Using asset genetics to unlock hidden capital

Similar to our genetic profiles, infrastructure assets have a set of intrinsic characteristics that establish patterns of behavior and performance. Understanding an asset’s unique traits—such as its location, construction materials, usage statistics, physical condition, and maintenance history—can reduce lifecycle costs while also extending its lifespan. Using these characteristics to optimize at scale—in a city or railway network, for example—optimizes spending, unlocks new capital flows and creates the ability to predict and manage the future. How does this work and is this a serious strategy for narrowing the infrastructure gap without raising taxes?
