At a fundamental level, asset management involves understanding an agency’s assets, the level of performance expected of those assets, and the relationship between performance and the funding needed to operate and maintain the assets. A solid understanding of these relationships helps agencies determine the best strategy for investing in their asset network. The training starts with a discussion on the benefits of an asset management plan and wraps up identifying performance measures of an asset management plan. This 1 Day Online Hybrid class introduces asset and data management guiding principles and key components of a transportation asset management plan.
Module 1: Asset Management Plan Applications in Transportation Agencies
Module 2: Creating a Transportation Asset Management Plan (TAMP)
