Asset Managers: Take Control of Your Job

Is your job controlling you? With the overwhelming work it takes to keep up with operating and maintaining your transportation infrastructure, it’s easy to feel like you’re not in the driver’s seat. But it doesn’t have to be that way.  

The Problem

You may be tempted to think that the problem is the size of the job. It’s true, asset management is complex, challenging and not for the faint of heart. But often the problem lies with the tools and systems you have in place to do the job. If you don’t have a comprehensive approach that integrates data-collection technology with systematic planning and management, you’ll be stuck reacting to crisis after crisis.

Another important aspect of efficient workflow is data integration. Without proper integration your tools can’t talk with each other, leaving you with data that’s hard to interpret. Working with unusable data makes executing a proactive management plan impossible. You might face:

  • Being unsure of which skilled workers you need to complete a job
  • Difficulty understanding the location of the task
  • Not knowing what equipment is required for the work at hand
  • Contractors who are unable to do their work efficiently and on time

Add to that the ever-growing skill gap between retiring employees and new hires and it can seem impossible to ever get control of maintaining and operating your transportation infrastructure.
