Statement of Qualifications

Software Patents Related to O&M Cost and GADS Reliability Benchmarking

  • U.S. Patent 7,447,611 - Power Generation Performance Analysis System and Method 
    A system and method is described herein that includes a software-based functionality to assess the relationship between reliability, operational, maintenance and plant betterment activities and to determine the frontier of efficient spending and other measures of performance to achieve a level of reliability that is based on data from units of similar design and performance.
  • U.S. Patent 7,941,296 - Benchmarking and Gap Analysis System and Method 
    A computer-implemented method is provided for creating a peer unit and comparing that peer unit to a target unit in order to determine the difference in performance between the target unit and a peer unit. The peer unit is a hypothetical construct of user-defined performance variables whose values are determined based on outstanding performing units in a user-defined group. This comparison allows the user to assess what parameters of the target unit should be changed in order to improve overall performance.
  • U.S. Patent 8,050,889 - Performance Analysis System and Method 
    A system and method is described herein that includes a software-based functionality to assess the relationship between reliability, operational, maintenance and plant betterment activities and to determine the frontier of efficient spending and other measures of performance to achieve a level of reliability that is based on data from units of similar design and performance.
  • U.S. Patent 8,055,472 - Performance Analysis System and Method 
    A system and method is described herein that includes a software-based functionality to assess the relationship between reliability, operational, maintenance and plant betterment activities and to determine the frontier of efficient spending and other measures of performance to achieve a level of reliability that is based on data from units of similar design and performance.
  • U.S. Patent 8,060,341 - Performance Analysis System and Method 
    A system and method is described herein that includes a software-based functionality to assess the relationship between reliability, operational, maintenance and plant betterment activities and to determine the frontier of efficient spending and other measures of performance to achieve a level of reliability that is based on data from units of similar design and performance.
