PAMS – NHHDC (Non Half Hourly Data Collection)

Salient have developed PAMS-NHHDC, within Salient’s PAMS applications framework, to deliver all of the required business processes and interfaces that must be assured by Industry qualified NHHDC (Non Half Hourly Data Collector) metering agent companies or by vertically aligned functional groups within Supply companies.

The Business/Service/Contract Model configuration at the heart of PAMS-NHHDC drives the fully automated executions of targeted and sequenced business rules that, for example :-

The automation of business rule driven procedures to complete steady state NHHDC end-to-end business processes and anomaly interventions serves to deliver the ‘management by exception’ design goal shared across all Salient system designs. Examples of anomaly/stall/breakdown interventions that can be handled automatically within PAMS-NHHDC include :-

PAMS-NHHDC is built within Salient’s Generic Design Framework (GDF), providing extensive and flexible data reporting, report drills and data maintenance facilities. Design model data configuration and industry approved portfolio data maintenance facilities, together with superior and configurable business process status and portfolio data reporting and navigation are all provided via GDF facilities. Additionally, GDF enables the configurable positioning of ‘button’ driven initiations of approved intervention actions at report data presentations. Candidate data at a report may be selected to identify the targets for subsequent button driven intervention or appropriate action. Comprehensive manual intervention facilities further include the ability to create ad-hoc meter read requests and manually submit meter read results.

PAMS-NHHDC technical design, functional design and attractive licence fee costs combine to assure the best returns on investment and lowest costs of ownership (including low administrator costs) available in the market.

In addition to managing all of the required data flow interfaces between NHHDC agents and other BSC parties across Electralink’s Data transfer Network, PAMS-NHHDC will manage the data interfaces required between the NHHDC agent and possible multiple NHHDR agents and systems. Bespoke bi-directional interfaces can be accommodated very quickly as required. PAMS-NHHDC interfaces directly to Salient’s PAMS-NHHDR and RMS MWM solutions and robust interfaces to existing client work management systems or to AMR facilities have been delivered to meet client requirements.
