Integrating CAD and GIS for Infrastructure Asset Management.  The principal goal of asset management (AM) is to meet a required level of service in the most cost-effective way. AM processes are often characterized by high diversity of involved stakeholders, each with their own interests, tools and workflows - often non-interoperable. Furthermore, hurdles to effective AM includes data silos and diversity of data types used for asset life cycle analysis.  This results in data intensive, complex AM processes and costly, inefficient information management throughout the life cycle of assets. The key elements for effective infrastructure asset management include taking a lifecycle approach and monitoring performance to understand and manage risks associated with asset failures.  This can be accomplished through a Decision Support System (DSS) that integrate Computer Aided Drafting (CAD) and Geographic Information System (GIS) technologies. The aim of this paper is demonstrate a means of reducing some AM complexities by integrating CAD and GIS technologies on a pilot project of a water distribution system for the City of Newark NJ.
