results to be achieved
The objective can be strategic or operational; it can relate to different disciplines such as financial, health and safety, or environmental.
The targeted results can be strategic, organisation or, project-wide, or relate to a product or process
The intended outcome can be expressed as a purpose, an operational principle, or asset management goal (process improvement)
In the context of asset management systems, the organisation goal should be consistent with the organisational objectives, clearly defined in the asset management policy so its intended function can be measured and analysed.
