 Talk Description

In conjunction with the Asset Management team at Auckland Transport (AT), Beca developed a database health index to assess confidence levels within the AT RAMM database.  The index enables AT to identify strengths and weaknesses in their database, prioritise improvements and track corresponding database changes.  It gives AT a comprehensive understanding of their asset database health in an simple one page visual based report.  This results in improved value for money in setting database improvement programmes and improved decision making and analysis through better understanding of available data.
