The purpose of the project was to identify methods and processes which can be used for:
Achieving decreased outage costs;
Providing meaningful and efficient performance measures; and
Enhancing communications between operations, maintenance and senior management.
Value to Electric Cooperatives
An Outage Planning Maturity Matrix (OPMM) was created to describe the best practices of the outage planning process of electricity companies. The outage planning process has been divided into three main phases:
Long term (e. g. beyond the current year)
Short term (e. g. within the current year)
After the fact evaluation (post analysis)
