Anytime, anywhere – mobile plant management in the process industry

19.11.2015

SPS IPC Drives 2015, Hall 11

  • Comos Mobile Solutions 2.0 with new Graphical User Interface (GUI)
  • Convenient user interface enables intuitive working
  • Mobile information management in the process industry
  • Globally networked collaboration across the entire value chain

The new Comos Mobile Solutions Version 2.0 comes with a number of improvements for mobile information management in globally distributed plant engineering projects, and also facilitates cooperation between different departments and specialist disciplines. With its web-based Comos Mobile Solutions product family, Siemens is supporting globally networked collaboration in the process industry along the entire value chain.

Users are able to access and edit up-to-date plant data, information and documentation at any time on the go, no matter what their current location – for example during a meeting, on business trips or while inspecting a facility. This reduces the work load for project management and so drives down costs.

Version 2.0 is the latest release of Comos Mobile Solutions, and offers a new graphical user interface for touch-capable terminals. This simplifies operation for the user by providing context-sensitive support functions. All project stakeholders can now navigate to relevant plant information with the aid of quicklinks, view documents and submit project-related inquiries faster than ever – also using a tablet.

The ability to upload external redlining PDFs to a tablet simplifies the process of document revision and enables clearly traceable change management at any time. Used in conjunction with the document check-out and check-in functionality, this all provides the assurance of a secure, consistent review and approval process.

The new GUI provides users with fast, simple access to individual projects, but also has the capability to enable cross-project working at any time if required. For instance, important information can be displayed at a glance, using personalized dashboards.

This allows the project manager to keep a continuous watch over the current engineering status or track the degree of target attainment. Suitable warnings are issued in the event of deviations from target, and an integrated task management system provides support to project stakeholders in completing their next work steps.

The need for manual data entries is reduced by the availability of editable web attributes, as suppliers make available the information directly in the Comos interface. This minimizes potential sources of error and also loss of data, and enhances the efficiency of the engineering project, particularly where a large number of suppliers are involved.

Comos Mobile Solutions 2.0 supports Android, Apple iOS and Microsoft Windows operating systems. Comos does not need to be locally installed. Users without direct Comos access, such as managers working on the road, controllers or external suppliers, can gain fast, secure access to documents and be integrated into Comos projects.

Im Focus: A “cosmic snake” reveals the structure of remote galaxies

The formation of stars in distant galaxies is still largely unexplored. For the first time, astron-omers at the University of Geneva have now been able to closely observe a star system six billion light-years away. In doing so, they are confirming earlier simulations made by the University of Zurich. One special effect is made possible by the multiple reflections of images that run through the cosmos like a snake.

Today, astronomers have a pretty accurate idea of how stars were formed in the recent cosmic past. But do these laws also apply to older galaxies? For around a...

Im Focus: Visual intelligence is not the same as IQ

Just because someone is smart and well-motivated doesn't mean he or she can learn the visual skills needed to excel at tasks like matching fingerprints, interpreting medical X-rays, keeping track of aircraft on radar displays or forensic face matching.

That is the implication of a new study which shows for the first time that there is a broad range of differences in people's visual ability and that these...

Im Focus: Novel Nano-CT device creates high-resolution 3D-X-rays of tiny velvet worm legs

Computer Tomography (CT) is a standard procedure in hospitals, but so far, the technology has not been suitable for imaging extremely small objects. In PNAS, a team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) describes a Nano-CT device that creates three-dimensional x-ray images at resolutions up to 100 nanometers. The first test application: Together with colleagues from the University of Kassel and Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht the researchers analyzed the locomotory system of a velvet worm.

During a CT analysis, the object under investigation is x-rayed and a detector measures the respective amount of radiation absorbed from various angles....

Im Focus: Researchers Develop Data Bus for Quantum Computer

The quantum world is fragile; error correction codes are needed to protect the information stored in a quantum object from the deteriorating effects of noise. Quantum physicists in Innsbruck have developed a protocol to pass quantum information between differently encoded building blocks of a future quantum computer, such as processors and memories. Scientists may use this protocol in the future to build a data bus for quantum computers. The researchers have published their work in the journal Nature Communications.

Future quantum computers will be able to solve problems where conventional computers fail today. We are still far away from any large-scale implementation,...

Im Focus: Wrinkles give heat a jolt in pillared graphene

Rice University researchers test 3-D carbon nanostructures' thermal transport abilities

Pillared graphene would transfer heat better if the theoretical material had a few asymmetric junctions that caused wrinkles, according to Rice University...
