ArcFM is a custom app built on top of ESRI by Miner and Miner in early 90’s. It was later bought by Schnider Electric. It was built with Power, Water, and Gas utilities in mind so there are very specific tools built to handle those things. The logical network is built on top of ESRI’s geometric network that lets customers do instant tracing. They can click on a single wire or fuse on a pole and do an upstream or downstream trace and it will select all the wires, switches, transformers, etc. that are upstream or downstream from that spot, highlight them on the map, and select them for further reporting. It does this in a few seconds using the most up to date data about which switches or valves are open or closed.
It can trace up the wires from those call locations to see where they common wire or device is upstream of them and create an incident to send a crew on the map.
