THE SUCCESS of any enterprise involves the effective management of three resources: people, money, and property. The third resource, property, is the least well-managed of the three. The new ASTM Main Committee E53 on Property Management Systems intends to remedy this situation by standardizing aspects of property management.

A SPECIAL FEATURE section this month describes the need for standards in this field, which is critical to both public- and private-sector enterprises.
