They also have data locked up in their workers’ minds with no easy way to capture the information. The business impact is that they may be making decisions based on an incomplete understanding of the situation at hand. Since utilities have so much data, it’s hard for them to consistently perform an analysis. The business impact is that they make decisions based on worker experience. As knowledge workers retire, that insight will be lost. Given the volume of data and the lack of analytics to deal with the data, it becomes difficult to communicate and collaborate with the work force.

One utility created a completely different series of maps for their secondary network system, radial underground system, and overhead primary system. Some separated their map products by voltage level. What happened, of course, was that these mapping systems became increasingly unwieldy. Utilities found that it became more and more difficult to keep these maps up to date. Changes came rapidly during periods of high expansion. Operating groups grew concerned about the currency of these maps and would keep their own separate maps, often not sharing their maps with the mapping department.

8 What the electric company does. well they perform, not so much on how hard they work. Performance workflows influence all four of the stakeholders. Common workflows that strongly influence performance are inspections, preventative repairs, tuning, dispatching, customer care services such as billing and account assistance, answering customers inquiries, monitoring the system, and emergency management. Assuring cyber and physical security, collecting money from delinquent accounts, keeping inventory levels low, and calculating and mitigating risk are all examples of performance workflows.
