LiveData Utilities RTI Asset ID Manager (RTI AIM) allows grid operators to automatically keep OMS, SCADA, and RTI Server systems up to date with new devices soon after they are installed. When using RTI Asset ID Manager, adding new devices to your grid no longer involves manual registration of new devices in your SCADA, GIS, and Outage Management System (OMS).
RTI Asset ID Manager coordinates the loading of configurations across various OT (Operations Technology) management systems and ensures that all of your systems remain synchronized. With RTI Asset ID Manager, add a new data point to your SCADA system1 and to your OMS, and the measurement will be automatically connected from the SCADA system through the RTI Server to your OMS. RTI Asset ID Manager simplifies management of your smart grid by automatically generating measurement tables for your OMS, batch files for the RTI Server, and exception reports when anomalies occur. RTI Asset ID Manager eliminates the need for manual file manipulation to maintain associations between SCADA and Outage Management System when using RTI Server.Benefits of using RTI Asset ID Manager include:
RTI Asset ID Manager manages data point definitions between SCADA, RTI Server, and Oracle Utilities or CGI OMS – automating the necessary steps to generate and load OMS SQL tables and RTI Server batch files. RTI Asset ID Manager generates exception reports for definition mismatches across systems and can be run in fully automatic or human assisted mode. Human assisted mode allows operators to check each step of the asset ID generation process.
When new devices are brought online, RTI Asset ID Manager automatically configures RTI Server and your NMS to incorporate new devices.
RTI Asset ID Manager automates the maintenance of relationships among SCADA, OMS, and field devices, and documents anomalies by automatically producing exception reports. By monitoring configurations for tag changes or new devices, Asset ID Manager is able to eliminate the need for operators to manually updates files on OMS, RTI Server, and SCADA systems.
In instances where a rich naming scheme is employed for SCADA data points, RTI Asset ID Manager is able to query the SCADA system via ICCP to automatically configure measurements in Oracle and CGI NMS systems without needing to push data translation files between systems.
