Infrastructure Asset Management, Transportation Asset Management, Street Asset Management, Roadway Asset Management … these are all keywords that Public Works departments are searching to find the best tools that can organize information on their centerline miles and ROW assets. The best tools for the best price, that is.
Cost can be a prohibiting factor for teams that want to make the digital transformation but find it difficult to receive funding for administrative improvements. Without new tools, the cost of labor to increase your team size to cover the tasks that need to be done is considerable and you’re often left to work with the team you have. Luckily, the cost of new software that doubles and triples the productivity of your current team is a tiny fraction of your budget.
Below are a few factors to consider for new roadway asset management platforms
The need to have a visual understanding with historical knowledge at your fingertips is essential. A proper Asset Management solution to make use and display the data is critical. Standard asset management requirements must include:
The essential criteria above will impact the growth and future funding capability of that community. But there is still the need to have deeper analytic capability to truly understand the family of assets and their attributes in order to be able to assess and make intelligent decision making for the benefit of the organization.
All of the road and ROW asset domains (curbs, trees, signs, etc.) are in one visually centralized dashboard that provides both management and crews access to their inventory of total assets and a complete lifecycle aspect. Data can be collected and stored via a 360’ camera, then displayed to provide a prioritized daily work order list with long-term future projects, as well as a clear picture of the departments daily work in progress.
