City West Water is responsible for the annual supply of 100 billion litres of drinking water, recycled water and the transfer and treatment of 94 percent of the sewerage and trade waste throughout Melbourne’s CBD and growing western suburbs.
The company wanted to to streamline their sewer pump station (SPS) monitoring process which previously took more than one hour to load and required checking twice per day.
SAGE streamlined the sewer pump station (SPS) monitoring process by bringing a prototype program into a fully functional enterprise capability.
It developed a solution within the PI system according to “statement of requirements” for a pilot SPS site and tested in conjunction with the Operations Research team and stakeholders. Finally it expand the solution to all SPS sites and meet business requirements.
SAGE provided engineering consultancy services to deploy a prototype application, “GraphAid Live” into a fully functional and integrated system.
It developed a fully functional enterprise application and integrated it into the PI System.
The application met functional specifications and covered the graphical representation of SPS site performance including; dashboard creation, SQL integration, AF analysis creation and configuration work, creation and modification of AF templates, development of calculations, PI process book pages and PI Coresight displays.
PI System dependencies (PI process book and PI coresight) in test and production environments were upgraded as a result.
City West Water Operations Research team member Karl Blackhall said their new set up involves a level of automated monitoring, based on historical performance, and a simpler interface provides faster access.
“We are always looking to introduce new initiatives and the implementation of this new application has streamlined our monitoring process,” Mr Blackhall said.
