Clear information standards for how assets are described, and the locations where they reside, provide consistency in knowledge management and lay the foundation for efficient operations.

Asset Information Standards state what information should be recorded, how it should be processed and stored and define the way assets will be classified, named, related to each other and the attributes to be recorded for these assets. These standards are applied to support the acquisition and management of data and in the production of reports.

Although fairly stable over time, consistency issues can arise when different business functions capture what should be shared data in different ways. When you consider that a location could be identified as a physical street address, GPS coordinates, relative location descriptions or even a place code like what3words, the importance of consistent data standards becomes apparent.

Clarita helps asset system owners establish asset information standards defining how assets are described, the locations where they reside, their hierarchical relationship, the parameters used to measure their condition, usage patterns and risk profile. We help our clients: 

  • Establish standards to share data – naming conventions, mandatory fields
  •  Identify and adopt relevant industry standards, frameworks and reporting requirements such as ADAC, A-Spec & GDA2020
  • Document standards, specifications and template to facilitate third-party data sharing
  • Streamline ingestion of data on handover of new assets from contractors
    • Consistency

      Publish reference standards for all asset classes including hierarchies, classifications, attributes, domains and geometry types.

    • Set Requirements for Suppliers

      Published standards, specifications and templates are suitable for procurement to include in future asset construction tenders.

    • Efficiency

      The effort and time to create new assets and resolve gaps and inconsistencies in data capture is reduced.

    • Accuracy

      The asset register provides an accurate digital representation of assets in the real-world.
