McHale Suites Features List

SuitesHelpFileScreenshotMcHale Performance Suites provides results that are accurate and defensible. The defensibility of the calculations and test results is a core competency involved in multiple party performance testing. Results are routinely challenged because of the significant awards and liquidated damages associated with performance guarantees. McHale conducts testing in over a hundred power plants a year. The functions are time-tested and verified in every performance and acceptance test that McHale performs. McHale Performance Suites provides additional confidence in the defensibility of results and minimizes the risk of computational blunders.

For a complete list of the functions, and how to use them, please see the on-line help file HERE.
