NEEScomm Database/Reporting System
NEEScomm will continue to work with the Site Operations Managers to improve reporting requirements, data gathering procedures, and the Site Annual Work Plan Process. It is envisioned that the solution for data gathering and reporting will be the NEEShub. Required data will be submitted via the NEEShub and stored in a centralized database that will take advantage of existing databases (e.g. NEES Project Warehouse) and reporting software will generate reports from the stored data. Such a database will allow Site Operations to better develop reports and to provide up-to-date operational data.
For reference, the system would be similar to the methodology that was proposed at the Site Managers Forum for the AWP process, only broader in scope. I envision that this could be used not only for AWPs, but for various reports (e.g. Quarterly and Annual) as well. Ideally, we would be able to build upon historical project information that is already contained in the project warehouse. If we plan it correctly, I can envision that not only Site Ops, but the Business Office, EOT and IT could benefit from such a system.
