Plan, schedule and execute cost effective plant outagesContact us
Outage Planning & Analytics (OPA) is a unified application to plan, schedule, and execute plant outages. Using comprehensive data, analytics and tools, cross-functional teams can build optimal programs that execute on time. Developed jointly with a leading generation company, OPA directly addresses the goals of minimizing outage costs, duration and revenue loss. OPA is available today for Nuclear Power Generators and will be expanded for other plant types and industries.

Planning starts with preparation. OPA integrates data from any source and system, including eSOMS, EAM/CMMS, ERP, finance, procurement, and engineering to create a comprehensive view and single source of truth spanning all aspects of an outage program. Planning tools and dashboards create composite and drill-down activity views with milestones that provide visibility and clarity across the entire team.
OPA tools help create an optimal master schedule, identify potential risks and improve decision making. Schedule Score Reports provide overall schedule health based on 14 indicator cards covering common pitfalls. Views include critical path, system, discipline, and window, along with historical comparisons and trending. Detailed workforce utilization information helps align labor, tools, and materials to maintain a consistent workload.
OPA dashboards and tools monitor outage task performance and schedule performance indicators, identifying and tracking emerging issues. An array of purpose-built analytics and visualizations provide accurate intelligence and forecasting to allow leaders to make the best real-time decisions with the latest data.
OPA was designed and built in cooperation with a leading nuclear power provider to help reduce and control outage costs and variability across their entire fleet. From analytics, to functionality, security and compliance, OPA reflects the best practices and desired product features of outage managers and executives.
OPA is a subscription service based on the Predix Platform and hosted in the AWS GovCloud. The OPA solution meets US Export Control requirements, including Department of Energy (10 CFR 810), Department of Commerce Export Administration Regulations (EAR), and Department of State International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR).
