“Providing full service, turn-key Asset Information Management Solutions to smaller water, wastewater and stormwater organizations that do not have the resources to effectively manage data in-house”
AIMS Team Provides Water Utility Asset Information Management Plans
The AIMS Team provides services in Utility Asset Management Plans and more specifically, Water Utility Asset Management Plans. We specialize in providing niche services related to asset management of physical assets in the water and wastewater industry. Our clients are mainly small and medium-sized special purpose districts and public works departments that do not have significant in-house resources to adequately address asset and information management needs. AIMS Team employees serve in most cases as an extension to our clients’ administrative and operations staff, both in the data handling of day-to-day maintenance activities, as well as in the longer-term efforts of asset management planning.
Key Skill Sets for Asset Information Management Services
The AIMS Team has a unique combination of skills both in the 1) development, application and documentation of the core Asset Management principles as defined per the United States Environmental Protection Agency, including asset inventory and hierarchy, asset lifecycle planning, risk management, asset valuation and management strategies, and 2) configuration and integration of relevant data systems that allows access to data, analytical tools and reporting functionality. Meaning, we generally perform tasks that includes all aspects of asset information management, including systems integration, data mining, data population, asset lifecycle modeling and the preparation of an actual Asset Management Plan document.
An asset management program will only work if it is permeated throughout the organization and integrated in the day-to-day operations. This is what the AIMS Team can help set up.
While the AIMS Team maintains only a small number of staff, all primary staff maintain a full stack of applicable skills, including project management, applications development, database administration, Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and general water utility knowledge related to asset maintenance, lifecycle and risk management.
