Facility management and project management converge when assessing lifecycle costs beyond the initial capital investment.

The introduction of ISO 55000 has made lifecycle costing a tangible challenge for many organizations. Consequently, organizations must seamlessly integrate lifecycle costing into the comprehensive consideration of project tasks and associated costs. This shift underscores the need to integrate ISO 55000 principles. This ensures a thorough assessment of the full scope of project work and its costs. Embracing lifecycle costing as an integral part of project management strategies helps organizations navigate modern challenges, foster sustainability, and achieve long-term success.
