Lee County Utilities (LCU) began implementing a comprehensive asset management program in 2008 to improve the management of their over $700 million dollars worth of assets. One of the original program drivers and initiatives was to implement a new CMMS system that would successfully perform work and asset management for all of their plant and pipe assets with centralized information about assets available to all employees. During the first phase of the asset management program the program basic methodologies were established including asset hierarchy and definitions, methodologies for evaluating asset condition, criticality, risk, useful life and replacement costs. An example of the plant asset management hierarchy established is shown in Figure 1. This process based hierarchy supports reporting and cost roll-ups as well as the assignment of condition, criticality and risk data. Most importantly it allows for an easy search to find assets to assign work orders to.
