Asset management is critical in maintaining and evaluating equipment crucial to the successful operation of a utility. A key aspect is the collection of complete, meaningful data for each piece of equipment and the ability to easily evaluate the data. A utility in Kansas implemented a system to collect data from their wastewater pump stations and logged labor hours, material costs, and outside contractor costs. From this data, they can establish a predictive maintenance schedule, budget for station repair and/or replacement based on return on investment, establish a benchmark for the cost of maintaining a typical station, compare the cost to operate and maintain different types of stations, etc. Read the full whitepaper to learn more about the study
