State-of-Practice Review of Infrastructure Asset Management Systems


Attend this workshop and Earn .7 CEUs!

The maintenance, rehabilitation, and replacement of aging municipal infrastructure is an issue of strategic importance because it has strong social, environmental, and economic implications. Over the past 10 years asset management systems have been evolving rapidly as cities across North America are faced with ever increasing legislative and regulatory requirements to develop and implement effective asset management systems. The objective of this workshop is to review the evolution of asset management practices in Canada and the USA and to provide an overview of some of the most commonly used municipal infrastructure asset management tools. Presentations will discuss the benefits and limitations of various approaches for the development and implementation of asset management systems. 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.
