One of the main functions of a municipality is controlling the Infrastructure within its borders.  This will include water, sewer, electricity, roads and stormwater.  IMIS-infra is the IMIS module that provides users a map-based solution for managing and capturing infrastructure data, fully compliant with GAMAP, GRAP 17, the DPLG Guidelines for Infrastructure Asset Management in Local Government, and the International Infrastructure Manual.

The module is composed of different sub-modules, each managing a separate infrastructure component or asset category, such as Roads, Electricity, Water, Storm Water and Sewer. It has links into other IMIS Modules and Functions, such as GIS, Land Management, Records and Document Management. It is strongly driven by Process Automation and Communication Management.

Components

IMIS-infra consists of the Water, Sewer, Electricity, Roads and Stormwater modules. 

Each component is then broken down into:

  1. Inventory
  2. Assessment Information
  3. Asset Register
  4. Specific Processes
  5. Application, eg. Water meter replacements, etc.
  6. Comments, Approval etc.

Functional Options

For all the components of IMIS-infra there are a variety of tools or functions which may be used. Roads and storm water are networks are not able to be linked to specific land parcels but may be located by physical location. Whereas electricity, water and sewer are able to be linked to properties, by being linked to properties, customers may make applications for modifications to the assets and reports can be generated containing all information in one view based on property.  These customer reports must be captured with IMIS-customer to ensure that the asset register is maintained.

Query

Locating asset information from the inventory is made easy by a search function. Users can search for a specific asset or for an asset category such as substations or for property linked asset may search using specific land parcel information. Upon locating the desired asset all the linked information will be available and displayed. This linked information will include location, condition, uses, description and value. The query function has been built so that with even the most minimal amount of correct information the desired asset may be located, this is to increase the ease of use, accuracy and speed with which decisions are made.

Manage

Assets may be added to the inventory upon completion of building and then the required pertinent information input. For property linked assets application for modifications may be lodged. Asset details may be updated as well as assessments modified to changes in asset condition, which is made easier with the use of IMIS-customer, as complaints/reports are linked to assets, a job card is generated tasking the repair which is only completed when changes, repairs, costs and all information relating to the job is logged and captured.  This ensures integrity of the asset register.

Report

Reports may be generated for asset populations or for specified groupings (location, class, type, condition, ect.). These reports fall under the general categories of reports namely discrepancies, inventory, asset register, assessments and progress reports. Under each category there are a variety of sub reports. Each category of reports may not be applicable to all asset sub modules of IMIS-infra and may not be available.

The reporting function will allow decision makers to generate the necessary and desired information into easy to understand and use reports. This will allow them to make the correct decisions with regards to budgets allocations and planning on maintaining and upgrading the infrastructure.  

Project Methodology

IMIS-Infra is designed for the Management of Infrastructure Assets, through the creation and maintenance of asset registers. These projects follow a specific process as there are a variety of spheres or factors which can be incorrectly completed and will undermine the entire operation. TGIS has extensive experience with these projects and has developed sound skills to manage the process to eliminate the majority of problems experienced.   TGIS are the cadastral experts and will provide extra value by using software and processes which link assets to land parcels and locations, as this allows for easy graphical representation which promotes understanding and issue conceptualization.
