Enabling Highway Maintenance Engineers to Boost Efficiency

It’s essential that highway maintenance can be carried out in a timely manner with as little disruption as possible – for the cost-effectiveness of a project and also to ensure the swift return of a road to being publicly accessible.

Steanne’s Geoworks7 Routine Maintenance Management System (RMMS) software means that engineers can carry out a comprehensive evaluation of the highway condition in a seamless way. They are able to access crucial data and the tools to input essential details that display defects or accident occurrences in a specific location over time.

High-quality inspection and analysis reports enable highway maintenance engineers to have the information and data to improve decision-making and project management.

Displaying Data

Being able to quickly assess data and have it presented in a clear way helps engineers to build up a picture of the location they are working on. Geoworks7 Routine Maintenance Management System lets users seamlessly toggle between inspections and cyclic maintenance options. The info is in a colour coded calendar format, making it easy to evaluate and take action on pending or outstanding inspections.

There is a mapping view, which gives information about inspections and inventory for specific Road Sections and users can input new routes or individual ad-hoc daily safety patrols in real-time if necessary. Asset details can be displayed at the same time or for clarity, individual asset types can be turned on or off. Engineers can identify defects and link them to appropriate assets, which makes it simple to raise repair jobs – defect categories are colour coded for ease of use.

Inputting Data

Inputting accurate data is of crucial importance when dealing with something as serious as accident data; RMMS gives highway maintenance engineers the ability to input precise location, description of circumstances, casualties and vehicles involved and potential road contributory factors.

This information can inform decisions that can help to prevent future accidents, meaning RMMS is central to transparent and accountable ways of working – the module allows engineers to spot patterns and determine the causes of multiple or repeated accidents at the same locations.

Information can be quickly synced and accessed by anyone that needs it, enabling a more efficient workflow.

Real-time Data

RMMS enables mobile working and engineers can easily access inspection routes as they are sent to mobile devices – defects can then be identified and logged. Completed data, site reports and any logged defects are then delivered back to the Geoworks7 RMMS module.

GPS is synced with RMMS and highway maintenance engineer positions are logged as inspections are carried out – it’s simple and seamless for completed routes to be inputted and displayed quickly. This is important as there is a growing requirement to manage Freedom of Information Requests that are linked to cases and projects that require evidence that an inspection has been carried out at a specific location and the array of data that is attached to that asset.
