G/Technology Key Features
Designed for the Office & the Field
Designed for both the office and the field, Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure’s Intergraph G/Technology® suite of software products enable utilities and telecommunications network operators to maintain a definitive network model. With it, they can access reliable, location-based information describing their facility network and its connectivity and share this information with users and systems across their organisation.
Uniquely, Intergraph G/Technology serves as a single platform that supports dedicated models for electric, communications, water, and gas networks.
Network Design & Documentation
Intergraph G/Technology’s smart editing tools use rules to drive semi-automated placement and run integral data validation, improving capture speed and data quality. The assisted placement speeds the capture of complex graphical features while ensuring the correct symbology is applied to produce visually consistent data. At the same time, rules-based validation enforces corporate design standards and engineering rules while confirming geospatial elements are topologically clean. This combination boosts efficiency provides higher quality data and expedites posting to the master data by reducing the need for post-capture data validation and clean-up.
Design & Construction
This robust software suite supports rich version management, analysis, and reporting capabilities required to model and manage engineering life cycles. This includes co-ordination with other business platforms, such as enterprise resource planning (ERP), work and asset management system (WAMS), and field operations. The ability to maintain alternate versions, combined with design validation and estimation, enables comparative assessments of designs, both technically and financially.
Network Planning & Analysis
Intergraph G/Technology supports integration with leading distribution network analysis tools – such as ETAP and Siemens – enabling them to operate within its user interface. This combination enables users to initiate calculations and visualise analysis results directly within the map view. In this way, they can evaluate a new design’s impact on the distribution system immediately. This integration also helps validate data in the model to ensure it has the correct functioning needed to support modelling. It also enables the network model to address all the topological and electrical data necessary to support specialised algorithms.
Network Model Management
Vital to safe and effective network operations is an accurate as-operated model of the physical network. The combination of Intergraph G/Technology’s intelligent rules-based design, real-time model updates, and integration with network modelling, monitoring, and control tools provides the basis for a consistent source of data. This data is reliable and functionally rich enough to feed operational systems, such as an advanced distribution management system (ADMS) or outage management system (OMS).
