State-of-Practice: Review of Infrastructure Asset Management Systems


Over the past 10 years Asset Management tools have been evolving rapidly as cities across North America are faced with ever increasing expenditures to repair, replace and manage aging municipal infrastructure. To assist in the multifaceted decision making process for capital investments and resource allocation, many cities have adopted various technology and software systems and some have developed their own custom integrated processes to fulfill asset management plans. The objective of this workshop is to review the evolution of Asset Management, practices, technologies and software in Canada and to provide an overview of some of the most commonly used municipal infrastructure asset management tools available. Presentations will review the pros and cons of each and discuss the various aspects of technologies including costs, vendor services/support, specialization, inputs, maintenance, asset inventory, GIS mapping, condition assessment, risk management, etc. The workshop will wrap up with an expert panel to discuss challenges and opportunities and where the future of asset management technology and software is headed.
