In the afternoon, 8 experts from leading technology providers such as IBM, ADI, Scking Electronics, Anran, etc. were gathered in the ¡°Innovation AMR/AMI Technology Showcase¡± session to share their development experiences on advanced AMR/AMI technologies and pilot projects.

On September 16, there are 3 ¡°Educational Workshop¡± sessions dedicated to AMR/AMI project management knowledge and skills, information & communication technologies, and meter data management seperately. The workshop 1 was conducted by Charles Vincent, who is the expert from IBM and the other two sessions were conducted by Chinese local experts Mr. SHU Shan and Mr. Elliot CHEN. Following the two sessions, Expert Discussion Panelists were arranged to discuss and analyze the hot topics related to the system implementation issues as well as lessons learned. Through workshops, we can find that good project management skills are essential for large scale AMR/AMI deployment and Chinese Utility Companies need to understand more advanced management knowledge from international typical AMR/AMI projects and these will help them to lower future deployment risks and make a greater success.
