  • 1.  AM planning software

    Question for asset managers in municipal government: What AM planning/decision support software do you use?


    Specifically, I'm curious about what you use to analyze your asset data and do lifecycle forecasting. The City of Ottawa is reviewing its own software and we would like to know what others are doing.


    Thanks in advance for your feedback!

    Hello Robert,

    Here at Infrastructure Ontario, we are currently using VFA Facility for scenario modeling and lifecycle planning. However, as of May 2025, we will be moving to the Enterprise Decision Analytics software by Arcadis.
