If you were able to design an asset management system from scratch what functionality would you build into it? I have asked myself this question before and come up with a short list of capabilities and listed them on the asset management system page. What have I missed? What are your main AMS must haves?
I am excited to say these are not just academic questions any more. I have been trying to encourage the development of an Open Source Local Government Software Suite for sometime now, and I have just found out that there is a bit of work going on in this area, including work on an open source asset management system.
If you have any AMS functionality suggestions please contribute them to this discussion or the asset management system page. If you do there is every chance that they will one day be a part of a free continuously improving open source software system used by a large number of local governments in Australia, and around the word. That's the dream please help out!
