NetAlytics is a data-intensive cloud-native application offering a suite of analysis routines to provide business intelligence and reporting across multiple aspects of water network management.
NetAlytics provides key analytics to advanced NetOps modules such as Downstream+ and Upstream+, utilising the results of Total Leakage and Upstream Network Analysis to empower operational decision-making.
NetAlytics reporting dashboards are available through the Digital Services Platform to provide analytical insights and high-level overviews.
NetAlytics offers solutions for:
NetAlytics Total Leakage contains a range of analytics components such as policy minimum, intervention and Natural Rate of Rise assessment, flow rates and runtime analyses, DMA entry levels, leakage targets and resources required. The analytics components comprise end-to-end leakage/Non-Revenue Water rolling analysis of District Areas (DMAs) and aggregated to Zones and the whole network, with Dashboard and reporting outputs. The groups of components of the NetAlytics Total Leakage comprise:
- DMAs Detection and Repair performance and targeting group of Components
- DMAs and Zones Strategic Review and Planning group of Components
- Current Year performance and End of Year Reporting group of Components
Analysis results are made available through the NetHub cloud data platform for use in Digital Service applications such as the NetOps Downstream+ module.
Upstream Network Analysis
This analysis is an end to end trunk mains and upstream network analysis, reporting and targeting solution for it to be applied with all of our water industry client water operators. The upstream network analysis includes meter balances of Trunk Mains Tiles and Areas (TMAs) and aggregated to Water Balance Areas and Primary Tiles and Areas. The resulting NetAlytics dashboards available on the Digital Services Platform are aligned to the water operator reporting and monitoring requirements and to the operational actions in the network for resolving anomalies and targeting leakage.
Analysis results are made available through the NetHub cloud data platform for use in Digital Service applications such as the NetOps Upstream+ module.
This analysis applies to DMAs, Zones and Company levels on a rolling year. It produces band summaries, type summaries, daily Annual Consumptions, daily factors, weekly factors, unit profiles, leakage profiles and summaries, superimposing temperature and rainfall data for each area.
It provides clear overviews for companies to interrogate and integrates with the Netbase Hydraulic Modelling Manager application. The outputs for trends highlight the issues and provide the insights that will benefit the identification of water issues and in promoting and establishing the processes for reliable estimation of consumptions.
Smart Meter Analysis
The smart meter analysis calculates daily actual consumption and night use for individual properties and averages daily records to weeks and months from high-frequency smart meter data available in NetHub. It invalidates abnormal data and applies estimations when data is invalid or missing, making sure that the consumption data is available for each calendar week and is reliable.
It also identified potential leak alarms on the customer side by capturing the actual minimum flow from the smart meter data.
Leakage alarms, error and exception reports are produced to allow for effective meter and leakage management.
The consumption / night use data for individual properties are made available through the NetHub cloud data platform for use in Netbase as well as through NetAlytics reporting dashboards.
Domestic Consumption Monitor / Fast Logging Consumption analysis
The Domestic Consumption Monitor / fast logging data for individual areas is captured and stored on the platform timely and frequently.
This analysis calculates daily actual consumption and night use for individual DMAs and Demand Areas, and averages daily records to weeks and months. It invalidates abnormal data and applies estimations to both Per Household Consumption and night use when data is invalid or missing, making sure that the consumption data is available for each calendar week and is reliable.
The consumption / night use data for individual DMAs / Demand Areas are made available through the NetHub cloud data platform for use in Netbase as well as through NetAlytics reporting dashboards.
Model Data Health Check
The Model Data Health Check compares model data with current Netbase data to produce a model health score for each model. This score along with all supporting data is available through NetAlytics reporting dashboards.
This model health score and supporting data can then be used to decide if a model is still fit for purpose or to influence where to prioritise model maintenance.
