Focuses on the primary data and analytical elements of an asset investment strategy, as well as ways to clearly communicate and execute them in terms of objectives, work priorities, funding or resources, and time. Taken together, as an integrated framework for decision making, all these elements can be illustrated graphically in a form called the Strategic Investment Pyramid.  Details the components of the pyramid, covering common terms and definitions, strategic priority indexes, mission dependency index, and asset priority index. Also discusses a suitability index, space utilization, life cost analysis, facility condition assessments, and total costs of ownership.  Diagrams and other figures illustrate and further explain these concepts.
