Linear Assets

Non linear Assets


Mobile (fleet, vehicles) Fixed Physical Assets (facilities) Component-based Assets (aircraft, ship) Installed, maintained, replaced as a whole

Linear Assets
Roads Pipelines (sewers, oil pipelines) Railway tracks Preserved and restored in place, and in segments

A non Linear Asset occupies a defined space and can be tracked by its location or modeled as part of a parent child hierarchy

Linear Assets have linear properties and often connect with each other by their relationship with the linear infrastructure itself
