Southern Company Faculty Fellow and Associate Professor Jamie Coble, who also serves as the assistant department head for undergraduate studies and service, was recently elevated to Fellow of the International Society of Engineering Asset Management (ISEAM).
She was first inducted as a member of ISEAM, a professional society dedicated to the development and recognition of asset management as an integrated and important body of knowledge, in 2015.
The multidisciplinary organization provides global influence and thought-leadership on engineering asset management (EAM), a field at the intersection of technical issues of asset reliability, maintenance, safety, and asset performance with the requisite financial and managerial skills to achieve sustainable business outcomes.
“The field of engineering asset management encompasses many of the opportunities to improve the economics of nuclear power while maintaining our high safety standards,” said Coble. “ISEAM brings together experts developing and applying best practices in EAM across industries, giving the nuclear industry the opportunity to learn from and build on those successes.”
In addition to providing professional conferences, ISEAM is working to develop an industry journal while it liaises with national and international bodies to provide a global approach to Asset Management.
