The Plant Data Management System (PDMS) is an analytical database that is used to manage and analyze engineering, maintenance, construction, and surveillance activities on the facility’s electrical system. PDMS provides intuitive user interface that makes it easy to manage and control changes that are made to data that is as-built and in-design. It further analyzes the data to determine if the data meets customer design criteria.

PDMS features a continuously updating analysis system to ensure the highest quality as-built and in-design configurations. PDMS identifies where existing conditions, or proposed changes, conflict with the approved design criteria. This feature results in less dependency on personnel’s memory and technical knowledge. As new problems and potential conflicts are identified, pro-active and informed changes can be implemented to improve compliance with safety, constructability, quality, maintenance, operational, standards, specifications, and procedures.

The following list represents just a small subset of the analyses that PDMS can perform:

  • Voltage Drop
