CHICAGO, Feb. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- InStep Software, LLC, a leading
provider of real-time software systems and solutions, announced today that
Progress Energy has implemented InStep's PRiSM software to support Progress
Energy's Centralized Performance Monitoring initiative.
InStep's PRiSM technology monitors Progress Energy's entire fleet of
fossil assets to provide advanced early warning notification of potential
equipment problems or failure. PRiSM uses advanced cluster based reasoning
to identify process variations that would be virtually impossible to detect
otherwise. The PRiSM software seamlessly integrates with Progress Energy's
existing historian infrastructure for reliable and secure access to plant
InStep Software President John Kalanik says, "Progress Energy is
recognized in the utility industry as a leader in reliably operating their
fleet of power plants. We are very pleased to have such a key role in
supporting this initiative."
Progress Energy's Program Manager Bernie Cook says, "InStep's PRiSM
product has become a critical part of our Fossil Monitoring and Diagnostic
Center which is integrating several advanced diagnostic tools focused at
early detection of equipment problems. Prism's ability to quickly develop
models has allowed us to reduce our fleet implementation plan from a matter
of years to a matter of months."
