GasnetMaestro: Natural Gas Infrastructure Management Software

GasnetMaestro is an application which enables natural gas distribution networks to be managed in a rule-based way.

Data entry is based on predefined rules. In case of emergency, users can easily see which valves to close. Managers can see the big picture of their networks’ inventory in terms of pipe characteristics and fittings. The customer relations department can see which buildings are served, and which will be served next year.
