Jacobs has launched Pavy, a proprietary cloud-based platform, that will provide advanced asset management of airfields, the company reported on Wednesday. Pavy completed a successful trial period, and will now be integrated into airports to manage airfield pavements.
"With Pavy, our new cloud-based platform, airports around the globe can better plan pavement investments and prioritize critical interventions," said Jacobs People & Places Solutions Senior Vice President Europe and Digital Strategies Donald Morrison.
Jacob’s Pavy is a customizable platform that will advance airport control by enabling strategic, data-led decisions about airfield investment. Pavy will enable airports to leverage their data to build stronger business cases for additional funding requests.
"Pavy, along with Jacobs' consultation support, aims to provide optimized CapEx spend profiles, client decision support and contribute in future airfield pavement planning,” said Heathrow Airport senior engineer Louise Batts.
By showing where investment will be needed over 5-year periods, Pavy provides a strategic decision enabler by connecting engineering and finance teams to help balance costs, risk and performance.
“Immediate feedback and basic scenario forecasting combined with visual plans, gives Pavy an opportunity to change the field of Airfield Pavement Asset Management. The work Jacobs has done here, and the future of Pavy is really exciting," Batts added.
At Jacobs, we're challenging today to reinvent tomorrow by solving the world's most critical problems for thriving cities, resilient environments, mission-critical outcomes, operational advancement, scientific discovery and cutting-edge manufacturing, turning abstract ideas into realities that transform the world for good.
