Mobile solutions for efficient plant projects

19.05.2014
  • Mobile data management via tablets and web-based access to relevant system information anytime, anywhere
  • Easy, intuitive operation for users with all levels of experience
  • New: Comos WebPQM for improved collaboration across the entire value chain and Comos Snapshots for the efficient querying of large volumes of data

The Siemens Industry Automation division is bundling its web-based solutions for plant projects in the process industry in the new product family Comos Mobile Solutions. This supports globally networked collaboration across the entire value chain for plant projects.


With Comos Mobile Document Review, the user can conveniently edit Comos documents from any location using an iPad.

With Comos Mobile Solutions, all of the participants in a project have access to relevant information via web-based services and mobile devices such as tablets - anytime, anywhere. Easy-to-use, tailor-made solutions for practical applications simplify collaboration and access to Comos data and documents.

Even users with no direct access to Comos such as managers and controllers who are working while traveling, or even external suppliers can now be quickly and securely integrated into Comos projects. The Comos Mobile Solutions will be delivered to the market in significantly shorter release cycles so that new features and applications can be provided more quickly.

The new product family has been expanded by two new solutions: Comos WebPQM and Comos Snapshots. Comos WebPQM (Project Quality Management), is specially designed for highly regulated processing industries, and is now available for the online editing of documents and engineering data. Comos WebPQM functions include: the uploading, checking-in and checking-out of documents, and full revision management directly in the Comos Web user interface. With these functions, global projects can now be more efficiently implemented across the entire value chain. The new, editable web attributes were advantageous in pilot projects: They simplified the exchange of engineering data with suppliers and they supported compliance with regulatory requirements. With Comos Snapshots, queries of even the largest data sets can be quickly displayed. The user defines these customized queries via an easy to use Graphical User Interface (GUI) and the data is available in a few seconds, at the press of a button.

The Comos Web Server is the basic prerequisite for all Comos Mobile Solutions for exchanging data via the web. This also applies to the already available solutions Comos WebView, Comos Mobile Document Review, and the SharePoint Interface for Microsoft environments. Comos WebView, with a simplified interface for use by popular browsers, allows read access to all Comos documents and data. Via the SharePoint interface, users work in a familiar Microsoft environment and can access Comos documents with no redundancy. The iPad app Comos Mobile Document Review provides comprehensive functions for document management (also available offline), including redlining and the release of revision steps.

For plant projects, it's important for all project stakeholders to have access to all relevant data anytime and anywhere, whether it is through a simple web connection or specific apps for mobile devices.. Now, with Comos Mobile Solutions, project stakeholders can have easy-to-use and efficient solutions for managing documents in plant projects; they can access different, distributed data sources; and they can make global collaboration easier. The applications for mobile working while traveling can be started directly with data access that is immediately available. The intuitive operation of the interface gives access to the desired information in just a few clicks. The easy access to plant project data is an important driver for project success in the process industries.

Im Focus: Advances in Molecular Electronics: Lights On – Molecule On

Scientists at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) and the University of Konstanz are working on storing and processing information on the level of single molecules to create the smallest possible components that will combine autonomously to form a circuit. As recently reported in the academic journal Advanced Science, the researchers can switch on the current flow through a single molecule for the first time with the help of light.

Dr. Artur Erbe, physicist at the HZDR, is convinced that in the future molecular electronics will open the door for novel and increasingly smaller – while also...

Im Focus: Pruning of Blood Vessels: Cells Can Fuse With Themselves

Cells of the vascular system of vertebrates can fuse with themselves. This process, which occurs when a blood vessel is no longer necessary and pruned, has now been described on the cellular level by Prof. Markus Affolter from the Biozentrum of the University of Basel. The findings of this study have been published in the journal “PLoS Biology”.

The vascular system is the supply network of the human organism and delivers oxygen and nutrients to the last corners of the body. So far, research on the...

Im Focus: A “pin ball machine” for atoms and photons

A team of physicists from MPQ, Caltech, and ICFO proposes the combination of nano-photonics with ultracold atoms for simulating quantum many-body systems and creating new states of matter.

Ultracold atoms in the so-called optical lattices, that are generated by crosswise superposition of laser beams, have been proven to be one of the most...

Im Focus: UV light robot to clean hospital rooms could help stop spread of 'superbugs'

Can a robot clean a hospital room just as well as a person?

According to new research out of the Texas A&M Health Science Center College of Medicine, that is indeed the case. Chetan Jinadatha, M.D., M.P.H., assistant...
