55 Corporate Asset Management Plan CCoorrppoorraattee AAsssseett MMaannaaggeemmeenntt PPllaann 7.3 Asset Management Information System Improvements Asset management information systems are defined as the systems to support asset management process and manipulate the data. This includes the following asset management functions: Asset registers; Financial system; Maintenance management system; Condition monitoring; Capital works programming; As constructed plans; Geographical Information systems; and Advanced applications e.g. deterioration modelling. Such systems may replicate and/or automate the asset management processes. Weaknesses in the current asset management information systems will be identified in the sub-plans.
