If then, as in the case of large energy supply companies, several test teams, departments and processes are involved, or entire asset fleets need to be tested, good planning, close collaboration, and a clear overview are required. The obtained data also needs to be as automated as possible integrated into the existing data infrastructure of ERP and maintenance systems.
