Geo-Enabling Asset Management

  1. 1. Copyright © 2011 GeoEnable Ltd. All Rights Reserved Geo-Enabling Asset Management Steven Eglinton 30 November 2011 The Asset Management Conference 2011 IET, London
  2. 2. Copyright © 2011 GeoEnable Ltd. All Rights Reserved Outcomes • My involvement with GIS and Asset Management • Geospatial at Tube Lines • Lesson Learnt / Challenges • Steps to Achieve Geo-Enablement • From Project to Process Focus • Opportunities • Conclusions
  3. 3. Copyright © 2011 GeoEnable Ltd. All Rights Reserved My Involvement in Asset Management/GIS • 12+ years in Geospatial Information Industry: • 10 years - land/environment assets management • 4 years Corporate Geospatial Information Manager, Tube Lines (London Underground) Now • Director, GeoEnable • Council Member/Director, AGI - The UK Geospatial Membership Body
  4. 4. Copyright © 2011 GeoEnable Ltd. All Rights Reserved What is Tube Lines? • Is an asset-management company selected by the UK Government to regenerate and modernize the following London Underground Lines: – Jubilee, Northern and Piccadilly (JNP) •Tube Lines Ltd is now part of Transport for London (TfL)
  5. 5. Copyright © 2011 GeoEnable Ltd. All Rights Reserved Approximately 2,100 employees Assets and Network 227 escalators 71 lifts 2,395 buildings and structures 207 miles of track 251 trains 100 stations 1.75 Million Passengers each Weekday
  6. 6. Copyright © 2011 GeoEnable Ltd. All Rights Reserved Contract • Performance Contract between Tube Lines and London Underground. • Tube Lines is contracted to improve the assets and the service. • Pain/gain based on five measurement criteria: – Capability - Journey time minutes, – Availability - Lost customer hours, – Service points - Number of system faults, – Ambience - Mystery Shopper Surveys, – Stations delivery - Delivery of projects against set dates.
  7. 7. Copyright © 2011 GeoEnable Ltd. All Rights Reserved Key Asset Information – Location (‘Where’) Where Who WhatWhen Why How • ‘Where’ is the key for context – but, this is granular enough in your Asset Management System (AMS)?
  8. 8. Copyright © 2011 GeoEnable Ltd. All Rights Reserved Location (‘Where’) Applies to All Asset Groups Civils •Bridges & Structures •Pumps & Drainage •Deep Tunnels •Earth Structures Track Signals Rolling Stock Premises Power Mechanical Services Lifts & Escalators Fire Protection Electrical Depot/Plant Communications • All assets can be visualised in the GIS / mapping tools, when encoded with the correct location codes (linear and non-linear)
  9. 9. Copyright © 2011 GeoEnable Ltd. All Rights Reserved Example: Civils and Track In this example Geographic View of: • Civils • Bridges & Structures • Earth Structures • P-Way • Plain line track • P & C (switches) SOURCES GEOMETRY Generated using geometry (‘shapes’) take from CAD, survey data and digitized in GIS (using aerial imagery and LiDAR). ATTRIBUTES Held and mastered in Maximo EAMS
  10. 10. Copyright © 2011 GeoEnable Ltd. All Rights Reserved Example: Signals and Track In this example Schematic View of: • Signals • P-Way • Plain line track • P & C (switches) SOURCES GEOMETRY Generated using ‘Dynamic Segmentation’ i.e. taking linear reference from Maximo and ‘plotting’ location using track centre line ATTRIBUTES Held and mastered in Maximo EAMS
  11. 11. Copyright © 2011 GeoEnable Ltd. All Rights Reserved Why ‘Geo-Enable’ Asset Management? Combines AMS and GIS capabilities: • Organise information by location • Facilitate integrated planning • Report project progress • Visualise assets in context • Identify patterns and trends • Validate asset location • Accessibility of CAD and survey information
  12. 12. Copyright © 2011 GeoEnable Ltd. All Rights Reserved Example: Track Model Construction & Verification Overview - all Tube Lines tracks, centre lines drawn out to grid full size Detail - all tracks and points given LCS coding. All Points & Crossings (switches) represented as discrete area assets in the track model and the Maximo database
  13. 13. Copyright © 2011 GeoEnable Ltd. All Rights Reserved We do more than GIS – We use and manage all types of Geospatial data: • Geographic Information Systems (GIS) • Computer-Aided Design (CAD) • Survey Activities (Laser Scanning & ‘Geomatics’) • Building Information Modelling (BIM) • Remote Sensing (Satellite, Aerial, LiDAR) • Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS/GPS) • Location Information (e.g. addresses, coordinates) • Web Maps & Web GIS
  14. 14. Copyright © 2011 GeoEnable Ltd. All Rights Reserved What is Location Intelligence? • Integration of Geospatial information & technologies with business information to create location-aware Business Intelligence, to enable decision-support. • Visualisation – dashboards, KPIs, maps, diagrams • Often embedded in other sytems Look-out for these synonyms: • Geospatial Business Intelligence (GeoBI) • Location Analytics
  15. 15. Copyright © 2011 GeoEnable Ltd. All Rights Reserved GIS - Think Information, not just a map Data Source(s)
  16. 16. Copyright © 2011 GeoEnable Ltd. All Rights Reserved Information Strategy Does your Information Strategy include Geospatial?
  17. 17. Copyright © 2011 GeoEnable Ltd. All Rights Reserved From Geo-Centric to Geo-Enabled • From a focus on Geospatial Technologies & Tools • To embedding Geospatial Information in Business Processes Geo-Centric Geo-Enabled CAD GIS 1 2 3 CAD GIS Geo Web Think Spatially Think Integration BIM

  19. 19. Copyright © 2011 GeoEnable Ltd. All Rights Reserved • To define where we are on the track – need a coding system ( Legacy system specified by London Underground) – N124 = unique area code – N = northern line – EB = eastbound track – LO = local track – 101 = 101 metres along track in direction from start of an area We need Standards (& Codification)

  21. 21. Copyright © 2011 GeoEnable Ltd. All Rights Reserved Different Location Codes: Where do we mean? • New Signaling Assets use linear ‘Guideway’ • Stations and inter-station section codes • Location Standard does exist in LU
  22. 22. Copyright © 2011 GeoEnable Ltd. All Rights Reserved Provides consistent location references – LUL Cat 1 Standard 1-035 - Location Coding System (LCS) – Controlled single source of truth – Unique for all track down to 1m – Unique for all rooms and cupboards We must use this for how we describe locations in our asset register (Maximo) Location Coding Standards – 1 The Tube
