Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all
We have received a huge amount of support from family and friends (clients included of course!) since forming Adapt in May. We have been kept busy with many interesting projects and, looking at our schedule, 2008 is shaping as another big year for both Adapt and our clients. We look forward to delivering for all clients, adapting solutions and building stronger relationships.
Integrated Asset Management System
Gippsland Water is preparing for a very busy 2008. We have been assisting their Asset Management Team in selecting a suitable AMS solution to replace existing systems. Gippsland Water has a large water factory in construction and implementing Plant Maintenance for it is the first stage of the AMS project. This will involve adding several integration points to systems, including SCADA, to automatically trigger planned maintenance activities. The project will then proceed onto reticulation asset management. Adapt Solutions will be involved with all aspects of the implementation to ensure a successful project outcome.
ATMS - Adapt Task Management System
Adapt will have product sheets and marketing available early in the New Year. A huge thanks to everyone involved to date both at New Plymouth and in our development team.
System enhancement and process documentation
The Dunedin City Council Roading Department has had a very challenging year. Adapt worked with DCC to realign their system reporting to their contract specification. The data outputs now match the specification of the road maintenance contract. DCC are also in the process of recompiling their Road Maintenance Contract which will be released for bids in early 2008. We are assisting them in writing the system process section.
We worked with good and bad data this year and we do not expect this to change any time soon. However, there are encouraging points. We are seeing a more proactive approach to improving data over time - something we touched on in a recent article.
On the data front we have just started a project for Gerard Cody of Timaru District Council. Gerard has facilitated the GPS capture of a large water reticulation network. We are helping prepare the data to a suitable state before it migrates to their AMS system. We’ll keep you informed on how this goes. Thanks again – Jamie and Nige
