*Description of project*
EnergiUnion wants to develop a web application for storing data about electricity meters by using a database. Due to changes in the Norwegian government’s regulations for electricity meters in use throughout Norway, it is now necessary for each electricity company to store data about their electricity meters in use. Each house or apartment in Norway is fitted with an electricity meter. The meters are owned by the electricity company. An average electricity company might own several thousands electricity meters. The database is required to enable the electricity companies to send reports to the Norwegian government to ensure them that their electricity meters are in required condition. The electricity companies have to test their electricity meters regularly and they therefore want to be able to store their findings in a database using a web based interface. The web based interface should also make it possible for the electricity meter manufacturer to also input information about their product into each of the company’s databases. This feature will ease the communication between the supplier of electricity meters and the buyer of the meters (the electricity company).Apart from just storing data, the application has to generate reports and graphs from some of the data which is stored. The reports and graphs have to be sent to the government or they might be used by the electricity companies for planning purposes. The manufacturer of the electricity meters may also benefit from generating reports over items sold to the electricity company as well as keeping track of faulty products. Even though the application is to be used by each electricity company in the beginning it might be possible that the government is going to require a national database for all test information from each company. This will probably be done to make it easier for the government to check the test data and reports to make sure all electricity meters are working properly. This database if created will store a lot of [url removed, login to view] is also important that the applications language is in Norwegian for the electricity companies and English for the manufactures of electricity meters.
