Proactive Obsolescence Management System (POMS)
A one-stop shop for identification, prioritization, and resolution of station obsolescence, POMS provides quick and easy retrieval of equipment and vendor obsolescence information. Key benefits include early notice of obsolescence issues, improved decision-making capabilities, enhanced analysis of equipment bill of materials prioritization via a top list of obsolescence risks and the opportunity for industry collaboration. POMS allows utilities to integrate obsolescence information into site departments including System Engineering, Work Management, Supply Chain and Procurement Engineering. The POMS Suite consists of:
Configuration Management Interface System (CMIS)
Westinghouse’s CMIS software suite is an industry-proven tool to implement the Engineering Standard Design Process (SDP) per industry procedure IP-ENG-001. This tool supports the nuclear industry by providing a robust, up-to-date software tool for the preparation, review and completion of Engineering Changes. CMIS helps customers to automate the process while enforcing procedural requirements and includes single sign-on, electronic signatures, review workflows and package generation. The CMIS Suite has several bolt-on modules to automate processes in addition to SDP, including:
Equipment Reliability Management System (ERMS)
ERMS is a suite of tools focused on the implementation and optimization of INPO AP-913 with the goal of improving efficiencies and overall equipment reliability. ERMS consists of the following:
Control Room Automation (CORA)
Westinghouse’s CORA suite is focused on the automation of Operator Logs and Operator Rounds and consists of two main products with AutoLog and AutoTour:
AutoLog is a scalable, automated solution that meets the needs of the nuclear industry in maintaining logs for safety and environmental compliance.
AutoTour is a platform that reduces the time and effort involved in gathering field data and supports equipment health management on high-value assets.
