Standardization in identifying and recording defects is critical in asset management. MACP, a relatively newer standard, is gradually being embraced by cities and municipalities for manhole assessment. Since MACP does not currently score manholes based on their condition, a tool was developed using model builder - with existing system tools and Python - to quantify manholes, based on recorded defects. This leads to a better understanding of hotspots and the efficient management of assets.
