Technology Ecosystem Connects Data Across the Asset Lifecycle for More Efficient Maintenance, Informed Decision-Making and Lower Lifetime Costs
WESTMINSTER, Colo., Jan. 10, 2023—Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) announced today that Norwegian Public Roads Administration (NPRA) Operations and Maintenance has selected Trimble’s AgileAssetsⓇ infrastructure enterprise asset management software to manage, maintain and operate the country’s 10,600-km road network and associated transportation infrastructure. The selected software complements Trimble’s QuadriⓇ software, a cloud-based Building Information Modeling (BIM) collaboration solution that NPRA already uses for construction projects. As Norway’s road network becomes increasingly complex, the powerful combination of Trimble’s Quadri and AgileAssets will enable NPRA to meet growing demands by leveraging connected data to improve performance throughout the entire asset lifecycle, from design and construction to operations and maintenance.
"Taking care of the existing infrastructure is one of the most important aspects of the work we can do on behalf of the community and for the climate. This is a milestone for systems supporting us in doing that; enabling us to prioritize the right maintenance at the right time, for the benefit of our customers and society, and to make optimal use of funds," said divisional director Bjørn Laksforsmo. "We have high expectations for the positive effects on mobility, safety and sustainability we will be able to provide by working in close cooperation with Trimble as a provider of asset management solutions."
NPRA’s asset lifecycle management approach began with the requirement that all new projects use constructible models and a common data environment. NPRA began using Trimble’s Quadri, which provides both constructible models and an object-based common data environment, to streamline the flow of real-time data across project stakeholders. Extending that data to the maintenance and operations phase with Trimble’s AgileAssets will give NPRA a holistic view of assets and a better understanding of road objects and conditions for easier diagnosis and faster resolution of maintenance issues. The combination of Trimble’s common data environment and asset management software will also improve the usefulness and fidelity of data throughout the asset lifecycle, driving greater predictability, sustainability and lower lifetime costs, as well as informing decisions about future expansions and improvements.
“Delivering safe, cost-effective and sustainable transportation infrastructure increasingly depends on closing the data gap between construction, maintenance and operations,” said Shelly Nooner, vice president of Innovation and Platform in Trimble’s Owner and Public Sector. “Today, design data is as important during maintenance as it is during construction. As infrastructure needs increase in size and complexity, and data continues to accumulate through an asset’s lifecycle, the ability to share, analyze and build on that data at every stage will be transformative. NPRA has been a pacesetter in digital adoption and serves as a model for other agencies looking to improve performance, cost-effectiveness and sustainability through asset lifecycle management.”
