When storms strike, extensive physical damage can leave power outage managers without the data they need to assess and prioritize utility restoration efforts. Intergraph Damage Assessment assists storm management by coordinating and facilitating rapid collection and assessment of storm damage that enables planners to make informed decisions on restoration efforts that will maximize restoration rates. It provides tools for strategic utility restoration planning, field data collection, and real-time analysis.
Importantly, it is built on open industry interoperability standards, enabling it to work with most outage management systems (OMS) and geographic information systems (GIS).
Deployment is fast and cost effective, enabling field personnel to use tablets to quickly and accurately record the specifics of damage at each inspection area. Crews’ progress is tracked in real time with analysis tools in the dashboard, helping utilities direct inspections, prioritize restoration areas, and get the lights on faster than ever before.
