The maintenance of physical assets is indispensable for sustainable competitiveness. The discipline of Asset Life Cycle Management (ALCM) shows that assets should be managed in a multidisciplinary way over their complete life cycle. This paper asks how these assets can be managed effectively. The concept of management control is used to develop a conceptual model for ALCM control. This model has guided our case study of ALCM in practice. We conclude that the model allows us to gain a deeper insight in ALCM control and to identify the limits to control faced by an asset manager
