Financial Life Cycle Analysis
by Jeff Diamond and Andre Boissonnault, R.V. Anderson Associates Limited
A PSAB approach can be used as long term planning tool with this gathered data. This has proved especially useful for linear assets with relatively long life expectancies, particularly water and sewer main, both representing a very large dollar value in any municipality. Estimated replacement dates are based on the year of acquisition and the predetermined life expectancy, and reproduction costs are based on PSAB reporting values.
