    Asset management supports long-term planning of physical assets and offers a structured approach for more sustainable manufacturing. Asset management aims to improve profitability of the production by supporting life cycle decision making by developing and applying optimal maintenance, capacity planning, and investment strategies. So far the impacts of networked business models and demands for sustainability have not been widely dealt with. The paper presents results from a road map exercise that aimed to identify future needs for sustainable manufacturing models, and focuses on the use of company networks for efficiency of physical assets. The main research questions addressed here are as follows: How does asset management contribute to the demands for more sustainable manufacturing and what implications the demand for more sustainable manufacturing has to asset management strategies?
