Capabilities and Features

After the development and success of RBDMS Classic larger states started to express interest in using the product. The developers along with the Technical Committee worked together to develop a more normalized data structure to accommodate the larger data sets and to enhance data retrieval. This new data structure coupled with a customized .Net front end is designed to provide increased speed and better capabilities. The RBDMS team recognized that the existing administrative function in Classic were insufficient for continuing development and created a new administrative dashboard tool. With the new WinAdmin the security can be configured through defined system roles and user profiles. The same application is used both within agency offices and for field inspection. The result provides immediate access to data for purposes of area trend analyses, well and mine history tracking (ownership, bonding, permitting, location, construction, inspection, production, and plugging/ restoration), compliance monitoring, and complaint adjudication. Other functionality offers the following capabilities:

  • Built-in utilities automate paper-based accordion ("tickler") file functions, allowing users can select multiple records to assign status and status dates.
  • Highly configurable security is set to meet agency-specific data confidentiality and user-access rules.
  • A full-featured reporting module uses the same templates for the desktop and the Web interfaces.
  • The Permit module automates workflows, review task monitoring, and payment tracking.
  • Flexible grouping options allow association of facilities into sites of user-specified types for regulatory purposes.
  • Automatic date and change tracking.
  • Hearing schedules and outcomes can be tracked and reported.
