Implementation of workforce management system with
several aims (Part 1):
Efficiency / Productivity
 Operational excellence / Reduction of operational costs / Cost transparency
 Implementation of workflow-system for systematic, fully standardized and
asset condition oriented maintenance
 Optimal allocation of human and production capacities
 Optimal distribution of working orders related to priorities, geographical
location, optimal time reaction in case of outage / failure

Implementation of workforce management system with
several aims (Part 2):
Regulation / Grid Quality / Renewal of Grid Assets
 Grid quality: improve SAIFI and SAIDI
 Reduction of critical assets (asset in bad technical conditions) by condition and riskbased maintenance
 Asset operational safety
 High quality and actual data of asset conditions support short and mid-term CAPEX /
OPEX planning
 Reasonable allocation of financial means for asset renewal (CAPEX / OPEX)
 Reduction of numbers of used IT systems (registers of asset conditions, planning of
maintenance activities, ...)
 Standardization of IT landscape (unified integration platform)
Frankfurt (Germany), 6-9 June 2011
Long term preparation for WfM project
Grid Organization
 One grid unit (aprox 250 people) fully responsible for HV/LV :
- HV/LV grid maintenance
- Power failure HV/LV repairs
- Off take management
- 24 x 7 emergency service
Solid IT background

Implemented GIS containing detailed technical records of electricity distribution
devices (VHV, HV and LV devices)

SAP as a source of grid economic data

GIS fully integrated with SAP (GIS is master)
Frankfurt (Germany), 6-9 June 2011
Workforce management as tool for efficient grid services
being implemented
 Grid services operation without IT support, workforce coordination done by daily orders
Status 2008  Necessity to optimize and increase efficiency has led to implementation of work force
management as of 2009
