Pennsylvania American Water (PAWC) needed a more accurate way to manage the assets throughout its infrastructure. PAWC originally tracked the location of its assets, such as hydrants, street valves and water mains, with computer-aided design (CAD) drawings. The CAD files were a graphic representation of the system, based on paper maps created from field information without the precise location indicated. The uncertainty of asset location caused delays in response time to work orders.

PennDOT’s Guide Rail Management App

PennDOT’s BOMO needed to automate the process of tracking the damage, repair, and replacement of guide rails and end treatments. With guide rail activities occurring daily in the field, data was captured manually and could not adequately be tracked and monitored at the state level with the Roadway Management System (RMS).
