electronic Work Request (eWR)
The DataGlance eWR (minor maintenance) mobile solution provides a streamline method to perform minor maintenance activities.
Both the Institute of Nuclear Power Operations (INPO) and the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) recommend the use of minor maintenance activities to lower the cost of maintenance.
INPO 05-004 “Guidelines for the Conduct of Maintenance at Nuclear Power Stations” released in January of 2015 “incorporates guidance as defined in the industry’s Cumulative Impact initiative.” This revision “stresses maximizing the use of minor maintenance processes and the assignment of single-person tasks to improve the efficiency of maintenance.”
Industry and utility specific guidance is already in place to identify which maintenance activities qualify to be worked using the minor maintenance process.
In November of 2015, EPRI released Technical Report 3002005363, “Improving the Execution and Productivity of Maintenance with Electronic Work Packages – A Mobile Work Management Initiative”. This report states that “FIN teams are well positioned to utilize eWP devices to optimize minor maintenance. eWPs can be used to quickly develop, implement and close minor maintenance eWPs (or minor work orders) by FIN (Fix It Now) team members.”
Industry and utility specific guidance is already in place to identify which maintenance activities qualify to be worked using the minor maintenance process. The minor maintenance work flow process is significantly different from the standard work package work flow process. Consequently, DataGlance has created a eWR – minor maintenance solution specifically designed to meet the needs of this from of maintenance activity.
As with the DataGlance eWP solution, the baseline eWR solution can configure to meet specific business process requirements. Both the eWP and eWP solutions are designed to work seamlessly together and use the same user interfaces.
