Damage Assessment

Damage Assessment
BMJ658

Electric utilities are challenged by geographic distances, changing regulations, legacy systems and processes, increasing technological network complexity and the natural environment in their mission to deliver a reliable service to increasingly educated consumers. When storms or emergencies hit they need to restore power as safely, quickly and predictably as practically possible.

myWorld Damage Assessment™ is a flexible software platform that enables utilities operations teams to drive efficiencies throughout the damage assessment process during storms or emergency events. It dramatically improves overall field communication as well as the speed and quality of information collection, which has a direct positive impact on predictable restoration time and SAIDI and CAIDI performance.

Easy damage information capture

Simple forms based mobile application for capture of damage information in the field, without special training required. Photos can be captured for extra insight.

Enterprise access to information

Simple web based dashboards can communicate information on current damage levels and restoration efforts, enabling operations staff to focus on restoration rather than internal communication of status.

Improved materials management

Integration of damage information with materials management enables materials to be delivered more accurately and quickly to where they are needed in the field.

Real time damage counts

Damage information is pushed back from the field in real time whenever a network connection is available, so damage counts are updated in real time, enabling better response planning.

myWorld Damage Assessment automates the collection and aggregation of damage information after a storm or emergency event, and provides real-time situational awareness for everyone in the organisation, enabling improved decision making and faster restoration of service. Damage assessors in the field can record damage information on any mobile device. A network connection is not required to run the mobile application, but whenever a wireless network connection is available, damage assessment information is immediately uploaded to a central server, providing up to the minute information on total damage and percentage complete of current assessment operations. myWorld Damage Assessment integrates with your GIS, to provide detailed facility maps to the assessors in the field, whether they are working online or offline. 

  • Speed and accuracy of damage information collection is much greater than with traditional mechanisms – can save hours in getting a good picture
  • Improved situational awareness enables better and faster decision making in regard to where to deploy resources for restoration, and in particular whether mutual aid resources are needed
  • Improves SAIDI and CAIDI numbers by reducing restoration times
