Abstract:Ports are important transport hubs in transport networks. Ports are important for the economy of a region or country. It delivers many employment facilities, it attracts companies because of an interesting location, it is the connection between the sea and land, etc. Ports are of inestimable (economic) value for a country. It is important to maintain ports in an optimal way. Iter Fidelis is a company engaged in risk‐based asset management at, among other things, ports. Asset lifecycle management means the management of the total life cycle of all assets, which supports the business processes of a company. Iter Fidelis does this based on risks. Iter Fidelis uses a method to map and prioritize risks, which is developed by Oxand in France. Iter Fidelis wants to know how their asset management method performs, and if there is optimization potential in their method. The focus is on investigating methods for mapping and prioritizing risks, based on literature. The method of Iter Fidelis and a Failure Mode and Criticality Analysis (FMECA) are two examples of this. The objective of this research is to investigate how the method of Iter Fidelis stands opposite from FMECA by investigating possibilities and chances for optimizing the method of Iter Fidelis in order to deliver recommendations to optimize this method. To meet the objective, the following questions are answered in this research: The central question of this research is:  Which recommendations can be made to optimize the method of Iter Fidelis?
