TVA picks Oniqua MRO analytics for inventory optimization

Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) chose Oniqua MRO Analytics, a provider of analytics-based MRO optimization for asset-intensive organizations, to optimize maintenance spares inventories across its operations.

TVA provides wholesale power to 155 municipal and cooperative power distributors, and directly serving 57 large industries and government installations.

TVA generates electrical power for nine million people across an 80,000 square mile territory that includes most of Tennessee and parts of Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina and Virginia. To ensure its ability to supply reliable, competitively priced power, TVA operates fossil-fuel, nuclear and hydroelectric power plants, as well as producing energy from renewable power sources.

OAS leverages intelligent analytics technology to help asset intensive organizations optimize their maintenance and supply chain operations. For inventory optimization, OAS provides greater inventory performance visibility; helps customers optimize consumable and critical spares levels; and enables them to better manage obsolete and surplus stock disposal — key capabilities aligned with leading business drivers for TVA and other supply chain organizations.

TVA will leverage OAS through Oniqua Cloud, and is expected to be in full production by end of 2013.
