Over the years, ORMAT has built for itself a sophisticated planning and control system (PCS). The PCS is used daily by hundreds of engineers and other role players while designing, engineering, manufacturing and constructing power plants.
Starting in mid 2004, ORMAT has started a big software development project to replace the PCS by a modern, enhanced web-based system. The new system, called ORMAT Management System (OMS), will replace the existing system while adding important functionality.
ORMAT chose to develop the OMS internally because no commercially available software has been identified as sufficient for ORMAT's requirements and desire to retain its competitive advantage. ORMAT chose Tersus Software to build the OMS due to the short time to market and high flexibility provided by the Tersus Platform.
Prior to starting the major development project, and as a proof of the capabilities of the Tersus Platform, Tersus Software provided ORMAT with two modules, which will later become part of the integrated OMS system:
The goals of the OMS are:
The full OMS system will also include the following modules and capabilities:
All the information is made available for various stakeholders worldwide (operators, site managers, corporate managers, corporate engineers, accountants, and others) through a permissions-based, secure web interface.
The OMS system is in operational use since the middle of 2006, with gradual introduction of new functionality.
