Tucson Electric Power (TEP) are enhancing their engineering design capability by integrating best-in-breed network design software with their existing enterprise GIS. TEP is completing deployment of Bentley OpenUtilities with on-the-fly cost estimation and engineering workflow management. Automatic compatible unit assignment and comprehensive unit data support will enable TEP to produce detailed labor and material cost breakdowns faster without time-consuming cycles between their GIS and enterprise Work Management System. This provides the ability to explore options quickly, find the least-cost design, and to submit designs within budget the first time. TEP also expects to reduce project delays with the ability to better manage work requests from directly inside their GIS design environment. The configurable design workflow engine in Bentley OpenUtilities will enable managers to assign, manage, and approve work orders, to allow TEP to avoid open-loop processes as well as track project status and progress using dashboards and reports.
