Managing assets efficiently is one thing but managing alignment sheet change sets is quite another. Developing hundreds of alignment sheets every year, the innovative Mipela GeoSolutions projects team put their thinking caps on and, on paper, mapped out an alignment route management process. Then, using X-Info Connect converted the mapped out process into an electronic alignment route manager.
Branded X-Info Alignment Route Manager the system is designed to provide users with:
The major concept in the system is the use of a line list for the management of data along a linear asset. This will be a familiar concept to users of A-Sheets and linear infrastructure.
Data can be managed along the asset via kilometre points or easting and northing – the reciprocal is calculated so that both are present in the database.
Data is also prepared according to three levels of use using the standard engineering drawing classifications:
X-Info Connect is the engine that drives the X-Info Alignment Route Manager approval process and captures standard communication types for each activity type: phone calls, emails, meetings, as well as scheduled follow up actions. For instance you can:
Overall the process is simple, the system is easy to use, and set up requirements are minimal. Call today and move away from managing paper based alignment sheets the traditional manual way.
First it was X-Info Maps integration with Maintenance Connection, now Mipela GeoSolutions has found the perfect addition by enabling X-Info Connect to also communicate with Maintenance Connection.
This new pairing enables users to visualise assets through embedded GIS functionality, allowing users to:
When a new DBYD Works Management request is created, a WorkOrder can be automatically generated for that request within Maintenance Connection. The resulting WorkOrder number can then be populated back to X-Info Connect and linked to Maintenance Connection to enable other automated or adhoc actions such as emailing, populating GIS files or adding communications. The request and WorkOrder can also be visualised on a map (in either X-Info Connect or Maintenance Connection) and interrogated through tools in the X-Info Maps interface.
Through this integration, workflow is improved between the two systems resulting in users having a seamless experience to achieve the business objectives of managing their assets and stakeholders.
Overall, this new workflow automation software functionality improves the automatic generation of WorkOrders rising from DBYD enquiries, or any other Works request initiating business data, and further integrates the automation between X-Info Connect, X-Info Maps and Maintenance Connection.
