In recent years, a variety of external forces have significantly impacted the way power generation companies run their assets and meet business objectives. The industry is facing dramatic market dynamics resulting from changes in fuel prices, growing renewables, and changes in the regulatory environment. Managing power generation plants efficiently is getting tough, it involves challenges in it. Despite having a good ERP or software system in place, power operators still face significant barriers that make it difficult for them to take the right decision at the right time. A lack of asset level visibility — not knowing in advance when problems are about to occur, unplanned downtime, costly and often unnecessary routine preventive maintenance that introduces risk and decreases availability. And most importantly, critical information needed by maintenance technicians, operators, and managers get delayed that may impact reaching their deadlines.
