Trimble’s solution for Optimized Vegetation Management enables electric transmission and distribution operators to Make LiDAR Data Actionable through a robust toolset consisting of comprehensive data collection services, data analysis, risk modeling, planning, field work execution, monitoring and reporting.
Better Data = Better Decisions
With Trimble solutions for Optimized Vegetation Management, utilities can:
Improve situational awareness on vegetation risk
Make better decisions based on relevant data and analysis
Prioritize remediation with pinpoint accuracy
Enhance field work execution
Monitor and track maintenance activities
Support internal and regulatory reporting requirements
Improved data flow from the office to the field and back
Reduce overall vegetation management costs
Improve system reliability
Comprehensive Data Collection, Analysis and Risk Modeling
Trimble’s comprehensive data capture methodology combines aerial, land-based and satellite platforms to rapidly buildup detailed network asset and vegetation data models. A combination of smart workflows and processes then converts that data into actionable network asset information by identifying the precise location and condition of network asset risks relative to vegetation encroachment in environmental context.
Through greater understanding the risks associated with vegetation encroachment and potential failures, vegetation management staff can make the right decisions at the right time centered on prioritized vegetation risk and remediation, as well as logical maintenance planning and execution. Advanced 3D visualization tools also provide further insight and enhanced decision support with improved user access to actionable data in the office and the field with crews and contractors.
Efficient Planning, Field Work Execution and Reporting
Based on data-driven network asset condition and vegetation risk analysis, maintenance actions are planned, prioritized and assigned directly to crews and contractors in the field using Trimble Utility-To-Go, a mobile maintenance application with network asset and vegetation risk map visualizations for improved situational awareness and maintenance action accuracy.
Additionally, as vegetation remediation actions are carried out in the field, information flows back to the office for monitoring of planned maintenance work, progress and reporting for internal and regulatory reporting requirements
