Improve performance, increase power

RMS comprises an integrated set of tools put together to maximize energy production, increase availability, control energy losses and improve overall operational performance with direct impact on business revenues:

Monitor
Designed to assist both managers and field teams on-the-go. Combines the best of both worlds, with real-time monitoring of the portfolio with key business operational indicators, easily accessible through a web browser or mobile app (IoS and Android).

Analyze
Designed for analysts, to help them quickly understand the root causes of problems, improve efficiency with power curve comparisons and visualise trends in production. Provides a global overview of portfolio performance.

Operate
Well suited for control rooms where a clear overview of all assets in real time and the shortest time to action are a priority. Includes step-by-step workflows to guide operators, remote control of plants and assets, and intelligent alarm management.

Predict
Helps you extend the lifetime of your assets by anticipating potential faults.

The RMS solution also offers additional toolsets to aid in managing renewables operations, including:

  • Automatic generation and sharing of reports.
  • Operations Planner to plan field activities and track work in progress.
  • Predictive maintenance using machine learning to pin-point possible component faults.

 

Components of CGI's RMS solution

 

How it works

RMS has a user-friendly interface developed using Human-Computer Interaction. The solution was developed using market standards and modern, flexible technologies.

The RMS solution has built-in mechanisms to cater for scalability, micro-services and real-time streaming of KPI calculations.  RMS has a Rest API to provide open and defined interfaces which allows third parties to retrieve information on real-time data from the in-memory database, and historical data through web services. The solution’s Trigger API is based on a publisher / subscriber concept, and allows third-party applications to be notified of data changes. These APIs allow clients to further integrate with other systems and develop new tools.

RMS offers all the advantages of a cutting-edge cloud-based solution. It leverages IoT, supports big data and real-time analytics, and offers agile developments and deployments.

 

How it is delivered

Pay-as-you-go service
RMS can be offered as a subscriber-based cloud service, allowing clients to pay according to the current size of their portfolio and  their choice of modules.  Hosting services can be customized according to service-level requirements of availability, security, location and standards.

On-premise installations
Clients can also opt for an on-premise installation of the solution, if required.

Software maintenance
We offer software maintenance, including error correction and regular releases, including minor and major versions of RMS.

At CGI we conduct annual interviews as part of our annual Voice of our Clients program, to ensure client perspectives are heard and used to refine and improve our services and solutions.
