As water is increasingly being recognized as a high-value commodity, aging assets present a major threat to organizations that treat and deliver it. Improving asset performance is one of the most effective strategies a water and wastewater plant or network can take to reduce costs and protect quality. Digital transformation enables asset performance management by automating and integrating information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT). Collecting operational data from connected assets such as pumps and sharing it with real-time decision support applications – in the cloud or on premises – is how digitization improves asset performance.
This paper presents a three-part asset performance improvement program to align water and wastewater plant and network assets for a new generation of cost-efficient, high quality water processing and distribution.
