By identifying the most impactful deficiencies on your system, PZM practically develops your maintenance budget and capital plan for you.
The PZM algorithm prioritizes deficiencies based on reliability, replacement cost and outage risk. The most critical deficiencies are automatically moved to the top of your list.

Identify the highest risks.
Target your capital and maintenance budget dollars.
Continuously improve your system.
Unidentified problems can cost millions of dollars in lost assets, cause outages and impact reliability, invite costly litigation, and/or cause injury to the general public and your employees.
Any issues and problems found during an inspection is entered into PZM as a deficiency. One of the most powerful features of the PZM inspection program is how it handles deficiencies once they are entered by an inspector.
For reliability risk, PZM uses an innovative PZM Risk Matrix that assesses every deficiency and sorts by the highest reliability risk.
The PZM Risk Matrix combines two factors:
- The Chance of Failure
- The Consequence of Failure
Using these two factors to determine risk... PZM prioritizes which deficiencies to fix first. PZM's deficiency module plans your work for you, and helps managers and field technicians determine where to roll next.
Using PZM, deficiencies can be sorted by area, substation, reliability risk or by asset value.
PZM provides valuable data analytics so field crews can fix the right things at the right time.
PZM Prioritizes Your Deficiencies
The goal with PZM's Deficiency module, is to provide information utilities can act on to make life easier for electrical utility inspectors, engineers and managers.
