Black & Veatch is engaged as a Business Integrator for a multi-year Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) transformation program at one of the largest Gas Transmission, Distribution and Storage utilities, operating across 4 states in the U.S. The EAM Program is intended to implement process standardization and improvement, enhance asset lifecycle data integrity (treat data as a company asset), consolidate systems associated with an asset, work and integrity management. This would enable a Gas Utility to manage its fixed plant gas assets to optimize costs with reliability and resiliency, improve analytics-based decision making, while also improving pipeline safety, operational efficiency and effectiveness.
With multiple mergers and acquisitions, the asset lifecycle data was at different levels of maturity across the Gas Utility. As part of the EAM program, it was critical to conduct a rapid data integrity assessment and develop indicative quantitative metrics that highlight the data integrity and data quality issues across the various systems.
Black & Veatch used the Datum360 Connected Data Platform for the rapid data integrity assessment of approximately 1 million tags across 10 asset management, compliance and work systems including geospatial asset information in Geographic Information Systems.
Black & Veatch required a rapid assessment of the existing asset lifecycle data to understand the level of data integrity issues across the systems, and what it takes to realize the vision of treating data as a Gas Utility asset. Here are the major objectives of the assessment:
PIM360 was used to import 28 million+ operational records with 1 million tags from 10 disparate assets, work and geospatial sources and present in a standardized, useable format for further analysis and develop future state recommendations
CLS360 provided Black & Veatch a robust platform to compare and contrast the disparate data from various sources which were not all categorized in a standard format. Asset Management, Work History and GIS (Geospatial) data were analyzed in the categories of:
The data integrity analysis leveraging PIM360 and CLS360 provided impactful insights to the Gas Utility executives to:
Using the Datum360 Connected Data Platform’s ability to rapidly consolidate millions of records from disparate systems and present in a standardized, user-friendly format for analysis, allowed us to quickly provide the Gas Utility executive leadership with insightful analysis of the current asset lifecycle data.
