|summary:||This paper provides a review of municipal infrastructure asset management systems currently available, and discusses the evaluation process of a number of commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) software systems. The key features, capabilities, and limitations of the evaluated software are presented. The main objective of the paper is to provide infrastructure asset managers with an objective review of existing systems and technologies, and to identify a number of considerations that need to be addressed in the process of selecting asset management systems. The paper also highlights areas where further research and development are needed in order to extend the scope and capabilities of existing systems to better support the sustainable management of infrastructure assets.|
