Throughout the seasons, weather can impact your operations — from plowing and chemical applications to mowing and striping. It influences what you do and where and when you do it. Improperly timed activities can create unsafe driving conditions, travel delays, operational inefficiencies, and have significant, negative impacts on your labor, fuel, salt, and chemicals budgets. To help you better manage these challenges, Schneider Electric offers cutting-edge Maintenance Decision Support Solutions (MDSS).

MDSS technology

MDSS is a decision support tool that integrates relevant road weather forecasts, coded maintenance rules of practice, and maintenance resource data to provide you with recommended road treatment strategies.
With MDSS, you can easily analyze current and forecasted weather and pavement conditions to determine what to expect on your roadways in the near future. It does so by incorporating winter road maintenance best practices and strategies appropriate for your specific local climate and road maintenance resources, helping you make the best decisions possible. MDSS also provides road maintenance treatment recommendations for specific routes during winter events, helping you to proactively mitigate dangerous road conditions.

MDSS also provides road maintenance treatment recommendations for specific routes during winter events, helping you to proactively mitigate dangerous road conditions. With MDSS information, you can improve activities, such as: • Chemical applications • Plowing • Mowing • Striping • Spraying The benefits of MDSS The benefits of road weather management strategies include: • Improved safety due to reduced crash risk • Increased mobility due to restored capacity, delay reductions, and more uniform traffic flow • Increased productivity due to reduced labor, treatment materials, and equipment costs 02 | Maintenance Decision Support Solutions Nearly one-fourth of non-recurrent highway delays are weather related and contribute to 500 million vehicle-hours per delay each year.
  • 3. Specific MDSS offerings To best meet your needs, we offer two MDSS packages — point-based and route-based. With them, you can better determine where specific routes will be affected by weather and when those specific routes will need attention. Depending on the level of service, the capabilities can include: • Treatment recommendations for pavement forecasts at RWIS points • Specific treatment recommendations for before, during, and after each storm • Hourly forecasts up to 36 hours • Up to 10 treatment plans based on your operations • Truck icons in the forecast table to alert you of each hour that treatment is recommended • Route-based pavement forecasts and treatment recommendations • Customized parameters, such as best practice application types/rates and available chemicals • Intelligent timing of when to apply treatments to keep the road surface free from snow and ice • Hourly, route-based forecast animations for pavement conditions, pavement temperatures, bridge temperatures, and snow depth on roads Part of a complete solutions suite Our MDSS solutions are just one component in our suite of transportation-focused weather solutions. We also offer MxVision WeatherSentry® Online, a complete weather decision support system that provides weather forecasts, patented weather management tools, and around-the-clock online consultations with professional meteorologists. Our RoadCast® frost and ice forecasts are the basis for road and bridge treatment recommendations that support effective anti-icing programs. In addition, Schneider Electric’s Total View™ solution is a decision management tool that provides everything you need — RWIS stations and data management, integrated into MxVision WeatherSentry Online for streamlined, informed decision making. All of these solutions are designed to help you increase road safety, reduce travel times, operate more efficiently, and better protect your bottom line. Maintenance Decision Support Solutions | 03 Detailed atmospheric and pavement forecasts are available every hour, with recommended treatments based on a client’s standard maintenance best practices. A 36-hour animation of forecast pavement conditions indicates areas requiring treatment. Graphic animations are also available for additional scenarios.
