A direct facility for importing (from Excel) multiple reservoir profiles over variable time periods is provided in the Maros RAM analysis software. The Equipment Table view facility provides the ability to manipulate failure mode data in an Excel like interface. It allows a global view of all the equipment and related failure modes below any item in a model or a direct view of the failure modes related to an individual equipment item.
It provides support for sorting by:
- Multiple fields
- Outlook style grouping
- Manipulating the layout of the fields
- Copying/pasting cell data
- Copying/pasting failure modes
- Adding/deleting failure modes
- Adding new Equipment Items
The user can simply copy data from Excel and paste into the Equipment Table.
Similar provision is included for specifying demand profiles. Graphical and tabular output that can be easily exported to Microsoft Office includes production statistics, efficiency statistics, criticality tables (hierarchical), contract shortfalls analysis (size and frequency) and plant shutdown analysis (size and frequency).
In addition, the software includes an Application Programming Interface (API) which allows analysts to code the interaction with any system.
