1. Water Distribution Control Center of Osaka Water Supply Authority Maintenance/Drawing Information System Update
The Osaka Water Supply Authority is in charge of the water resources of 42 municipalities in Osaka Prefecture. Seeking to enable the ongoing stable supply of good-quality water in a safe and secure manner, the Authority expends a lot of effort on keeping its facilities in good working order and extending their lives. As part of these efforts, it has recently updated the maintenance/drawing management system used by its Water Supply Control Center and seven other facilities. The update is designed to increase the efficiency of the maintenance, inspection, repair, and overhaul work done as needed at facilities in Osaka Prefecture. Its main features are as follows:
- Using a web-based system enables data browsing and editing from staff terminals on the local area network (LAN) used for office work without installing a dedicated system.
- Highly mobile and durable tablet PCs are used to increase the efficiency of the design work done for field surveys or similar operations needed during maintenance, overhauling or upgrading work for site inspections, troubleshooting, or the like.
- The data input work done by the Authority staff has been made more efficient by providing functions that facilitate system loading of function lists, completed drawings, and repair and maintenance reports submitted by construction, repair, and maintenance contractors.
