  1. Using Wikis to Organise and Share AM Knowledge 2013 International Local Government Infrastructure and Asset Management Conference Wednesday 29 May – Thursday May 30, 2013 Wayne Eddy, Strategic Asset Planning Coordinator - Whittlesea City Council http://lgam.wikidot.com/lgam:using-wikis1

  2. My Hypothesis A wiki-based encyclopaedic knowledge base is the best value for money IT project that a Council could possibly implement or support.

  3. What is a wiki? A wiki is a collection of web pages designed to enable anyone (or specifically designated users) to contribute or modify content, using a simplified markup language.

  4. What is a Wiki-based Encyclopaedic Knowledge Base? A wiki-based encyclopaedic knowledge base is a wiki that is organised so that each page is about a single subject that matches the name and title of the page.

  5. What’s so good about wikis, and why do I think they are a great way of sharing AM knowledge?

  6. Advantages of Wikis Wikis are a great tool for managing and disseminating information;

  7. Advantages of Wikis Wikis are a great tool for managing and disseminating information; • they can be edited by many people simultaneously,

  15. Four Knowledge Bases

  16. Search for LGAM

  17. What does it cost? How much does it cost to set up and operate a wiki-based website with hundreds of members and thousands of users?

  18. Wiki software is typically very cheap compared to other software systems • AM System - $100,000 per year • Microsoft Office - $10,000 per year (50 users using Microsoft Office 365) • Wikidot - $10 per year • MediaWiki - Free
