First Nation communities have access to a wealth of information related to their infrastructure and are looking to utilizing this information to improve how they manage their assets. Proper data management and planning tools are a strategic approcach for managing asset inventories, condition and maintenance, and used to supports current & future costs & needs of community infrastructure.
Effective data management and improvement requires:
Infrastructure data for all asset types to be stored in a s ingle database
A single database where the inter-dependency of one asset type with another asset type can be established
A single database that is capable of being shared community wide
A single database that is built using a standard set of definitions to collect data on the attributes for each asset type so that standardized data can be shared with other departments and
A single database that can integrate with global information software, work management tools and other 3rd party software tools
Using a Tribal Council example software system and data management best practices, this presentation will demonstrate how valuable First Nations data can be used to effectively manage, maintain and plan community infrastructure assets.
