MDMS and the Paradigms of Time

June 2011
POWERGRID International;Jun2011, Vol. 16 Issue 6, p39
The article discusses whether meter data management systems (MDMS) provide equivalent value to support other paradigms of time. It is shown that the storing and billing of monthly reads via the customer information system (CIS) allows the continued use of existing processes for billing, while the receiving and billing of monthly reads by MDMS enables the presence of a single repository for all read data. The costs of MDMS in the paradigms of time should reportedly be weighed with each use.
