Monitoring and Targeting (M&T) is a simple yet powerful, structured approach to identifying inefficient performance and eliminating waste: monitor what you manage, relate it to the independent variables that influence your energy consumption and set realistic targets.

Optima™ takes M&T to a whole new level, helping you achieve more accurate target setting with a choice of advanced regression analysis, formulae, performance indices, historical comparisons and load profiling. Exception reports highlight waste where consumption exceeds target, helping you monitor your usage immediately and effectively, whilst CUSUM reports show trends in performance and the benefits of energy saving projects. Key Performance Indicators (KPI’s) allow you to benchmark performance using key metrics such as floor area or production figures and produce league tables of the best and worst performers.

With advances in technology, including automatic meter reading and automatic monitoring software, optima™ also provides the option for Automatic Monitoring & Targeting (aM&T). aM&T automatically collects utility data by a wide range of methods including meters, BMS and telemetry systems. This can then be transferred into Optima for analysis and reporting purposes. Optima aM&T brings to your attention any consumptions exceeding targets through exception reports, helping you monitor your usage immediately and effectively. Reports can be distributed electronically either via email or via the internet in Adobe PDF™ or HTML format.
