Testing & Support
AMI & Meter Engineering Support
In addition to Meter Services, TESCO also provides AMI Support. These services enhance our capability of fulfilling any metering service or support a Utility may need. If what you need involves metering, we can handle the job!
Equipment Specifications and Selection
The Equipment or System Selection Process starts with an evaluation of existing operations and the development of a System Requirements document. This document is then used to identify potential suppliers and solicit bids for the equipment or system. TESCO then works with the client to evaluate and select the most appropriate equipment or system.
Facility relocation and dealing with its impact on production can be an extremely risky endeavor for any company. TESCO will develop a new facility layout along with a detailed schedule and coordinate a move plan to minimize the impact on day to day operations.
Meter Shop Layout
TESCO provides meter shop layout services to electric, gas and water meter shops. We have significant experience in the application of Good Manufacturing practices and Lean Manufacturing principles to manufacturing operations and have successfully applied these to numerous meter shop operations throughout the country.
TESCO provides complete project management services for implementing operational improvements including scheduling, equipment procurement, installation management, and project cost control. TESCO not only can develop process, equipment, and layout improvements but can help you implement them quickly and efficiently.
Quality Systems are developed to monitor and continually improve the performance of key processes. Eliminating process variability is critical to developing predictable results. TESCO can analyze your meter shop operations and develop a plan of action to eliminate errors and defects. Six Sigma techniques can be used to analyze process performance, to understand process capability, and to develop solutions to eliminate variability. TESCO can assist in building the foundation for continual improvement by eliminating the sources of quality problems.
Site Service Plans
TESCO equipment is built tough and made to last. They’re designed with the technician’s point of view in mind – lightweight, rugged & completely reliable. However, sometimes things can wear out… even on the best equipment!
TESCO has developed in-service meter test plans for electric, gas, and water utilities. We have also assisted several Utility Commissions in re-writing their in-service meter testing regulations. Whether your needs are developing a new program or developing a one-time program to research a particular performance issue we can develop a plan for you.
Meter Laboratory Services
We at TESCO are dedicated to providing quality, accurate, accredited calibrations by delivering outstanding customer service that is consistent and unsurpassed. Your test equipment, watt-hour standards and transformers must be calibrated regularly.
Upholding high quality standards, retaining accreditations, and preserving equipment accuracy depend on up-to-date, accredited calibrations for your equipment.
Meter Shop Services
Working with a thin budget? There are times when new equipment just isn’t an option for some customers. That’s why we offer the opportunity to rebuild older equipment – both TESCO & NON-TESCO equipment. It’s both a cost effective method and a solution to your testing needs.
