Enterprise Asset Management Solution & ISO 55000: Is your cart in front of your horse?

Watch On Demand

Some municipalities consider implementing an enterprise asset management (EAM) software package to be the same thing as performing asset management. But are they really one and the same?

Up-front asset management planning is necessary to fully leverage an EAM system and establish a successful asset management program. One of the many definitions of asset management is the structured transition from simply maintaining assets to managing their entire life cycles. Asset management requires a shift in focus from ensuring an asset’s function to determining if it is performing at a stated level of service, within an acceptable risk tolerance and with an affordable life cycle cost.

In this presentation, Shiv Iyer will discuss how to:

  • Shift focus from asset maintenance to asset life cycle management
  • Successfully implement an asset management program
  • Develop a program roadmap for ongoing success

Asset Data Maintenance: Is your cart in front of your horse? Part 2

Watch On Demand

In this webinar, Project Managers Jeff Pesler and Christina Martinez will discuss a critical–but often overlooked–component of asset management projects: asset data. With almost 40 years of combined experience, both as project owners and consultants, Jeff and Christina have discovered that neglecting asset data, whether people, processes or technology, leads to struggling asset management programs. Conversely, shining a light on asset data often results in better-quality asset management projects and more comprehensive programs.

Disparate Doesn’t Have to Mean Separate

Registration Coming Soon.

Municipalities and utilities collect and maintain a wide variety of asset and operational data, much of which exists in silos, never to see the light of day—much less be used to support organizational missions. Enterprise systems from companies such as Esri, Cityworks and OSIsoft offer easy integration, making it simple to merge disparate data streams into holistic views of asset conditions and operational health. In this webinar, Woolpert Program Director for GIS Solutions Frank Orr will discuss and demonstrate various integration methodologies that enable operations and asset managers to respond efficiently to changing conditions, both in facilities and across networks.
