South East Water OneAsset systems integration and data visualisation framework
South East Water provides water and sewerage services to over 1.3 million customers in the south-east of Melbourne.
OneAsset is a web-based presentation platform for asset management and monitoring. It is a systems integration and data visualisation framework, used as a tool for South East Water to quickly and easily view information about its network of assets such as pipes, pumps, gates, etc.
South East Water required a new web-based framework to host and display various asset management and operational systems and other related data to provide real-time visibility and business analysis. The brief was to develop a dynamic, highly interactive presentation layer UI to sit across core asset related business systems. Key elements include:
- Google based mapping overviews and interactions
- Tables, lists, search bars etc.
- Calls to a variety of systems via web services/API
- Operator comments, images, hyperlinks, etc.
The challenge was that operational data and visibility of South East Water's systems were in different systems. These needed to be integrated and presented using leading edge web technologies (HTML5, AngularJS) to graphically present the data in a meaningful way to users, who ranged from operational staff to senior management. The framework also needed to have the capability to be extended to display data from other applications or data sources as additional themes and layers (for example, SCADAWEB and electricity outages). The framework utilises:
The OneAsset framework is modular, based on reusable libraries of code that can be extended in the future to consolidate other SEW systems at a UI level. Wave Digital developed a web-based application that integrates varying forms of data from the various systems via their APIs. The data is transformed and then served to a desktop browser in a meaningful and instantly intuitive way to South East Water users. A consolidated view of assets was achieved by bringing together separate sources of operational data that operated 'in silos', and giving visibility of the 'whole picture' of their assets' performance to individual users. The real-time data presentation matches an existing BAU system, which has graphs that continuously show ‘live’ data without requiring a browser refresh.
