While some utilities are able to pursue asset management plans on their own, engineering firms have an opportunity to support utility asset management with outside expertise and additional resources. Read this article to learn more about the challenges of asset management and the hidden costs.
For years, engineer and planning teams have used hydraulic and hydrologic models to adjust and plan for long term changes to the system. Many times, when the core project of the model is completed the model is left without updates for long periods of time. Now utilities and engineering firms are using interconnected modeling databases to support ongoing planning, operations, and real-time system management. The status quo is changing, read this article to learn more:
