AUTHORS: Dave Kealey, CDM Smith

ABSTRACT: Asset management programs are becoming essential to how local government, public works, utilities, infrastructure and facilities organizations measure and monitor their operations while providing better service to their customers. These organizations are realizing their assets' locations are critical business information that can reveal the spatial context of their work and generate enhanced analysis and forecasting capabilities. GIS is great fit for the role of enabling location within asset management (AM), but there are many factors to consider when developing the GIS component. We will cover essential guidelines to planning for a GIS-based AM program, including: setting up a new GIS for AM, upgrading an existing GIS to conform with AM systems, bootstrapping a new asset inventory from GIS, and continuing to support legacy applications while moving forward into asset management. Finally, we will review key factors for success while looking at the geospatial intelligence and other benefits that can be unlocked from this methodology.
