Andy Marson, a Senior Engineer at Green Signals Consulting, will be presenting an article at the JCT Symposium at Warwick University on 19th and 20th September 2013. Affectionately entitled “Triggers Broom”, his presentation will provide an insight into guidance documentation available for Asset Management of Intelligent Transport Systems.
Within the ITS industry, this important subject has so often been overlooked, with investment in the network being hampered by significant funding restrictions by cash strapped Councils. In 2011, the Department for Transport (DfT), launched a new Code of Practice entitled the Management of Electronic Traffic Equipment, which Andy , Green Signals Senior Engineer Dave Moore and Green Signals Director, Stuart Ohrland had a significant involvement in writing. The Code provides important recommendations for local authorities, for the implementation of management systems and day to operations.
With budget limitations continuing to bite, Andy’s presentation discusses asset management standards PAS55 -‘Optimal Management of Physical Assets’, the new ISO 55000 standard and will provide further guidance to local authorities on how to optimise performance from their ITS infrastructure in order to avoid the potholes and pitfalls suffered by various other Government departments following the lack of a proper Asset Management regime.
