Transmission Work Management
Product & Service Offerings
Business-Focused Strategic Planning
Utilities are quickly finding that transmission assets in the deregulated environment are a challenge to operate effectively and efficiently, but also an opportunity to improve earnings. Traditionally, transmission lines and substations were part of the energy delivery make up—not a stand-alone, for-profit business. That has now changed. Utilities vary greatly in what they are doing with transmission: operating it as usual, creating a separate TransCo, adding lines for load requirements, selling capacity, or building merchant lines to capture generation cost differentials. Yanco Associates works with your utility and your vision to develop the required strategic business processes and system plans.
Transmission Work Management Strategic Plan
Based on the identified requirements of all the stakeholders and a clear understanding of the utility transmission business as it exists today and needs to exist in the next several years, we develop a multi-year strategy for the required systems. Our solutions combine people, processes, and systems in a synergistic relationship. Yanco Associates believes the processes and the systems should facilitate employees meeting all strategic goals and requirements for both internal and external customers.
Strategic Design and Implementation
The identification of issues that obstruct the utility or business unit from meeting its goals is the first step in gaining and maintaining a competitive business advantage. The next step is the implementation of the systems, providing the required change management support, and working through the issues. To facilitate this process, Yanco Associates has developed tools, techniques, and guides that allow the development and assembly of functional and technical requirements for the processes and systems that will support those processes. Based on these requirements, our team also develops complete RFPs for the required services, response systems for RFP evaluations, and implementation support and management.
System Integration Planning
Utility reality is that legacy systems exist and need to be incorporated in a “go-forward” plan. SCADA and interchange meter readings need to be incorporated in the network model and stored for future load-flow analysis. Federal, state, and local filings for new lines require a central repository for “response control.” Land management, vegetation management, and coordination with local distribution companies all require a plan and process path in the system. Our strategic plan focuses on current system capabilities, business requirements, plans for new systems, as well as the specific project focus. We offer the development of an integrated business process and systems strategic plan and detailed design.
