Putting dTIMS Outputs In Front of Asset Managers

  1. 1. RIMS Conference 2013Innovation AwardsPutting dTIMS outputs in front of AssetManagers:Improved accessibility in favourite format Presenter: Ken Mitchell Opus International Consultants - Napier RIMS Conference - March 2013
  2. 2. The Challenge… Traditionally dTIMS outputs have been difficult to translate back to the roading network at a project level. How to provide accessible treatment forecasts GIS outputs are developing but a simple accessible output was required to indicate where optimised decision making could make a difference in Road Network Asset Management How could we do it better? RIMS Conference March 2013
  3. 3. The Situation… Traditionally dTIMS outputs have focussed on network level outputs and summaries − Reseal /Rehab/AC 10 year averages − Condition trends : e.g.: PCI, SCI, Roughness etc. − Investment patterns linked to FWP/Trigger and optimised treatment forecasts Translating this back to the project level of the network the analysis was performed on has been limited. What could we do? RIMS Conference March 2013
  4. 4. The solution - Iteration 1 Extract dTIMS budget scenario treatment forecast outputs and work on more accessible formats for the analysis results. Trial an excel format that Asset Managers easily access and use to and see results at a treatment length level. Not Rocket Science  V1: Basic sorted excel sheet, some conditional colour  V2: A slightly smarter version with more filtering, summary network length “..engineers love excel…..” Anon Intention: Keep it simple and accessible. Client: Wairoa District Council RIMS Conference March 2013
  5. 5. The solution - Iteration 1 v1-Simple searchable, sorted, colour coded excel. RIMS Conference March 2013
  6. 6. The solution - Iteration 1 v2-filtered, sorted, colour coded, summarised excel. Clients: Wairoa DC and Wellington CC RIMS Conference March 2013
  7. 7. The solution - Iteration 2 Use Excel and conditional colour for PCI (Pavement Condition Index) condition comparison between budget scenarios. Intent:  Show the difference between the current non-optimised FWP and the investment limited optimised treatment forecast.  Make it easy to see relative differences in condition (Green is good, Red is Bad) Client: Wairoa District Council RIMS Conference March 2013
  8. 8. Iteration 2a: PCI RainbowsConditional Formatting, Sorting, Stats Highlight Not Pretty, But you see the difference RIMS Conference March 2013
  9. 9. The solution - Iteration 3 Use Excel Pivot tables to allow asset managers to drill down into summarised treatment and investment forecasts to Road, Treatment length, Hierarchy level Issue: You need a certain level of excel knowledge to be comfortable using these? Client: RIMS Conference March 2013
  10. 10. Iteration 3: Pivot tables: filtered, annual summary, easy search This is not very difficult to achieve and simple to use once you know how… allows rapid drilldown and summarisation RIMS Conference March 2013
  11. 11. Iteration 2-3: Putting it on a Map dTIMS output to RAMM GIS Wellington City has taken the data a step further and created a RAMM user defined table (UDT) based on these model outputs In UDT form it is viewable as a layer in RAMM GIS. Putting the data in a spatial format will be native in dTIMS v9 but that is still a bit further down the track for NZ RAMM GIS is evolving and you need to keep and eye on the releases. Look for it on your RAMM Apps page. RIMS Conference March 2013
  12. 12. Taking it a step further: Kirsten Brown, WCC Asset Data Analyst “I created the UDT to help identify roads/sections for our reseals programme. The initial list comprises all roads that have at least one section recommended by TSA or dTIMS for the next year, excluding those with reseal jobs on them in the current year. The engineers visit each road to choose which roads/sections to reseal. The TSA and job data is in RAMM as well as all the other data the engineers require (seal age, length, type, carriageway hierarchy, footpath and kerb & channel condition). By adding the dTIMS data I was able to write a single RAMM SQL that identified the roads to check and produced a results set with all the required data in it.” RIMS Conference March 2013

  14. 14. RAMM GIS Layer View with Filter • Contextual data can also be displayed. • Layers from other sources also able to be displayed • Comes with your RAMM database RIMS Conference March 2013
  15. 15. Summary: Keep it Simple & Effective Target turning data into  Thanks to usable information  Wairoa District Council Look at what you can do and  Wellington City Council try and keep it simple where possible. Use tools that people can tolerate easily if required Build on what works and adapt as new tools develop and people want more.
