Our team has developed an application that cost-effectively enables our customers to achieve best practices which will minimize outage schedules, reduce risks, and lower vendor costs
Santa Fe, NM (PRWEB) September 09, 2015
ep3, creator of targeted software applications for the power industry, recently announced the availability of its Outage Management Metrics (OMM) system. ep3’s OMM helps manage the many tasks involved in an outage – with intuitive, multifaceted tools that allow outage managers to achieve greater efficiency with fewer resources. OMM is one part of ep3’s Quad C® – an advanced software platform for optimizing power plant pre-commercial and acquisitions, maintenance and engineering, asset management, and operations activities.
ep3’s OMM continuously improves the outage planning process by gathering user input and building organizational intelligence, making subsequent outages more efficient and effective. The hosted software easily transfers, ensuring that critical institutional knowledge remains with the asset.
ep3’s inception was driven by its founders’ decades of energy industry experience. “I have faced the same challenges that every plant manager confronts during an outage,” says Malcolm Hubbard, Director of Operations and Customer Support at ep3. “Existing software is cumbersome to use and ultimately doesn’t address the needs of both plant and asset managers. Our team has developed an application that cost-effectively enables our customers to achieve best practices which will minimize outage schedules, reduce risks, and lower vendor costs.”
According to Dwayne Boyer, O&M Manager at New Athens Generating Company, “Most outage software platforms have critical shortcomings that delay operations and elevate both risks and costs. ep3 brings extensive hands-on experience and a unique software design approach to an age-old process.”
Critical Component Management (CCM), the second application in the Quad C® suite, will be released in the third quarter of 2015. CCM uses field-capable tablet photo apps to allow for efficient and accurate real time collection of necessary asset and parts data, such as maintenance history, validation of components position, and unit and associated outage ID.
