Asset Performance Modeling
RISK-BASED CAPITAL AND ASSET PLANNING
CapPlan Water is a complete decision support, asset management, and capital planning tool for drinking water systems. It seamlessly integrates GIS information, hydraulic and water quality modeling, CMMS, and other related information to help prioritize rehabilitation and replacement of drinking water pipelines.
PRIORITIZE WISELY DETERIORATING INFRASTRUCTURE
Underground infrastructure is rapidly deteriorating, and many utilities struggle with developing a rehabilitation and replacement program that addresses the most critical pipes in the system. Many capital improvement programs spend large amounts of money annually, but do little to lower total system risk. CapPlan Water automatically ranks the worst performing pipes in the network to help prioritize network
KNOW THE CONSEQUENCE OF FAILURE
Understanding the consequences of a pipe failing is critical to determining its replacement priority. CapPlan Water has powerful tools to assess the hydraulic, geographic, spatial, and public relations criticality of each pipe in the system — including automatically taking each pipe out of service and determining the resulting impact on hydraulic and water quality conditions in the entire system.
BUDGET AND PLAN BASED ON RISK
A risk factor is determined for each pipe based on the likelihood and consequence of failure. A wide range of options is available to evaluate the highest priority pipes within existing budgets and determine necessary budgets to mitigate high risk levels over the long term.
ESTIMATE THE LIKELIHOOD OF FAILURE
Determining the likelihood of failure for any pressurized underground water pipe is a challenging exercise. CapPlan Water combines infrastructure, hydraulic, water quality, spatial, and historical data from numerous sources to give users the best possible estimate for likelihood of failure.
