Allen is a power operations center inspector. Regardless of the weather, a typhoon, heavy rain, burning sun or severe winter, every day he takes a thick document to go to hospitals, factories, schools, shopping malls, residential areas to record important equipment data at the end of each month, Allen collects one month of data to provide to a data handler to make the monthly report, and archive it to a document library which already have the mountains of documents.
This is a heavy snowy day. The operation and maintenance center has received another complaint about a factory’s recent unstable power supply. This month, it has received dozens of complaints about power problems. Manager Brown can only assign Allen to check the problems of the power distribution room in such bad weather. If Allen cannot solve the problems on site, he can only copy back some measured data and let the engineer and the leader discuss the fault cause. At present, such a situation is common in the power industry, which is also a pain point in the traditional industry.
