LAC, in conjunction with the Maintenance Superintendents Association (MSA), performed a day long training session on maintenance system functions and applications. Topics included:
-Asset Management vs. Maintenance Management
The differences between asset management and maintenance management were discussed with clear costs and benefits for both. The various components of each system type were reviewed with a focus on maintenance management and it's practical applications. An ideal software selection process was also reviewed. Demonstrations of several computer systems were given with case studies for a utility agency, medium-sized city, and a large county.
