Description

Description

In this class we will discuss Seattle City Light's (SCL) current program to update and modernize its construction standards and how this effort has affected the firm's automatic utility design (AUD) project. We will review how this process has impacted SCL's compatible units in its work management system and the industry models (feature classes) maintained in AUD. We will also discuss the drivers for the modernization, the timing considerations related to the current AUD project, and impact of the changes on AUD.
