The following Opvantek, Inc. products and services solve problems faced by the Gas Industry:
Optimain® DS – Comprehensive decision-support solution that enables gas operators to meet recently enacted federal Distribution Integrity requirements by enabling automated system-wide risk assessment and support for the prioritization of cost effective mitigation strategies. Optimain DS integrates with virtually all major relational (RDBMS) and spatial (GIS) systems to collect and assimilate information associated with a gas operator’s distribution network.
Before DIMP was introduced, Opvantek developed software and services to support distribution integrity. Now that DIMP is here, we continue to enhance our flagship Optimain DS software and develop additional software to meet the increased needs of the gas industry. The latest Optimain DS enhancements include:
- Advanced Data Analysis (ADA) is designed to support operator efforts to identify and quantify new or evolving integrity threats, improve source data quality, and provide summary reports, charts, and dashboards containing Optimain DS project results.
- Optimain DS Enhanced Planning enables users to model the revised risk score that results from implementing various potential alternative actions or risk mitigation strategies. Optimain models the cost and risk impacts associated with each plan, and users can compare different risk mitigation strategies on the same project and also construct area-wide risk mitigation plans.
- Auditing provides a complete history of every Optimain DS risk evaluation project including changes to all projects and configuration data. It provides tools for viewing and reporting against the history records, and enables users to create system snapshots at any time. This feature also supports regulatory audits for DIMP, as well as reporting and tracking changes over time.
Optimain® ACM –Robust, field-tested, asset/event registers and compliance management solution for gas distribution utilities that ensures mandated maintenance and inspection programs are performed within specified compliance timeframes. Optimain ACM solution allows users to visualize hierarchal asset relationships via innovative upstream and downstream asset TreeViews. Users can also create and track maintenance programs and ad hoc work requests.
Optimain® xDR (Excavation Damage Risk) – a new software approach to addressing third party damage, the #1 identified threat to gas distribution systems. Optimain xDR interfaces with near real-time data from One-Call Centers, Ticket Aggregators, or Locate Contractors and combines that data with other known risk factors to enhance damage prevention initiatives.
Optimain® SPIP (Service Pipe Integrity Program) – extends Optimain DS to assess and manage the distinct risk associated with service pipes. It forecasts the expected number of service pipe failures based on attributes and repair history, enabling calculation of distinct service pipe risk and economic scores on each Optimain project. The total risk of a project is then calculated as the sum of the main and service pipe risk.
Optimain® GPS –an innovative tool kit that automatically geocodes and places both historic and new records (i.e. leaks, services, etc.) on the GIS facility with the greatest match confidence.
Optimain® JPM –An enterprise solution to manage third-party paving and construction projects that affect your assets and analyzes the impacts and cost benefits of various asset rehabilitation strategies related to third-party construction.
Optimain® RBLS (Risk-Based Leak Survey) – enables users to employ a new survey-adjusted risk score, based on the probability of an undetected leak between scheduled leak surveys, to target and justify alternative leak survey intervals.
