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: Molecular switch will facilitate the development of pioneering electro-optical devices

A research team led by physicists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has developed molecular nanoswitches that can be toggled between two structurally different states using an applied voltage. They can serve as the basis for a pioneering class of devices that could replace silicon-based components with organic molecules.

The development of new electronic technologies drives the incessant reduction of functional component sizes. In the context of an international collaborative...

Im Focus: LZH showcases laser material processing of tomorrow at the LASYS 2018

At the LASYS 2018, from June 5th to 7th, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will be showcasing processes for the laser material processing of tomorrow in hall 4 at stand 4E75. With blown bomb shells the LZH will present first results of a research project on civil security.

At this year's LASYS, the LZH will exhibit light-based processes such as cutting, welding, ablation and structuring as well as additive manufacturing for...

Im Focus: Self-illuminating pixels for a new display generation

There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?

At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...
