costs are one of three reinvestment
identified by a Facility
Condition Assessment (FCA).
Types of Catch-up
Catch-up costs include three separate categories, as follows:
1. Observational Catch-up - The accumulated backlog of deferred maintenance associated with the assets of a facility. This is based upon empirical data derived from site observation and is referred to as "Observational Catch-up" Some examples of catch-up cost items are listed below (with a few photographs on the right):
3. Transitional Catch-up - All work orders that have not been completed at the time of the assessment - Work Order Backlog.
Catch-up costs are identified, quantified, measured and benchmarked using the Facility Condition Index (FCI). The catch-up costs serve as the numerator in the formula, which is derived from a bottom-up approach that gathers all the individual pieces of empirical evidence.
It is important to recognize that backlog changes over time and will need to be re-assessed to reflect ongoing deterioration and the following:
Analysis of Catch-up
The catch-up costs can be sorted and filtered in a variety of ways to provide insight for the owner and management team, including:
Strategies for addressing the backlog are varied and include different means of reinvestment:
