Is your agency using GIS for maintenance scheduling to take full advantage of the spatial aspect of your distributed water/wastewater system? The City of San Diego Metropolitan Wastewater Department is! MWWD and HDR created a customized application, built on ArcGIS 8.x technology, to aid in maintenance scheduling. The application includes maintenance dispatch spatial optimization, automated map-based service request printing, and maintenance frequency optimization. Aside from minimizing crew drive time and set up time, proper analysis of this type of asset based and code based data is a fundamental building block to optimize capital improvement planning. While this tool was created for a sanitary sewer maintenance section, it can be applied to maintenance scheduling and frequency optimization for any type of distributed assets.
