AVL/MWM Project History (con’t)

  • June 17, 2010 PSE presentation of
    ‘Strategic Plan - Mobile Work Management
    and Automatic Vehicle Location’
     Cellular-based AVL/MWM system is a “bridge
      technology “
  • PSE proposal to manage the RFP
    procurement project - $17, 500
    Standards Committee decision to handle

    Committee):
       Vendor or self hosted
       Satellite vs. cellular triangulation
       GSM/CDMA/Both
       Proprietary hardware
       Map Viewing
       Map Viewer Integration on users maps
       MultiSpeak compliance
       OMS Integration
       Initial costs
       Annual recurring costs

• 6 page document titled “Request For
  Proposal To Provide An AVL Solution”

• 10 vendors received a request on
  September 13, 2010
      Sage-Quest
      Clevest               No response
      Teletrac           Xora

                           AVL/MWM Benefits
   Employee Safety
     Ø   Safety timer alerts
     Ø   Safety device monitoring alerts
   Better response to R.O.P.E. events
   Optimize dispatching & shorten outage response time
   Line inspection records
   Fuel cost savings:
     Ø   Reduced mileage
     Ø   Idling
   Reports/documentation:
     Ø   “Bread Crumb” reports
     Ø   Power Take-Off time is recorded / documented
     Ø   Vehicle miles driven are recorded / documented
     Ø   Accurate documentation for off-road tax reporting
   Geo-Fencing
                           Thoughts

We have been working as a committee on the premise
that if we could work together as a large group (DPC
and all 25 member cooperatives) we could realize many
benefits. Some of these benefits include:
    not “recreating the wheel”
    demonstrating the 6th Cooperative Principle – “cooperation
     among cooperatives”
    assisting Dairyland with technology projects by designing
     once for all and not (potentially) 25 different times
Of course, the one big benefit would be the overall cost
reduction of a project through a quantity purchase (and
in other areas). We have seen this happen in this
project.
                                          Potential Savings
For one cooperative to go AVL alone they received a quote for 15 vehicles
for the following:
      First year costs = $ 70,110.00
    Annual recurring =    $ 7,300.00

Compared to the proposal just received (adjusted for 15 vehicles):
   First year costs = $ 33,000.00
   Annual recurring = $ 4,200.00

First year cost savings = $40,210.00 per Co-op
                 or over $1M combined for all 25 dist. Co-ops

Annual recurring cost savings = $3,100.00 per Co-op
               Recommendations

 Standards Committee:
   AVL/MWM     System Standard:
    Use a cellular based system as a
    “bridge technology”
    Clevest Solutions Inc. is the
    “vendor of choice”
 Motion approved by PP&SO:
  “DMA    encourages it’s members to
    adopt the recommendations of the
    Standards Committee for AVL
    technology deployment”
