Title: Fleetwide Monitoring

Fleetwide Monitoring (FWM) is the implementation of applications for monitoring, maintaining and optimizing generation (and other) assets from a centralized location (Hussey, 2010). Fundamentally, FWM involves monitoring assets within a fleet of assets to detect operational and equipment problems earlier enough to mitigate damage, manage risk, identify performance problems, and manage business and market conditions or risks. A key part of FWM involves the use of advanced online monitoring technologies developed in the 1990s and 2000s and first applied in aerospace, transportation, and petrochemical applications. The goal of FWM is intelligent top-down approach to plant maintenance and scheduling. The goal is accomplished by the move toward centralized monitoring and diagnostic centers, the integration of advanced monitoring applications, and continued use of existing monitoring and maintenance technologies. The efforts supporting the goal will be facilitated by emerging standards supporting interoperability of equipment and technologies from multiple vendors.
