Utilities must have the ability to effectively manage underground network systems. Business functions such as duct space joint use, call-before-you-dig, and cable placements are important revenue-earnings and savings activities that require supporting information. By managing underground facilities using sophisticated, intuitive functions to accurately track where cables are located and placed in conduit, these business processes can be realized.
Telvent has developed Conduit Manager as an extension to the ArcFM Solution to support underground facilities management. Conduit Manager is an integrated set of tools and dialogs to add, annotate, and maintain the underground infrastructure of the utility network system. Conduit Manager provides the functionality for defining an underground system with duct banks, trenches, conduits, cross-sections, underground cables, and underground access structures. Once the underground system is built, users can leverage the tracing queries to determine duct availability based on various criteria. All features managed by Conduit Manager are available for viewing in ArcFM Viewer.
Conduit Manager builds on the following advantages:
With Conduit Manager users can represent the following underground components on the map:
