At Southern California Edison (SCE) ITS Informationstechnik Service GmbH (ITS) was subcontracted by General Electric
(GE) to implement the integration of SAP PM with the Smallworld GIS. The main part of the backend integration is the
synchronization of asset data updates from SAP to the GIS. The connectivity of substations on the circuit level is synchronized
in the opposite direction from GIS to SAP. Some of this information is also sent to a third system via SAP PI.
SCE is one of the largest electric utilities in
U.S., serving more than 14 million people
in a 50,000 square-mile area in Central, Coastal
and Southern California, excluding
the City of Los Angeles and certain other cities.
One of SCE's key projects in 2009/2010
was the improvement of their business
processes with the implementation of SAP
PM for the maintenance of SCE's assets.
Formerly DPIS was the system of record for
substations, circuits and their connectivity
hierarchy, and this system was to be decommissioned
after the rollout of SAP PM.
