This book has been written by EURENSEAM members, an European network for strategic engineering asset management. In this chapter we introduce the structure and the aim of our book. As the asset life cycle is key to engineering asset management, the asset life cycle serves as the backbone of the book. We illustrate the state of the art regarding engineering asset management from this life cycle perspective and have organized the book accordingly.
