Q: What are the essential components of total information control?
A: Total information control involves three essential components.
Complete Information: Essential data must be obtained for every asset, including attributes like manufacturer/model, turn count, GPS location, and many more.
Accurate Information: Quite often attribute and/or mapping information does not match utility records, rendering it useless. Therefore, a key component of total information control involves checking for data discrepancies.
Available Information: Integrating the field data into a GIS and/or a work order management system allows all stakeholders to use the data.
The best way to achieve total information control is with an inventory assessment program, which ensures all three components are completed. We offer numerous information services including: ArcGIS Online implementation, asset inventory, asset management, data capture, data integration, data management, EAM integration, GIS adjustment, GIS spatial adjustment, GPS location, isolation traces, mapping discrepancy resolution, mobile GIS, unidirectional flushing plans and more.
