Siemens expands software for mobile data management in the process industry

26.11.2014
  • Version 1.1 of the Comos Mobile Solutions product family for mobile data management
  • New dashboard gives quick and clear access to plant information
  • Simplified use and evaluation of project data
  • Efficient management, even extending to major, globally distributed projects

Siemens has expanded its Comos Mobile Solutions product family, which was first presented in May 2014. It brings together the web-based solutions of the Comos software for plant engineering projects in the process industry, and enables all those involved in a project to access relevant information at all times via mobile data terminal equipment, such as tablets or a web browser.


The dashboard in COMOS WebPQM not only gives a clear view of the project status and the KPIs, it is also accessible worldwide.

Version 1.1 has a dashboard for this purpose, which provides clear visualization as well as an optimized task management.

The new functions simplify the use and evaluation of the engineering and operating data of plant asset projects thus making worldwide, networked working easier along the entire supply chain. Users are able to coordinate even major, globally distributed projects quickly and efficiently.

The new dashboard functionalities give users easy and immediate access to all project-specific and cross-project information. Comos does not need to be installed, so even employees in non-technical departments, such as controlling, and those working for suppliers can be integrated.

The dashboards visualize such items as project progress and important KPIs in the form of a status speedometer or diagram, for example. Important data and documents can be easily and quickly called with the aid of preconfigured queries or favorite links, configured for each dashboard in the web. Changes to data and documents can be tracked at all times in order to maintain consistency.

Expanded task management functions make it easier to delegate tasks and optimize work sequences. With direct access to all relevant documents via the task manager, users can provide feedback easily, thereby significantly increasing security in the review and release process – even across a number of projects.

The new functionalities in the latest version improve mobile document management in globally distributed system projects. They therefore help to optimize collaboration between different departments and disciplines and to reduce the costs and workload of even complex large-scale projects.

Im Focus: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Im Focus: Researchers Imitate Molecular Crowding in Cells

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
