Transit Asset Management (TAM) Planning
Georgia Regional Transportation Authority (GRTA) – Transit Asset Management Plan
GRTA wanted implement an Asset Management solution that utilized the industry best practices approach as advocated by the Institute of Asset Management (IAM) and promoted through the International Standards Organization (ISO) 55000 suite of asset management standards. However, the agency did not have the robust data set or analytical tools to support the most efficient path to this level of asset management maturity. Niti founder, Jignesh Patel supported GRTA with an EAM system implementation to ensure that Long Term goals of the agency were met by this solution. For this project, he performed an assessment of the Transit Asset Management (TAM) needs, Data Collection, Asset Hierarchy definition, Data Entry, State of Good Repair (SGR) creation, and ISO 55000 Draft International Standards for Asset Management. Subsequent to that the we helped the agency implement a TAM solution along with the SGR database.
