Abstract
Transit Agency Information required for managing Service centers on resources and assets that need to be available to operate the transit service as designed. An opportunity exists to design an Integrated Framework providing Service delivery and Maintenance Management Information to quantify the reliability and availability of the assets. This framework will incorporate modeling of the asset inventory to align with financial accounting structures and will support a more comprehensive understanding of the operational and financial performance of the assets. Encada will provide designs for: i. Prototype hierarchical structures for each typical transit Primary asset with attribution elements to support asset management and SGR decisions. The structure allows aggregation of management information to asset and service levels under consideration. This will also include procedures and tools to inventory and tag Primary assets and to populate asset hierarchies. ii. Basic CMMS design addressing core needs for the majority of medium to small Transit agencies. iii. Incident management system linking service disruptions to the CMMS allowing the influence on service reliability and availability to be linked to the asset and failed components.
