The Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) Utility Fuel Inventory Model (UFIM) helps to perform fuel inventory analysis and develop inventory management strategies. UFIM develops money-saving fuel inventory policies that offer the best balance between holding costs and shortage risks. Using UFIM, you can analyze your current inventory policy and compare it with the UFIM's suggested least-cost policy taking into account your plant's uncertainties, burn requirements, and operating constraints. UFIM is developed in conjunction with fuel planners from utilities across the country. Numerous case studies have been performed with the model during years of testing on actual inventory systems. As a result of this experience, UFIM is an extremely flexible tool with a broad range of applications.



Imagine India Software updated the original UFIM, implemented in Fortran/C for the DOS platform, to the Windows platform using Visual Basic,C and MS Access. The new UFIM version 4.0 uses Visual Basic for the GUI ( menus, forms, and reports), uses C for the calculation engine, and Access Database for storing case data. This version can easily be extended to work with SQL server.
