it includes the essential aspects related to electricity, and in this context, the a ention will be
focused on the detailed and practical processing of selected data concerning the management
of production, human resources and the price of produced electricity per generator in Thermo
power plant (TPP) “Oslomej”, as well as the various activities related to more successful
operation and production increase.
The analysis in this paper focuses and aims to show the importance and in uence of these
aspects on the management of the industrial plant, as well as improvement of its e ectiveness
