  • Requirements gathering (24 hours included; 8-hour increments afterwards)
  • Business rules for device lifecycle management: Business rules control the correct flow of devices through the entire shop and field processes provide corrective guidance to operators for commonly occurring errors
  • Multi-site workstation alerts: Trigger visual (and optionally audible) alerts set up for special conditions to prompt operators to take specific actions.
  • Removal reading verification: Verify removal readings from CSS by comparing against the KWH readings from shop test boards to prevent data entry error.
  • Firmware and program ID version tracking:

    • Valid Program ID and Firmware Versions over effective date ranges are maintained for each specific meter group

    • Firmware updates are seamlessly integrated into the overall shop process, with operators being notified about outdated versions and reminded to update to valid versions

    • Auto-generate future versions to be queued up to be available during the configured period of time
  • Obsolete device tracking: Automated alerts triggered by configurable conditions to flag out and prevent obsolete devices and from passing specific points through the process.
  • Device ID reservation: Configurable reserved ranges of device unique identifiers (Company Numbers, Badge Numbers) for each device manufacturer are saved in the database and are validated when new devices are added
  • Install hold: Configurable control of removed devices being processed prior to completion of billing system “paperwork”
  • Mass retirement file import: Bulk retirement of devices by range or file.
  • Missing device support: Detailed declaration that keeps the missing devices in locked-down condition until found or final retirement.
  • Generic device support: Define serialized devices that are unique to the utility as defining native devices.
  • Retired device: Retire devices at configurable points in the workflow process with required retirement data, unretire accidental retires and archive aged-out retired devices.
  • Purged device: Archive device and test data for devices purged from the primary records with warnings if the devices are reloaded. Archive test data that has been deleted.
  • AMI device support:

    • Support for multiple AMR/AMI device types simultaneously, each with their own data and validation definitions

    • Multiple associated AMR/AMI devices for Gas and Electric meters

    • Lifetime history of all meter/AMI associations and disassociations

    • AMI devices may be purchased and stocked as individual devices prior to association

Pains and Gains

- Pains Addressed

  • Firmware update logs keep users informed and ensure quick diagnosis of billing or data issues
  • Automated alerts and visual cues for special conditions, reducing the likelihood of mishandling devices.
  • Obsolete device tracking and device ID reservation features prevent mistakes like overlapping or duplicate company numbers, ensuring accurate tracking and reducing errors
  • Billing errors due to mis-keyed removal readings are more likely to be caught as soon as the meter is tested

+ Gains Unlocked

  • Purpose-built workstations extend utility processes to field operations
  • Improve device tracking and monitoring throughout the entire shop and field processes 
  • Increase productivity by processing and testing the "hung paperwork" devices while preventing shipment back out of the meter shop 

Cost Avoidance-       + Value Adds

  • The exact state of a device is clearly identified at all times, which helps to prevent loss, maximize asset value and boost asset utilization.
  • Improve operational efficiency and productivity by automating manual tasks and streamlining processes.
  • Automated alerts reduce the risk of mishandling devices, extending asset life and ensuring that your assets are maintained cost-effectively.
