Capital Planning and Asset Management
Proactive Planning and Management of Infrastructure
What is Asset Management?
Utilities have seen many changes that have driven increasing capital, operation, and maintenance costs in recent history. Among these changes are the continued aging of infrastructure installed over the last century and heightened regulatory requirements associated with the implementation of the Clean Water Act and the Safe Drinking Water Act.
The focus of Asset Management is to take the necessary steps to retain the benefits and service levels of existing assets through repair, rehabilitation, and/or replacement on a preventative/proactive basis, as opposed to making new investments on a reactive basis.
AE2S OptX can be a powerful tool to help you combine asset management and capital planning.
