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: Neutron star merger directly observed for the first time

University of Maryland researchers contribute to historic detection of gravitational waves and light created by event

On August 17, 2017, at 12:41:04 UTC, scientists made the first direct observation of a merger between two neutron stars--the dense, collapsed cores that remain...

Im Focus: Breaking: the first light from two neutron stars merging

Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.

Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....

Im Focus: Smart sensors for efficient processes

Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).

When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...

Im Focus: Cold molecules on collision course

Using a new cooling technique MPQ scientists succeed at observing collisions in a dense beam of cold and slow dipolar molecules.

How do chemical reactions proceed at extremely low temperatures? The answer requires the investigation of molecular samples that are cold, dense, and slow at...

Im Focus: Shrinking the proton again!

Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, using high precision laser spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen, confirm the surprisingly small value of the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen.

It was one of the breakthroughs of the year 2010: Laser spectroscopy of muonic hydrogen resulted in a value for the proton charge radius that was significantly...
