Road and bridge agencies around the world need strategic approaches to network and asset management. The best solutions establish processes and enterprise-wide asset information systems that drive effective decisions.

With the challenge of maintaining an aging infrastructure with fewer resources, artificial intelligence can provide significant benefits. Using AI technology to perform the initial asset analysis can save time and resources, providing decision-makers with immersive real-world imagery and the capability for more in-depth analysis. Combined with emerging trends for risk prioritization and cross-asset prioritization, agencies can make the best decisions for public safety.

Join us for this webinar as we discuss how Bentley’s digital twin services and analytics tools provide a more strategic approach to asset management challenges. Learn how 4D digital twins of transportation networks deliver the foundation of a strong asset management practice that, when combined with time-based analytics, provides insight and accountability.

Learning opportunities will include:

  • How you can increase efficiency by accurately managing structured asset information across the entire lifecycle.
  • How you can enhance your strategic asset management plans through time-based analytics to improve service, safety, reliability, and decision-making.
  • How you can mitigate risk and comply with industry and environmental regulations with a digital twin.
