Asset Management Data Standard


The Asset Management Data Standard (AMDS) is a collaboration between Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency, The Road Efficiency Group (REG) and the transport sector to improve the management of land transport infrastructure asset information that supports best decisions about New Zealand’s land transport assets.

AMDS is a data standard that informs activity management decisions for transport so we can plan and implement activities which deliver services as expected for the cost expected. It is a common language that describes the service, impact and asset lifecycle across the transport system and partners.

“The standard is one of the key tools to keep driving efficiencies into the system to maintain safety and resilience and the right level of maintenance and renewals With networks getting bigger and more complicated, AMDS is one of the fundamental building blocks to do our job properly”


The standard will prepare the foundations for the land transport sector to work towards a digital engineering and BIM (Building Information Modelling) approach.
