Requirements Analysis

The inability to incorporate network management into the power industry has resulted in various negative impacts. From the users’ perspective, fault handling procedures are time consuming and the high faults occurrences have resulted in much customer dissatisfaction. Looking from the systems development viewpoint, information on equipments and operation processes are often inaccurate. The lack of system knowledge also results in incorrect judgments made by maintenance staffs, thereby affecting the health of server systems.
