Business Intelligence Analysis

Engineers all over the world are concerned about saving their company money. One of the main ways they are able to do this is through Business Intelligence (BI) analysis.

BI is the use of software and other tools and applications to analyze a company’s raw data. BI data analysis helps companies make strategic business decisions. A computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) can be a critical tool for gathering and analyzing this information. In fact, Mapcon Technologies, Inc. has incorporated a tool within their CMMS specifically for this, called the MAPCON Business Intelligence Reporting Tool, or MBIRT. (Read More)

Are Chiller Pumps Hiking Up Your Energy Bills?

“Pump operation accounts for 20% of all energy use in Europe”

Once a pump system has been installed, it’s tempting to leave it to its own devices. The equipment can run just fine for years without much observation. But inefficient chiller pumps can be a prime cause of waste: burning energy and putting a premium on your bills.

“It’s not a commonly known fact, but pump operation accounts for 20% of all energy use in Europe,” says Bradley Ford, of pump experts Dura Pump. “And it’s true that chiller pumps are some of the worst culprits for inefficiency. We’ve made it something of a mission to make people aware of that, and to help companies cut that waste right down.” (Read More)
