Advanced Pipeline Asset Management: Mining and Collecting the “Right Data”
Join a team of Asset Management experts for a workshop on pipeline rehabilitation and replacement (R&R) planning approaches. The presenters, including B&N’s Kevin Campanella, will focus on the benefits of using advanced R&R approaches and how to obtain the necessary data.
Buried pipes constitute approximately two thirds of the value of a water system’s assets. To manage these linear assets utilities need robust programs. Attendees will learn how to use the approaches that are presented to obtain pipeline inspection and rehabilitation forecasts that range from analytically basic to advanced.
To create these forecasts, the right data must be mined from utility databases, cleaned up, and formatted. By increasing the right type of data, a utility can apply more sophisticated approaches to help increase forecast accuracy. Attendees will learn what data is needed, how to prepare it, and various analytical approaches that can be used to analyze it.
