Subject: RE: [obix-req] Last use case was truncated
I would add an extension. The Owner of the Facility is unwilling to enter into this shared cost-savings contract with the engineer because he feels that it is unaudtiable and that he will be asked to "share" some wholly imaginary savings with the engineer. The Owner needs transparant access to operating data to be able to independently audit the savings and thereby feel comfortable with the contract. -----Original Message----- From: Peter Manolescue [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org] Sent: Thursday, September 02, 2004 6:21 AM To: email@example.com Subject: [obix-req] Last use case was truncated Here is the last use case which was truncated in the previous e-mail. . The local power utility cannot build any more generating capacity. To prevent outages, it is motivating companies to restrict consumption. An engineering company is interested in a new contract which gives lower prices if they can guarantee that certain levels of power consumption will never be exceeded. However the energy consumption profile of the site varies considerably; one week welding is crucial, the next chemical treatment is essential. The company needs different energy profiles to shed different non-essential loads at different times and under different conditions. By defining different work profiles the facility manager can ensure power is only cut from non-essential activities whilst core production can continue.
