Decision Support

Your strategic long-range asset, risk and budget management solution.
Decision Support

More than ever, asset-intensive organizations are realizing the importance of having a systematic approach to maintaining, upgrading and operating physical assets cost effectively. Effective asset management planning helps organizations maximize lifespan, manage risk and provide satisfactory levels of service in a sustainable and environmentally responsible manner. Organizations with asset inventories that range from the thousands to the millions can utilize Riva Decision Support, RivaDS, to deliver individually optimized treatment plans for each asset. This powerful forecasting and lifecycle analysis tool is fully configurable and scalable to help organizations with strategic long-range asset, risk and budget management plans.

How it works

RivaDS leverages source data to forecast future events, including inspections, maintenance, rehabilitation and replacement activities. From this list of events, it builds a full 100-year plan for the assets including all recommended treatments with pricing and priority. RivaDS can intelligently identify synergies between events, forecast all relevant KPIs and evaluate maintenance strategies using compelling ‘What if’ scenarios.

Modules

GIS Integration

Geographical Information Systems (GIS) are a significant part of asset management, especially when it comes to asset inventories, and spatial representation and analysis of asset data, outputs from other corporate systems, and data attribution. Riva has integrated to a number of GIS platforms, most importantly to the industry leading solutions from Esri, Intergraph, and Small World. We provide real-time, bi-directional integration to enforce data currency, and the ability to display outputs from Riva that are user defined.

Mobile Use of Riva

Mobility in the workforce is a standard practice in today’s world, and without exception our clients are looking to work with Riva in the field for the purposes of asset inspections, and reporting on their mobile devices. Riva offers this functionality to clients on different platforms including Blackberry, Android, and Windows devices, in a real-time or dis-connected mode.

Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) Condition Inspect

CCTV inspections on wastewater and stormwater pipes is the most common condition assessment practice in the industry. Riva has in the past imported a client’s data from these inspections to update the condition of assets, and refresh the lifecycle plans. Today, Riva offers a full CCTV inspection module that not only stores your inspection data, but the interactive video files of the inspection, and a graphical depiction of the pipeline defects with video linkages. Asset managers can now see all of their data in one system without toggling between applications, and having to store data in multiple sites. All key information for making informed decisions are at your fingertips within a single environment.
