Lovion RANKING Prioritisation
Prioritisation according to Importance and Condition
In Lovion RANKING, Assets, asset groups, asset structures and even the entire network can be visualized graphically and in lists based on their condition and importance. By displaying required overhaul or maintenance measures, a prioritisation can be carried out depending on various criteria. These criteria can be defined by the user.
To determine an objective prioritisation, all assets are selected. Available filtering functions in Lovion BIS can be applied. As a result, pipeline assets of a network can be analysed based on, for example, damage-sensitive materials for a specific construction year. This means that assets can be selected based on their geograpgical features as well as other atributes using SQL queries. Higher ranked asset groups can be disassembled into their parent and child objects for evaluation. The hierarchical structure of asset data enables aggregations and heredity to be taken into account. All further functions are filtered based on listed results. These selected assets are loaded into an RCM diagram based on their conditions and importance using the RATING function.
Each asset is displayed two-dimensionally in the RCM diagram. The level of importance is depicted on the x-axis whereas the y-axis displays the condition. All assets make up a point cloud that is optically divided into different ranking classes. The location and colour ranking classes can be configured individually for each asset group. Depending on the location within a specific ranking class, assets are displayed in the corresponding colour in the map to visualize the results geographically. The colour scheme can be adopted in the company's entire Lovion BIS so that conditions as well as the importance and prioritisation of assets are, for example, displayed in construction projects. Assets can be selected in the list as well as in the map.
A prioritsation between assets can be carried out in Lovion RANKING. For this purpose, the distance between assets to the ranking line, which is visualized by the dividing angle of the second and fourth quadrant, is determined. In this example, the relation to condition and importance is the same.
Assets displayed in the RCM diagram are prioritised using the ranking function. The result of this function is a list prioritising the urgency of overhauls. Assets located above the ranking line have a high priority and are highlighted in the list as well as the map. All assets below the ranking line have a low prioritisation.
Creating Construction Projects
Evaluating assets lays the foundation for developing an asset strategy and implementing direct measures. In connection with Lovion PROJECT, construction projects can be created based on analysed assets. The project is directly linked to analysed assets.
