Software for Power Plants

Automate Crew Scheduling and Emergency Responses

Power Generation plants have a great deal of responsibility that requires specific scheduling of various skilled experts to keep plants running safely.

Filling crews and having an emergency preparedness plan is critical to keeping energy flowing and communities up and running. Automating crew call out and scheduling with ARCOS software solution is helping many power plants to save time and money while reducing risk. Learn how in this case study and our business case showing how it pays for itself- saving money and improving.

Power plants face pressure to execute contracts and conduct operations at the lowest costs. Find out how ARCOS can help to improve operational efficiency by reducing labor costs and keeping personnel focused on their core tasks instead of making repeated phone calls for crew assembly.

Minimizing Replacement Power

Power plants must maintain generation output and minimize load reductions or de-rates to maximize revenue. Coal pulverizer breakdowns, boiler tube leaks, and other problems must be addressed quickly to prevent avoidable revenue leakage. The ARCOS solution plugs revenue leaks by minimizing downtime and reducing the amount of replacement power to be purchased.

Managing Labor Agreements and Compliance

Ideally, you want to minimize grievances and improve morale, while generating more productivity from your workforce. ARCOS web-enabled software reduces callout related grievances by enforcing labor contract compliance and equalizing overtime opportunities—helping to improve productivity.

Optimizing Power Plant Staffing Levels

Power plants must maintain critical staffing levels, or face fines from the FERC and NRC. ARCOS addresses staffing levels through a centralized scheduling system, and with real-time alerts of staffing issues, and automating the callout process to fill shifts.

Emergency Preparedness and Response

Maintaining readiness to react to natural disasters or terrorist threats is critical. The ARCOS solution improves readiness and speeds communications through its centralized automated response system and mass notification capabilities.

The Business Case for Automation

ARCOS pays for itself through the reduction of hard costs alone. When soft costs are added, the decision to go with ARCOS is one of the easiest (and most profitable) ones you will ever make. The ARCOS suite is highly scalable, and will benefit your plant whether it is large or small. ARCOS is one of the only systems you will ever implement that will be up and running in less than three months, demonstrate real ROI, and result in positive cash savings year over year.
