Area C – Store, Integrate, and Access Data

Area C – Store, Integrate, and Access Data

Structuring, integrating and providing access to data to support TAM operations, management and reporting needs.

Improvements in this Area are aimed at managing asset data in an efficient manner and integrating data across systems supporting different assets and different asset life-cycle phases and agency business processes.

Making data available across the enterprise while eliminating redundant information is critical to driving efficiency and reliability.

Moving from paper-based data to fully integrated databases requires planning and critical thinking about how and where data will be stored, and how different databases will be linked to each other.

Asset Life-Cycle Data Integration Workflows

Through technology advancement, it is now possible for data to persist across the asset life cycle – from planning through to design and delivery and ultimately through to operations and maintenance.

Integrating workflows between phases of the asset life cycle is critical to unlocking the value that is amassed through these phases.

Case Study
Mobile LiDAR and BIM/CADD Integration
Utah DOT

This project exemplifies the value of leveraging asset inventory and condition data into the project delivery phase. This project also shows that investments in one asset life-cycle stage can pay dividends in another, the additional returns on investment by looking at the larger life cycle viewpoint can be considered to aid justification of new data and digitalization projects.

This case study demonstrates how a specific DOT could advance this element from practice level 3 to practice level 4, by implementing improvements for asset life-cycle data transfers automation.
