Asset Health Management (AHM) is a new type of utilities analytics.
AHM uses non-operational data to track the health of assets and do condition base management (CBM) instead of predictive device maintenance (PDM) to make sure that the utilities are optimizing operations and maintenance expenses.The AHM approach helps drive the performance of the individual assets such as high-voltage breakers, transformers and other types of grid instruments and devices to provide better reliability.

The AHM approach is based on the assumption that if equipment is analyzed in real-time and yet still remain in service then the overall cost of maintenance will go down. Moreover, AHM approach is dependent on the equipment leveraging:
The condition based maintenance (CBM process requires technologies, people skills, and communication (IEC61850 w. goose messaging) to integrate all available equipment condition data, such as
to make timely decisions about the maintenance requirements of major/critical equipment.
Condition-Based Maintenance (CBM) is continuously collected and analyzed in real-time. Moreover, the effectiveness of CBM is dependent on sensors being connected to the network (AMI); upside is less expensive than manual efforts, less prone to errors, and real-time monitoring of equipment condition data.
