Sanborn’s asset inventory services provide an efficient approach to the collection, organization and integration of client infrastructure. Sanborn’s systematic geospatial process for asset inventory is the baseline input or updated data required for an Asset Management System. The relationship between Asset Management and geospatial asset inventory ensures a coordinated approach to optimize costs and risks for system sustainability with the focus on providing intelligent and actionable information to support maintenance and management decisions.
Sanborn’s approach to asset inventory mapping provides the ability to add attribution to the feature providing intelligence to the overall asset inventory database. Information such as dimensions, type, condition, location and relationship are just some of the many potential valuable attributes. This information can aid in providing intelligence for analytical modeling and asset condition assessment in support of life cycle maintenance. In many cases, infrastructure asset characteristics can be identified during Sanborn’s asset inventory and attributed to the asset as it is collected including photographs of the visible feature. The benefit of such an approach allows the client to extend the life of the asset and to ensure an asset failure doesn’t cause a security or safety risk. This approach allows the client to quickly locate asset information for effective decision-making, reduces downtime for asset replacement and supports a constant database of information that is not reliant on human institutional knowledge where retirement of staff affects organizations.
