  25. Switching Plan Enhancements • Total kVA and customers affected shows in step editor when step is instructed or executed

  26. User Roles – Versions Prior to Release 4 • Prior authority used one of five operation modes to grant login and functional authority per sub area • Operation modes were hierarchical and the user was assigned the highest mode he was authorized to use • Disadvantage: Unable to define users who can have the highest functional authority but not have the intermediate functions

  27. User Roles – Release 4 • Now authority uses a combination of user roles and an unlimited number of operation modes to grant login and functional authority • Operation modes are NOT hierarchical but independent levels used to configure authority for different roles • Administrator needs to determine a grouping of functionality first and then assign the appropriate number of opmodes

  28. Examples of User Roles • Admin • Perform admin functions in Ormap • Cannot perform supervisory control • Cannot assign crews • Cannot update outages • Operator • Open/close fuses • Cannot open/close switches • Grid Management • Open/close switches • Run load flow

  29. Roles and Operation Modes • Role can comprise any mix of operation mode levels • Number of operation mode levels is unlimited • Operation mode can now be defined per device type
