On the Busway project, asset data plays a key role in predicting the end of life timeframes for key assets.
As the original maintenance provider for the busways network, UGL has managed and developed the asset database from the existing small base of assets, to what we look after today totalling more than 9000 individual assets. In line with this growth, UGL has developed and deployed an asset database to support the service delivery. Key features of the database include: automated work order generation, streamlining of operational processes, timely and accurate communications between Translink, TMR, UGL and sub-contractors.
The database developed by UGL provides the TMR with a predictive process schedule replacements or servicing of key assets to minimise disruptions to services.
At any point in time UGL and the TMR can determine exactly how many assets are in good working order and how many are out of service requiring investigation.
