Benefit Areas (example)
Production Yield Accounting (Consistency for Cost & Yields)
Data Reconciliation (Enhanced Accuracy & Reliability)
Gross Error Detection (Prioritize Instrument Maintenance)
Loss (Leak) Analysis (Minimize Product Revenue Loss)
Mass and Fuel Balance (More Accurate View of Operations)
Actionable Results, such as:
- Reduce Material Losses by $100s of Thousands
- Reduce Plan vs. Scheduled vs. Actual Gap
- Avoid Costly Transaction Errors
- Minimize Environmental Incidents & Fines
Attractive ROI (typical payback 6 months to 1 year)

Visual Mesa Production Accounting, formerly S-TMS Production and Yield Accounting, provides a complete state of the art solution for production accounting and data reconciliation which supports mass loss detection initiatives in complex industrial environments. It serves as a:
- Productivity tool for the pumpers to log their activities while providing early error detection when reporting movements and inventories.
- Data preparation tool for data reconciliation and analysis.
- Central data repository where inventories and movements are calculated, distributed, traced, stored and checked using a rigorous model of the entire plant including tank farms or business unit.
- Mass balance reconciliation tool, both global and by components.
- Gross error and mass loss detection analysis tool.
VisualMesa Production Accounting supports the implementation of production / yield accounting and data reconciliation best practices. In addition, it provides an auditable work environment for the Yield Accountant.
