Building out a smarter grid means utilities will need to work smarter
Field work is managed through a cycle. You start by planning the project, then your field team performs the actual work, you report what was done, and finally, you analyze the results to improve your effectiveness and plan for the next iteration. We understand this process and built the WorkStudio system to support it across all types of T&D tasks.
Using WorkStudio, you can develop a strategy that focuses your efforts where they can have the most impact. In the planning process, you are able to fully understand your team's historical performance, as well as leverage data gathered by LiDAR surveying. The system provides a baseline measurement, allowing you to focus on key areas to improve and maintain performance. This helps you meet both your corporate goals and regulatory requirements.
For example, utilities have used WorkStudio to reallocate staff access service centers, reducing dependence on more expensive contract labor. Others have used the system to identify and prepare for changes in local construction trends. For transmission utilities subject to NERC, WorkStudio allows you to see your reliability compared to your clearance efforts, so you can manage your budget and risk effectively.
Work management tools are only as effective as their in-field adoption. That's why WorkStudio offers intuitive field applications optimized for the job at hand, including StakeOut, StormWorks and VegWorks. Our field tools don't just document the work being done; they allow you to make it more accurate and be more efficient.
WorkStudio's reporting tools help everyone in the utility measure and understand their performance. Users can see what they have accomplished and what needs to be completed next. Supervisors can review and audit completed work. Managers know exactly what their team achieved and where they will be dispatched next. Executives get a dashboard view of operation’s KPIs across the utility. WorkStudio’s out-of -the-box implementations include the reports that your utility needs most.
If you can measure it, you can understand and improve it. Once you have WorkStudio in place, the system generates a wealth of data about your business. Looking at the data from different perspectives lets you analyze and improve your processes. You have the information you need to get inside a process and understand exactly what's driving your results.
