OCC developed a custom resource planning application for National Grid Gas to support their matrix-management. The Workplan system runs on the corporate intranet and was built to support existing staff working practices, realising the benefit of enhanced coordination with negligible training or disruption.
The OCC LiveLoad application calculates the physical deformation on an overhead power line caused by suspending a maintenance trolley on the cable. Working on live cables from a trolley placed by helicopter will allow the National Grid Maintenance Delivery team to achieve significant efficiency savings.
OCC worked with AbD serotec to produce new software that allows AbD Serotec's technical staff to track the various components of their products and provides an automatic certificate holding all the relevant data.
OCC developed GLOIN, software with enables National Grid to predict a buried cable's tempereature and capacity by numerical modelling.
GLOIN is used by engineers to estimate when and where a limiting load will be reached under given sets of circumstances.
The GLOIN forms part of the Circuit Thermal Monitor, a crucial component in the national control room that monitors buried cables nationwide.
OCC has supplied software models to National Grid for over 10 years. The OHL Rating project delivered enhanced line rating capability, improved integration with Asset Management’s other functions and better application support. OCC also created facilities for data export to the National Grid Critical Unit Program.
OCC developed an interactive web-based tool for Sport England to help organizations plan their investment into sporting facilities. This involved the development of a Geographical Information System (GIS) that shows the profile of people living in different parts of the UK.
OCC has investigated data to discover patterns using data mining analysis and investigating AI-based solutions. Read about the results of this research in our white paper on Incident Clustering and Text analysis.
