The Asset Management Data Standard (AMDS) is a data standard that informs activity management decisions for transport so we can plan and implement activities which deliver services as expected for the cost expected. It is a common language that describes the service, impact, and asset lifecycle across the transport system.
The standard will create a structure that will ensure the consistency of collection of data. This will enable Road Controlling Authorities (RCAs), Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency and the transport sector to collect better quality data, helping them meet asset management goals.
Development of the standard and implementation approach is a joint collaboration between Waka Kotahi, RCAs, maintenance contractors and service consultants.
