A complete asset inventory and accurate condition assessment are the foundation of developing a comprehensive asset management program.
NEXGEN AM’s Assets Module includes asset inventory, condition assessment and inspection. Unlike many Computer Maintenance Management Systems (CMMS) that are either specific to non linear or linear assets, NEXGEN AM’s asset inventory has a structured asset hierarchy that serves both types of assets effectively. Non linear assets (equipment, area, structure and vehicle) are grouped by location or class and can be rolled up to the highest level or drilled down to lowest level. Linear assets (i.e. pipes, roads, and telecommunications) can be sorted by connectivity and graphically displayed through Geographic Information System (GIS). The ability to query assets and create work orders through asset inventory hierarchy or GIS provides the flexibility of NEXGEN AM’s asset inventory module. Assets can easily be rolled up for summary reports based on location or class.
The type of information collected in NEXGEN AM’s asset inventory module can be customized for the following asset classes:
Area – (i.e. parks, drainage, reservoir)
Equipment – (i.e. pumps, computer, motor, furniture)
Linear – (i.e. pipes, roads, cables, telecommunications)
Structure – (i.e. buildings, bridge, tanks)
Vehicle – (i.e. cars, trucks, planes)
NEXGEN AM automatically assigns an Asset Condition Index (ACI) to consistently rate conditions for analysis based on age in the absence of field condition assessments. ACI ratings from 1 to 5 allow users to capture and interpret conditions consistently.
NEXGEN AM’s inspection module supports routine asset inspections. Customizable inspection templates can be created for specific types of inspections. NEXGEN AM has developed a Sanitary Sewer Overflow inspection template that complies with the regulatory reporting requirements.
