This presentation will discuss the business needs and daunting requirements that lead to AEP’s selection of EcoSys EPC.  In particular, the large user base and the complex data structures presented several design, testing, training, and implementation challenges.  The extra ordinary support provided by the EcoSys team and the flexibility shown by the EPC product enabled AEP to overcome these obstacles and has enabled AEP’s successful use of the project controls platform today for cost and performance management, budgeting, forecasting, etc.
