PDAM Banjarmasin Implements Water Utility GIS for Facility Management
Perusahaan Daerah Air Minum supplies drinking water to Banjarmasin, Indonesia. It uses Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure’s G/Technology to analyze and maintain its asset data model based on the daily maintenance operations within the organization.
Intergraph G/Technology provides rich version management, analysis, and reporting capabilities required to model and manage engineering life cycles, including coordination with other business platforms such as enterprise resource planning (ERP), work and asset management system (WAMS), and field operations.
Intergraph G/Technology enables water utilities to maintain the location-based asset data needed to inform and coordinate the planning, construction, and operation of their network â€“ including fulfilling regulatory requirements and creating a readily accessible, definitive source of information. It ensures records are current, consistent, and accurate. At its core, it is a rich water network model providing a highly accurate connected database of all the distribution assets of the system, their engineering properties, connectivity, and relationships, such as water mains and sewers, storage reservoirs, pumps, pipelines, valves, and meters.
Advanced version management enables the business to model and track assets and work across the full engineering life cycle, including integration and coordination with other business-critical systems for efficient and reliable execution â€“ including ERP, WAMS, and mobile workforce management.
G/Technology’s smart editing tools further improve the speed and quality of data capture by using rules to drive semi-automated placement and run integral data validation. The assisted placement speeds the capture of complex graphical features while ensuring the correct symbology is applied. This produces data that is visually consistent and in accordance with corporate standards. At the same time, rules-based validation enforces corporate design practices and engineering/configuration rules while also checking that the geospatial elements are topologically clean. Their overall effect boosts efficiency, provides higher-quality data, and expedites posting to the master data by reducing the need for post-capture data validation and clean-up.
Direct coordination of process and sharing of information between systems enables the business to remove disconnected and redundant processes. This enables operators to enhance safety, save money, and expedite work while improving the accuracy and currency of their records.
To expand the scope of the network to offer customer connections, the system supports integration with OSS/NRM platforms to enable streamlined processes for the deployment and provisioning of services over the network. Fiber Optic Works runs on G/Technology, the same platform as our water infrastructure management solution, making it easy to implement and manage.
