One of the key elements of digital manufacturing focuses on asset performance management (APM). The primary objective of Asset Performance Management (APM) is to help organizations increase their asset efficiency, manage assets sustainability, improve customer centricity, and optimize the total cost of ownership.

To improve asset performance, Capgemini recommends an Asset Performance Management Maturity Model approach. The Asset Performance Management Maturity Model approach involves continuous benchmarking that helps organizations determine their present state, compare it with industry peers, recognize improvement areas, and identify opportunities and risks associated with their assets.
