Following the PZM process has allowed our clients to act on their high-ranking risks and make repairs that directly improve their system reliability.
At PZM, we feel it's not just important to have a good inspection program, but the inspection program should deliver useful information to act on.
Our proprietary inspection process is being utilized by other utilities to provide consistent and proven improvement in their inspection processes.
Utilities are acting on the information to improve their reliability and reduce their liability. Improving reliability and reducing liability requires a consistent process to identify high-risk problems for repair.
The "PZM Risk Matrix" is designed to rank deficiencies found on your system. The assigned rankings are based on the probability that the deficiency will fail and the deficiency consequence if it does fail!
In other words, following the PZM process will help you identify high-ranking risks and make the repairs that directly improve your system's reliability.
High priority safety hazards are ranked for immediate repair; other hazards are ranked based on reliability or asset value metrics. Lower priority deficiencies are also identified for repair as time permits.
PZM is here to support you in delivering safe and reliable electric service.
