Engineering Cases

Optimization of the on-call service for gas suppliers

Benefits

+ Protection of initial reaction requirements e.g. from DVGW Circular G05/01
+ Optimization of the emergency circuits to improve accessibility in the event of an accidental
+ Increase team sizes for more flexible shift planning and reduce shift divisions
+ Recognize deficits regarding accessibility in the current on-call service

Starting Point

The on-call service of a gas supplier is usually completed by the permanently employed fitters and masters and is based in the core mostly on historically grown structures such as former master fields. Specialized planning tools for readiness are usually not available. In many cases, reconsideration is required due to various structural changes in recent years (for example, quality upgrades in the network, more efficient maintenance, network changes, downsizing) to ensure the initial response times set in the technical regulations in the event of an accidental or increase flexibility within the teams.

Solution

LOGIBALL offers the optimization of the standby service for gas supply companies.

 

The first step is to calculate the current situation. The travel times are calculated from the residences of the mechanics to all relevant network sections and graphically visualized. Under certain circumstances, the result may be that not all network points can be reached by all colleagues in a stand-by circle within the required 30 minutes. In the next steps, in coordination with the customer, scenarios are calculated which improve the actual situation, depending on the desired objective (for example, increasing team strength).

Service package

+ Calculation of the relevant network sections (= line sections that are within a specified distance of residential buildings)
+ Calculation of the travel times of each standby employee to each network section as a basis for
all subsequent steps. In doing so, LOGIBALL resorts to its routing tools and special route network data, including non-public roads, and can optionally picture different types of vehicles, also blue light scenarios (special traffic rules for emergency vehicles)
+ Graphical and tabular representation of travel time requirements (e.g., 30min travel time to each network section) in the actual state of on-call duty
+ Calculation of scenarios (scope and objective in coordination with the customer)
+ Recalculation / optimization of the teams and standby districts taking into account the
customized specifications
