Raysonics is the leading non-destructive testing company in South Africa. Raysonics is contracted by Eskom to undertake non-destructive testing of maintenance work carried out at some of their power stations, mainly in Mpumalanga and Gauteng. This project will be done at a power station called Kendal. The project evolved from a problem that Raysonics experiences particularly during Eskom maintenance outages, when they struggle to follow work progress. This has a negative influence on their control of tasks being performed, which in turn impacts on their overall work performance. The systems that were developed provide Raysonics with better visibility, accountability and traceability during outages. Raysonics will therefore be able to better analyse and improve their business processes. The systems satisfy all requirements concerning this project and will enable Rysonics to follow work progress efficiently and effectively with accuracy.
