CHICAGO, June 3 /PRNewswire/ -- InStep Software LLC, a leading provider
of real-time software systems and solutions, announced today that InStep
has teamed with the Exelon Corporation to win the 2008 nuclear reliability
Top Industry Practice ("TIP") award for excellence. The award is based on
the results achieved by Exelon from their use of InStep's PRiSM software
for Centralized Performance Monitoring.
InStep's PRiSM technology monitors Exelon's entire fleet of nuclear
assets to provide advanced early warning notification of potential
equipment problems or failure. With 500 deployed plant equipment computer
models Exelon achieved over $500,000 in avoided equipment and production
losses in the first two months of operation. PRiSM uses advanced cluster
based reasoning to identify process variations that would be virtually
impossible to detect otherwise. The PRiSM software seamlessly integrates
with Exelon's existing historian infrastructure for reliable and secure
access to the plant information.
InStep software President John Kalanik says, "We are most pleased to be
part of this award winning team. This is a great example of how industry
vendors can truly partner with their customers to achieve winning results."
Exelon Corporation is one of the nation's largest electric utilities
with approximately $19 billion in annual revenues. The company has one of
the industry's largest portfolios of electricity generation capacity, with

Exelon distributes electricity to approximately 5.4 million customers in
northern Illinois and Pennsylvania and natural gas to approximately 480,000
customers in the Philadelphia area. Exelon is headquartered in Chicago and
