problems especially in the capital intensive industry seem to be even overcapacity, low returns on investment and increase of turbulence. From the physical assets point of view, these requirements mean a need for a dynamic and continual life cycle management, optimal capacity development, improved investment planning, higher overall equipment effectiveness and lower maintenance costs of the equipment. These challenges are discussed in this chapter and some solutions are presented.
