The Asset Management Data Standard (AMDS) project is a collaborative project between the NZ Transport Agency and the Road Efficiency Group (REG) to improve the management of land transport infrastructure asset information, so we can make the best decisions about New Zealand’s land transport assets – our roads, highways, bridges, cycleways and what sits on and under them.
The project will develop and implement a national data standard for land transport assets. It will establish a common language the sector can share. A way of defining and describing land transport assets, their attributes, characteristics, properties, location and performance to enable efficient and effective end-to-end life cycle asset management.
Promoting greater data standardisation and sharing in land transport will realise significant benefits through improved efficiencies, network planning and resilience.
The AMDS project will prepare the foundations for the land transport sector to be able to work towards a digital engineering and BIM (Building Information Modeling) approach.
