Utility managers are being asked to meet or exceed target level of services with fewer people, smaller budgets and less visibility to the true risk and condition of their pipelines. Without the appropriate resources, underfunded aging water systems are exposed to real-time and long-term risks, including decreased operational efficiency, increased repair costs and frayed community relations.
PRIORITIZE YOUR MOST CRITICAL ASSETS
Xylem Asset Performance Optimization enables utilities to identify high-risk pipe segments, predict future asset risk levels, and develop more efficient and cost-effective asset management strategies.
PREDICT AND PRIORITIZE POTENTIAL BREAKS
Accurately predict and prioritize potential breaks at an average of 4-10x more efficiently than with traditional strategies.
DETERMINE CONSEQUENCE OF FAILURES
Quantify and prioritize consequence of failures to compare costs of intervention and inaction.
OPTIMIZE AND JUSTIFY INTERVENTION PLANS
Implement data-driven decision making to justify and optimize intervention plans.
LET’S SEE HOW UNLOCKING REAL-TIME DATA CAN HELP REDUCE FAILURES AND OPTIMIZE ASSET PERFORMANCE
Utilities use advanced risk analytics to make intelligence-based, data-driven decisions about asset reliability and pipe prioritization that can help to significantly reduce operational failures and reduce the cost of maintenance and replacement.
WHY CHOOSE ASSET PERFORMANCE OPTIMIZATION
Unlock the potential of your data to support data-backed decision-making for more accurate risk identification and intervention planning.
- Understand risk - Deepen the understanding of current and future asset risk levels to reduce water main breaks.
- Conserve resources - Free up valuable resources for other projects.
- Prioritize asset intervention - Increase CapEx and OpEx efficiency on utilities’ most critical assets.
- Improve customer satisfaction - Deliver better service with fewer interruptions.
ACHIEVE NEW LEVELS OF VISIBILITY AND DRIVE ASSET INTERVENTION PLANS
Performing a clustering analysis provides utilities a plan to replace aggregate clusters or groups of pipes rather than individual pipes to minimize disruption and mobilization cost.
Let's see how clustering analysis was used to help Raleigh Water in North Carolina reduce product planning time by 75% while reducing breaks across their network.
RISK ASSESSMENT AND PROJECT MANAGEMENT PROCESS
Our industry and technology experts partner with utilities to advise and develop plans that align with their unique network management goals, and address all aspects of their Strategic Intervention Plan with unique solutions that leverage predictive data consulting + analytics and state-of-the-art, dynamic, machine learning.
