A complete asset inventory is the foundation to developing a comprehensive asset management program.
Unlike many Computerized Maintenance Management Systems (CMMS) that are specific to either non-linear or linear assets, NEXGEN Asset Management has a structured asset hierarchy that serves both types of assets effectively. Non-linear assets (equipment, area, structure, vehicle, etc.) are grouped by location and class, organized in customizable tree structures. Linear assets (pipes, roads, telecommunications lines, etc.) are sorted by connectivity. Both types of assets are graphically displayed through the Geographic Information System (GIS).
