FEATURES

FLOWCAL Enterprise provides the most robust selection of validation parameters available. Each meter contains more than 150 configurable set-points designed to identify abnormal or erroneous data. These routines utilize several techniques including statistical models (based on meter history), comparisons to minimum and maximum set-points, and comparisons to data of associated meters. All validation violations (“exceptions”) are written to the feature-rich Exception Resolver.

Easily Identify Suspect Data & Flow Anomalies

The FLOWCAL Enterprise Exception Resolver provides a forum for users to quickly review and resolve exceptions. Each message is color-coded according to the severity of the exception. The user has numerous options for sorting and grouping current and historical data. By selecting an exception, users can view the offending data set to quickly evaluate the flow anomalies. The user can choose to edit or ignore the flow anomalies, resulting in an exception change from the unresolved state to either “resolved by user” or “ignored,” retaining a complete audit trail.

Distribution couldn’t be easier when utilizing the built-in Report Scheduler. This function allows users to create standard or custom reports and distribute them at specified intervals, including daily, weekly, and monthly. The distribution mediums include fax, email, network printer, or web posting. This Windows service uses a monitoring function that retains a complete audit trail of successful and unsuccessful distributions including automatic retry capabilities.

In FLOWCAL Enterprise, monthly closes are assisted by the Close Group Scheduler. This Windows service closes meter groupings according to the user-specified schedule. Any modifications performed after closing require a prior period adjustment. The Monthly Close Functions & Service module retains a detailed audit trail for reducing confusion on historical volume reviews.

The security features of FLOWCAL Enterprise are robust and intuitive. All program functions have read, write, edit, delete, and add privileges. An administrator assigns these privileges on a user and/or group basis. Authorization can be granted to an individual user or a member of a group that has access.

Balance your system at the product and component levels for all gas and liquid transactions including continuous batch meters, tickets, truck, rail, and tank movements. When integrating gas and liquids, FLOWCAL Enterprise performs a complete and comprehensive system balance with a hierarchical results display, allowing users the most flexibility when researching gain/loss data.

The FLOWCAL Enterprise Source Quality feature allows for entry and import of more than 200 components, configurable hexane plus properties, density, and S&W%, as well as independent gas quality analysis from on-line gas chromatographs or labs. These components are validated upon receipt, generating exceptions for values detected outside of the user-defined boundaries. Once validated, all batches assigned to the analysis are automatically updated. This one-to-many relationship simplifies edits and associated audit trails, efficiently managing your quality analysis and its application to meter data.

 

FLOWCAL Client/Server gas and liquid measurement software is designed for growing companies with multiple users, or for companies who want to focus on a single database. This version allows for the centralization of the Oracle tables and uses record locking to maintain data integrity.

FEATURES

This versatile gas and liquid measurement software package includes labor saving features that enhance productivity of the measurement analyst. The advanced features of the more robust FLOWCAL Enterprise version can be added as separate modules to enhance the Client/Server capabilities. This flexibility allows companies to scale the system to meet their measurement needs and to expand the application as their needs grow.

Automatically Import Data

Users can schedule FLOWCAL Client/Server to automatically import data for a specific station or an entire system. Upon import, the station/system data is filtered by FLOWCAL’s extensive validation set, flagging any suspect or missing data.

FLOWCAL Client/Server allows users to schedule data exports for periodic posting of desired data. This feature accommodates frequent updates to downstream programs for tasks such as web postings or system balance functions.

FLOWCAL Client/Server has a color-coded graphical user interface to help users identify suspect data or flow anomalies before inspecting the data set. Upon import, this application sorts all events, alarms, and validation flags and presents this data in a user-friendly manner for sorting, printing, and managing. By viewing these import messages, users can quickly identify which hours/days of meter data need to be inspected, and the severity of the warnings regarding flow anomalies.

FLOWCAL Client/Server permits data to be imported from virtually all meter and flow computer manufacturers, either as a group or on a station-by-station basis. Due to product and industry demand, updated and new import drivers are constantly being developed by the SCADA system, meter vendors, and meter manufacturers for use in FLOWCAL.

FEATURES

Historical Purge

The FcDataBoss historical purge module allows users and application administrators to purge data from the Oracle database. Data can be purged regardless of whether it has been finalized, archived, or closed, or whether prior period adjustments have been applied. Purging data to shrink the database enhances performance and maintainability. It also provides the option to easily remove data once the legal retention period has passed.

The Data Transfer module supports the export or import of FLOWCAL data such as meters, sources, and locations for gas and liquids. This module uses an encrypted and secured binary file to facilitate data exchange between users. Data can be exchanged internally within your organization or between companies who both use FLOWCAL and share the same major releases.

When working with Flow-Cal Support to export data, this function is available as part of our annual subscription program.
