Conduit Manager ArcFM Conduit Manager is an integrated set of tools and dialogs to add, annotate, and maintain the underground infrastructure of the utility network system. Conduit Manager provides the functionality for defining a conduit system and displaying cross-section annotations that describe its contents, including trenches, banks, underground conductors, and underground access structures. You can place ducts within ducts and place phases separately. Designer Express The primary focus of Designer Express is to create a quick construction sketch and cost estimate while relaxing some of the GIS and Accounting principles that can be handled later in the design process.

It is this competition that has caused many to reevaluate current approaches to customer service, service delivery, and service reliability. In addition, competition is changing the utility Business paradigm, with utilities diversifying their product offering.

Utilities are now entering other markets in order to provide value-added service that propels them ahead of the competition. Telecommunications, security systems, Internet service, and other new services now provided by utilities are changing the way these Businesses manage information.

When you add the fact that utilities now need to think and perform more like a Business competing in a free market than an organization operating in a regulated environment, the need for advanced information technology becomes greater than ever. Applications such as competitive analysis, customer analysis, and site location--which were abstract terms in the utility language just a short while ago--are now becoming commonplace.

Enter ArcFM. Developed in conjunction with utility Business partner Miner and Miner, ArcFM is the open solution based on industry standards. The following are just a few of the successful utility Business sites succeeding with ArcFM. Using a custom interface and application tools, applications such as distribution and line analysis, work order processing, automated mapping, and facility planning will all be managed using one solution. By automating and integrating these processes, SHECO will stay ahead of future growth and other industry changes.

The GIS software will consist of ArcFM for core editing, modeling, and data management functionality for facility, network, and land base data, as well as related attribute data. ArcFM Viewer will serve as the desktop solution for high-speed query, display, and plotting of spatial data. Full use of the TCMS in Brewster will begin in July with corporatewide use in all 13 divisions to take place this fall. NYSEG serves more than one million electric and natural gas customers.

The utility operates a natural gas service area that covers 6, square miles spread across 31 counties, 85 cities, and towns.

NYSEG maintains an electric service area of more than 18, square miles and a service population of 2,, in 42 counties, cities, and towns. Utility assets include 40, miles of transmission and distribution line and substations. With TCMS, the speed and efficiency with which the utility restores power are dramatically increased. In addition, new information, such as the number of customers affected by an outage and the estimated restoration time, is automatically generated and updated in TCMS.

GIS will help us manage both our spatial data and our attribute data to help us keep up with this growth using current staffing levels.

Its electric service territory is approximately 30 square miles and spans inside and outside the City limits, with the water service territory covering the City of Alexandria.

Information on utility assets, including utility poles, transformers, secondary lines, conduit, and other data, will be managed using the GIS.

Spatial Database Engine SDE will serve as the universal spatial data server for integrating very large spatial databases with relational database management systems. The GIS will serve hundreds of users in approximately 50 remote locations. Greenville Utilities Greenville Utilities has selected Esri for a major GIS implementation for its electric, water, sewer, and gas services.

Greenville Utilities was chartered by the North Carolina Assembly in It is organized as an independent agency of the City of Greenville and operates electric, water, sewer, and gas utilities for the City of Greenville and a portion of Pitt County. The company will also acquire ArcFM Viewer, which allows casual users, customer service representatives, field crews, and others to easily query, plot, and analyze spatial and related attribute data.

Greenville Utilities will use ArcFM as an engineering tool.
