The outcome of unmanaged civil infrastructure--whether horizontal (Highways), vertical (Skyscrapers), or anything in between--is an ever-increasing sense of chaos that results in degradation of infrastructure and its value.

So, how do you keep chaos at bay and improve outcomes for infrastructure longevity and the value it delivers to its stakeholders (service providers and their customers)?

The first step for many has been the implementation of an asset management system that incorporates the lifecycle needs of infrastructure and its owners and users.

Once a system is in place, one of the components that is often neglected happens to be the one that adds intelligence to assets for better outcomes across their lifespan.
