From our perspective asset management is all about identifying your system’s assets, knowing exactly where they are located and knowing the current condition of those assets so that we can properly operate, maintain, and replace them in a timely manner.
LSPS Solutions, LLC provides a variety of asset management tools that will identify your system’s assets, collect location and other important data about those assets, and then make that information readily available in a variety of formats so that it can be used for planning activities.
These electronic O&M Manuals are constructed using .html programming so that they can be accessed using your computer’ s internet browser; so, no expensive, third-party software is required. The manuals typically contain information about the asset, photos, pump curves, links to construction drawings, links to submittal data, maintenance and troubleshooting information.
Upon completion of the field inspections, we gather and record any additional information that is readily available for each of the specific equipment components, i.e. pump curves, manufacturers brochures, etc. and export all the pertinent data from the GIS file into an Excel spreadsheet.
The data collected and established during the process is then recorded and assimilated into a report. The report is designed to be an administrative tool for the City Council and staff to use when making decisions about street rehabilitation and repair and the funding of these projects.
In order to effectively communicate the results of the pavement assessment, the data is sorted and displayed in a variety of formats.
Fortunately, this is one of the asset management tools that LSPS Solutions, LLC specializes in. We can prepare a sign inventory for your city and provide you with a Google Earth .kmz file with precise locations (sub-meter accuracy) of all signs and a list of attributes for each of the signs including photos and a condition value. In addition to the Google Earth file, you would receive a GIS shape file with the same precise locations of all the signs and a data dictionary that includes all of the relative data about those signs and an Excel spreadsheet with all of the information about the signs that will enable you to sort the data and, thereby create a plan for ongoing sign replacement.

“LSPS Solutions has provided multiple services for the City of Victoria. One of the first projects involved completing the City’s Risk and Resiliency Plan for the City’s water system. The plan not only gives the City a synopsis of current operations, but also provides a tool in which we can develop emergency planning. They have also completed an electronic operations and maintenance manual for the City’s Odem Street Wastewater Plant. The City has plans to move forward with LSPS Solutions for the remaining O&M manuals at the Surface Water Treatment Plant and other wastewater facilities. With eO&M manuals, the City can move forward with the next step, being a comprehensive maintenance/replacement schedule for all the major water and wastewater facilities.”
