Assets & Optimisations
Access to accurate detailed information on large asset bases is key to make business-critical decisions that optimise maintenance and capital investments. Asset Investment Manager (AIM) gives you the knowledge you need to manage your assets now and into the future, helping predict the effect different decisions would make. By turning business problems into mathematical models, AIM can try out trillions of possibilities to find the optimal solution. The result is better business decision-making that take less time to make and that generate significant savings.
Our SMF sits at the heart of our best practice asset management approaches, helping put a value to risk of service, and a value derived from the service. This industry-proven model provides a consistent and transparent method to compare assets directly across your business, to enable effective investment decisions.
Risk Maps can be fully configurable by you and are designed to help articulate and visualise risk, service and value at any level in the asset hierarchy, now and in the future. They are easy to build and amend and allow for a transparent, collaborative and auditable approach to optimising investments. They can combine asset deterioration and service impact relationships, and intervention costs and benefits in a graphical representation that can be easily communicated to stakeholders.
Predictive analytics allow you to understand what your asset base will potentially look like in the future, estimating future asset failure and deterioration rates. Applying this powerful scenario modelling you can determine the optimal intervention dates for every unique asset, based on age, condition, degradation, risk of failure and cost of maintaining or replacing.
AIM can define, optimise and analyse investment scenarios based on millions of assets quickly, achieving a high level of granularity than was previously possible. This enables you to get real value from data, creating models to identify optimal investment levels. Using our modelling tools, you can clearly visualise and communicate your value framework to all stakeholders, so that they understand how and why decisions are made. As your business environment changes, the value framework can be quickly updated to align to your new priorities.
With AIM you can track important data and gain real-time insights, with customisable reporting models. You can compare scenarios and drill down into more detail using our flexible and interactive data graphs and tables. We also offer Interactive GIS Maps where you can group your assets by attribute, intervention or time. AIM can be integrated seamlessly with any third-party software system that can consume web services.
The world is changing at an unprecedented pace, which is making the task of predicting and planning increasingly complex for utilities, municipalities and local authorities. Ageing infrastructure, increasing regulations, tighter budgets, climate instability and stakeholders’ constantly changing needs are all contributing. Asset Investment Manager (AIM) offers powerful new analysis capabilities to give you the knowledge you need to avoid service failures, extend asset life and make better investment and maintenance decisions.
