New Software Release September 2004: Equipment Testing Decision Model. S.Chapel Associates developed the Equipment Testing Decision Model (ETM) to provide utilites with a tool for evaluation of diagnostic testing in the context of making repair/replace decisions. ETM is a method and computer program for developing testing strategies for any equipment category but especially transmission and distribution equipment and systems.
