This paper seeks to address Information Technology (IT) problems that emerge when developing an overall asset management system for high volume assets and to identify their unique characteristics. These IT problems include asset identification, asset location, data availability, data fragmentation, automated data collection, software selection, and system size and resources. A discussion of the issues related to these problems is presented herein to facilitate the development of more comprehensive systems to manage the automation of infrastructure Asset Management Systems (AMS).
