Discover how IDS revolutionary solutions and methodologies can help you address the challenges for optimizing infrastructure preservation plans.
Our revolutionary solutions implement innovative algorithms unparalleled by competitors’ software, including advanced data analytics, multi-objective optimization, inductive multi-variate deterioration modeling, and risk-based prioritization. IDS solutions are the only software in the market that are guaranteed to generate “truly optimal” network-level multi-year preservation plans.
Bridge Optimizer™ provides unique capabilities to develop risk-based optimized plans for bridge replacement and rehabilitation projects. Unlike competitors’ software which employ heuristic techniques, such as incremental cost-benefit analysis or multi-criteria decision analysis, and, therefore, cannot generate optimal plans, Bridge Optimizer implements a proprietary multi-objective optimization algorithm to generate multi-year lists of preservation projects that are guaranteed to be optimal.
NBI Optimizer™ is a customized version of Bridge Optimizer™based on the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) National Bridge Inventory (NBI) standards. This solution is customized for use by U.S. transportation agencies using NBI standards. NBI Optimizer™ database is populated with NBI data for the entire U.S. bridge inventory since 1992. NBI Optimizer™ cloud-based Software as a Service (SaaS) application provides bridge managers with 24/7 web access to a rich set of features including analytics functions, reports, maps, charts, preservation plans, and dashboards.
Roads Optimizer™ is the only software in the market that can generate optimal risk-based network-level multi-year pavement preservation plans. Unlike other pavement management systems that use rudimentary incremental cost-benefit analysis and, therefore, cannot generate optimal preservation plans, our revolutionary multi-objective optimization algorithm generates optimal project lists based on maximizing network-level condition, minimizing risk levels, and minimizing lifecycle costs. We guarantee the plans to be optimal.
SewerNet Optimizer™ is the only software in the market that can create “truly optimal” risk-based network-level renewal plans for municipal sewer networks on a segment level (manhole to manhole). Multi-year segment-level replacement and lining project lists are defined to optimize allocation of renewal funds while maximizing network-level condition improvement and minimizing risk of sewer failure. The software implements advanced algorithms to predict sewer deterioration, analyze risk levels, evaluate lifecycle costs, and to perform trade-off analysis between various planning scenarios.
WaterNet Optimizer™ enables water utilities to develop optimal risk-based network-level multi-year renewal plans that identify the most appropriate compromise of pipe replacement and rehabilitation options while maximizing network-level condition, minimizing risk of breaks, and meeting financial constraints and utility-specific renewal policies. The software implements advanced algorithms to quantitatively evaluate lifecycle costs and benefits of alternative renewal options and to assess the impact of funding levels and renewal policies on the network’s condition and risk measures.
