Research

Andreas’ main research interests are in the area of infrastructure (asset) management and he has developed this line of research at the Department of Civil Engineering at the University of Twente. In his research Andreas focuses on the interplay of the social, technical and environmental aspects in providing and managing modern infrastructure assets and aims at developing new methods and models for optimized decision making throughout the lifecycle of infrastructure assets. His research adopts an integrative approach which brings together ideas from technical, organizational and social science to better understand the dynamic and complex character of infrastructure provision and management. Topics that Andreas addresses within this line of research include:  

  • maintenance management,
  • performance measurement,
  • procurement strategies,
  • monitoring strategies,
  • life cycle management,
  • asset management implementation,
  • partnering and learning.

Projects

In 2012 Andreas established The Programme of Infrastructure Management Excellence (PrIME) at the University of Twente. Through PrIME all research activities in the area of infrastructure (asset) management are structured, coordinated and presented to the outside world. Research projects that has been conducted within the programme include:
