Ranges have always presented a problem to the traditional asset management processes. They have a huge number of very low level assets that have varying attrition rates, but are critical to the safe use of the range.

The problem in accurately predicting forward maintenance costs was caused, in the most part, by the large quantity and varied use of these low level assets. In an effective inspection and maintenance regime it is essential to record individual low level assets then balance against those assets, frequency of use and wear to establish an annual maintenance cost.
