Organization of the FORUM 2011
Please send us your proposals for the discussion topics!
One received already is on "survey" or "benchmarking" proposes a workshop:
"Substation maintenance policy survey" at our fall FORUM.
Many of you participated in various surveys and benchmarks and know the cost and efforts required to collect data.
At the same time you know the amount of estimation used for those surveys - not making it very reliable.
Let us do it differently - without a lot of work and data crunching - but, in two steps.
We would like to propose a Workshop - for 3-4 hours in the fall during the FORUM. There, we would fill in a spreadsheet of actions for various components. This would make a simple comparison and analysis of existing policies.
But, before that, at our Executive meeting this March - we hope, discussing your ideas and proposals we could define this spreadsheet - and wait for data to be entered in the fall.
This way you could see very clearly where differences take effect, and therefore evaluate costs
It might extend over a longer period of time if the interest is there.
