Tracking Costs of Inefficiencies

DSOM can track the cost of inefficient operations. If energy costs are entered into the system, then DSOM can watch equipment for efficiency; it the equipment drops below an efficient baseline, then the cash register will track the cost of operating in this mode. At a periodicity selected by the facility, reports can be created and sorted by cost to know what events cost the most and where to apply the maintenance funds to best advantage.
