  1. Introduction to Logic PAMI-W-0001-02

  2. Introduce the user to the Logic data analytics software, it’s role in the FlexNet system, the features and functions of Logic and the key elements of the user interface. The goal for this module is to: ModuleGoal

  3. Role of Logic in FlexNet System • Logic Feature Overview • Logic User Interface Overview • Logic Dashboards • Using Logic

  4. The Role of Logic in the FlexNet System Section One

  5. Identify the role of Logic in the FlexNet system. • Describe the purpose of a meter data management (MDM) system. • Define the different data types collected in Logic. • Explain the method used by Logic to process meter data. Section One Objectives

  6. The FlexNet System and Logic The Role of Logic in the FlexNet System • Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) system • Reads water, gas and electric meters and supports • One- and Two-way RF transmission (water and gas) • Two-way RF transmission (electric) • Consists of three components • Meters w/SmartPoint Modules (endpoints) • FlexNet Base Station (Antenna/Transceiver) • Regional Network Interface (RNI) - servers, database, software, FlexWare • Role of Logic • Data analytics software • Tracks, stores, validates and manages the data • Web-based user interface

  7. Data Flow The Role of Logic in the FlexNet System FlexNet System Meters with SmartPoint modules (endpoints) Base Station Regional Network Interface(RNI) Servers, Software, & Databases — Oracle or SQL— FlexWare WirelessRF Solid-state Digital AMI Meters Antenna / Transceiver — Gas — Water — Electric Logic Software

  8. Meter Data Management Overview • Key component of network infrastructure • Imports and processes data • Performs long term data storage • Manages large amounts of data (Smart Grid) • Logic is data analytics software that goes beyond the core features of an MDM to include a • Billing interface to validate and export billing information • Data reporting, tracking and analysis • Customized user roles and menus • Highly configurable interface • The Role of Logic in the FlexNet System

  9. Data Collection Process The Role of Logic in the FlexNet System • Meter Read Data is collected, validated and stored in preparation for billing, tracking and analysis • Logic was designed to handle this immense volume of meter, interval and operational data

  10. Three Data Types Collected in Logic The Role of Logic in the FlexNet System

  11. Register Read vs. Interval Read The Role of Logic in the FlexNet System Register Reads (24 hour period) 400 GAL Interval Reads (4 Hour Intervals) 75 30 20 50 = 400 2012/06/01 08:00:00 2012/06/01 00:00:00 2012/06/02 00:00:00 2012/06/01 20:00:00 2012/06/1616:00:00 2012/06/01 04:00:00 gal

  12. Validation, Estimation and Editing (VEE) Process The Role of Logic in the FlexNet System • Failed • Outside acceptable range • Estimate, Edit or Accept

  13. Which of the following best describes the role of Logic in the FlexNet system? • Logic manages the entire FlexNet system • Logic is the data analytics software • Logic is the software controlling the antennas • Logic is a network server that stores meter data

  14. True or False? A meter data management system performs long term data storage and management for large amounts of data. True

  15. Match the term on the left with the definition on the right. • Interval Read • Register Read • Meter Event b • __ Actual meter value • __ Irregular meter occurrence • __ Usage between two points of time c a

  16. What is the flow of data through the VEE process? • Data Load > Estimating & Editing > Validation > Processed • Estimation & Editing > Data Load > Validation > Processed • Validation > Estimation & Editing > Data Load > Processed • Data Load > Validation > Estimation & Editing > Processed

  17. Logic Features Overview Section Two

  18. List the five key features of Logic. • Identify which system features are configurable in Logic. • Recognize the function of My Menu. • Name two reports used in data analysis. • Following this section, you should be able to: Section Two Objectives

  19. Five Key Features of Logic Logic Features Overview

  20. Key Feature: Monitoring Meter Health and Performance Logic Features Overview • Valuable tool for monitoring meters • View real time meter status • Historical meter usage • Critical information in responding to leaks • Aids in optimizing performance • Reporting • Information (data) tracking and analysis

  21. Reporting Categories Logic Features Overview • Meter Exceptions – meters missing reads or reporting irregular consumption values • Meter Reads – meter read status (pass/fail) • Meter Events – any meter events • Communication – non-communicating meters • Conservation – water meters reporting exceptional consumption values • Billing – rate plan comparison

  22. Reporting: Maps View Logic Features Overview • Interactive map view displays meters and collectors (base stations) geographically • Display • Current meter status • Communication issues

  23. Key Feature: Validating and Exporting Billing Logic Features Overview

  24. Key Feature: Performing System Configuration Logic Features Overview Logic

  25. Key Feature: Analyzing Meter Data Logic Features Overview • Numerous reports for data analysis • Analysis assists utility companies in: • Forecasting and planning • Calculating and reducing loss • Evaluating rate plans • Identifying violators

  26. Commonly Used Reports Logic Features Overview • Meters Missing Register Reads • High Water Usage (Conservation) • Continuous Consumption (Leaks) • Rate Impact Analysis
