Seven steps for CapEx Planning

  1. Implement a Systems Based Continuous Process
  2. Support your continuous process standards that help bring consistency
  3. Focus on Data Integrity and design your system so that data resides in the appropriate system
  4. Choose a system and process that provides transparency across linked systems
  5. Look at the long-term view so the system captures all projects
  6. Make sure your system supports the review and approval process required by Ownership
  7. The CapEx system and process should support portfolio-level planning by both Ownership and the Management Company
