Improving Government Infrastructure

Maintaining government infrastructure refers to the maintenance planning and care of physical assets that governments (Federal, State and Local) have such as roads, facilities, water utilities, wastewater, power and communications. These assets vary in size and complexity but they essentially provide the physical framework that enable government services to be provided. The opportunity for infrastructure managers is finding a way to lengthen the useful life cycle of aging assets while minimizing maintenance costs. This is especially difficult during the tough economic times we live in today. Fortunately, EAM CMMS software solutions can provide much needed tools to help asset and maintenance management obtain the most from their resources.

EAM CMMS Infrastructure Solutions

Government infrastructure managers utilizing an EAM CMMS solution enjoys many benefits ranging from reduced paper flow to lower labor and energy costs. An EAM CMMS will also organize maintenance operations as well as streamline work management through automation and proactive scheduling. More importantly, EAM CMMS software enables asset and maintenance managers to always know the condition of their assets at any point in time. This information is critical for planning infrastructure maintenance because the EAM CMMS will help to identify assets needing repair or replacement before emergency repair funding is needed.
