Accurately predict system behavior with pre-built strategic funding scenarios. Two scenarios are predefined and one is determined by the budget you define in Asset Essentials. Improve efficiency exponentially by sharing accurate, digestible, and up-to-date system management reporting outputs. You can export data from Capital Predictor™, and leverage five interactive, shareable, and printable reports. *Note: Not all clients are eligible for this integration.

How to read your reports
When you navigate to the list of funding scenarios you will see an overview graph representing the cost and state of your systems over 30 years based on each of the three funding scenarios. This graph is interactive and has many options to help you gather information.
- Each color on the graph will align with the colored bar to the right of the funding scenarios.
- You can click on the colored bar or in any of the blank space next to an individual funding scenario to add or remove it's data from the graph.
- The trend lines on the graph represent the system's condition over 30 years.
- The bars on the graph represent the amount of funding that is anticipated in order to keep your systems maintained over the years.
- The dots on the graph represent the state of the system. It will range from State 0, which means the system is new, to EOL which means the system is at the end of its useful life.
- Hover over any of the dots or bars on the graph to get an exact estimate of the anticipated budget needed per year based on the funding scenario.
There are three funding scenarios that are a combination of user-defined data, models, and strategies calculated within our applications using complex mathematical algorithms. Each funding scenario represents a defined budget over 30 years to address renewal needs for your systems.
- Click one of the funding scenario links or the three dots next to the colored bar to open the five standard reports for that specific scenario.
- You will land on an overview graph similar to the one above that displays the cost and state of your systems over 30 years based on that specific funding scenario. You are able to interact with these graphs.
The zero-based budget represents your facility running your systems all the way to failure, assuming there was zero budget for maintenance over 30 years. This data will show the depreciation of each of your systems and when they will hit their end of useful life within the 30 years.
The user-defined budget represents your facility maintaining your systems consistently over time within the limits of your annual budget that is defined in Asset Essentials over 30 years. This data will show the impact that keeping up with maintenance on your systems within your budget will have.
The unconstrained budget represents your facility maintaining your systems on an as-needed basis over 30 years. This data will show the funding that is necessary from year-to-year to keep your systems in a brand new state.
There are five standard reports for each funding scenario.
The Funding Analysis report displays a yearly funding breakdown using total treatment cost and system categories. Treatment is defined as the renewal of a system to optimize its life cycle. You can hover over the various categories on the bar graph to get a closer look at the year, system category, and estimated treatment cost.
The Service Analysis report displays the predicted system condition by year. You can hover over each condition level on the bar graph to get a closer look at the year, condition level, estimated replacement value, and weighted average. Weighted average can be defined as the average overall service level of all assets in a given year.
The Location Analysis report displays the total treatment cost by year, along with aggregated system categories by year, with a sum of the estimated costs. Treatment is defined as the renewal of a system to optimize its life cycle. You can click on an individual location's bar in the second graph to narrow down the results shown in the first graph.
The System Life Cycle report displays each unique system name together with its replacement value and total cost based on the number of applied treatments that is anticipated within the 30 years. You can click on an individual system from the list to narrow down the data shown in the two graphs on the right, which display the system's treatment cost and condition per year over 30 years. You can also filter the report further by using the Search fields below the column headers.
The Location Backlog report displays the sum of backlog by location, sum of backlog by year, and FCI (Facility Condition Index). FCI is calculated as the total estimated cost to complete deferred maintenance projects for the building, divided by its estimated replacement value. Backlog is defined by the system components that are projected to have a state of six in a given year and will not have the life cycle replacement treatments completed in that year. You can click on an individual location's bar in the second graph to narrow down the results in the first graph.
How to export your reports
There are three ways you can export each report's data: export to CSV, save as PNG, and copy image.
- Click the three dots ( ) located under each report in the top right corner.
- Select one of the following:
- Export to CSV - This option will download a CSV file to your local drive to view the raw data for the report.
- Save as PNG - This option will download a PNG file to your local drive to view an image of the graphs included in the report.
- Copy Image - This option will copy the image of the report graphs to your clipboard so you can paste it into another application.
