The Asset Management SIG aims to enable to promote cross-sector networking, skills transfer, sharing best practices and lessons learnt within the following disciplines: Location Analytics, Mapping, Geospatial Information Management and Data Visualisation for Physical Asset Management.
The scope of the SIG takes the application of Asset Management beyond Utilities and Telecoms. This allows common themes, working regimes and enabling technologies to be shared across a range of sectors including Rail, Highways, Utilities, Power and Telecoms.
We reconise that asset management is a cross discipline subject, taking in both geospatial, data, information systems and information technology skills. The SIG is interested in the cross-over of these skills within organisations. Examples of common activities where Geospatial and Location Solutions are central are: Asset Management Systems (AMS)-GIS integration, Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP)-GIS integration, Master Data Management (MDM), Mobility and asset tracking. If you are a GIS Professional, why not invite your IT / IS colleagues to one of our events!
Themes / activities
Current Asset Management SIG themes include operational awareness, maintenance planning, logistics, improving operational efficiencies, facility management and works management.
Special Interest Groups (SIGs) are only as good as the input from their members. We need you help to drive this SIG. So, if you use or manage Geographic Information Systems (GIS), web and mobile mapping or geospatial information for any of the following topics and sectors, below, then get involved!
