Dubai eGovernment has deployed an Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) solution, to help manage maintenance and procurement of Dubai Municipality's Public Transport Department.

The EAM, which is integrated with Dubai's Government Resource Planning (GRP) system will monitor all processes relating to periodic and corrective maintenance, equipment and spare parts for the Municipality's fleet of 2,000 light and heavy vehicles. The EAM runs from data in a central database that helps in monitoring the extent of damages, estimating repair costs, optimizing preventive maintenance plans, upgrading asset management and planning and distributing available resources.

Ahmed Bin Humaidan, Director General of Dubai eGovernment, said: "The EAM system was implemented by the GRP Systems Department with the aim of carrying out the maintenance of vehicles and equipment and ensuring the supply of spare parts at the municipality. Its deployment is an important step for enhancing the effectiveness and productivity of the municipality's Public Transport Department. The new system provides the department with effective tools that will contribute to improving asset management and increasing profits by following the best preventive maintenance methods, ensuring optimal asset productivity, reducing costs and maintaining the sustainability of services.

Humaid Al-Marri, Director of Transportation Department at Dubai Municipality added: "We are implementing the EAM system in line with our focus on supporting Dubai's process of eTransformation as it will help automate and increase productivity of preventive maintenance and asset management and enables optimal planning of our existing resources. We are keen to continue our collaboration with Dubai e-Government to implement the second phase of the system and also adopt more systems that support our future plans to enhance the quality of services and basic infrastructure to strengthen Dubai's leading position in knowledge-based economy."
