CONGRESO Potential Barriers for Asset Management Systems: A Comparison between Libya and Spain

Abstract

The goal of the research described in this paper is to investigate the obstacles and barriers that countries face during the development of an asset management system for infrastructures. Two countries are chosen for the analysis: Libya and Spain. Twenty-eight potential barriers are identified in the literature. A questionnaire survey is developed, calibrated and validated, taking into consideration these barriers. It is answered online by 58 practitioners from these two countries using a 5-point Likert scale. Twenty barriers have been recognized as important by both groups of practitioners. However, there are five obstacles that were determined important for Libya only and two that were important just for Spain. The findings enhance the understanding of these barriers and clarify rooted obstacles by considering different perspectives.
