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: Can we see monkeys from space? Emerging technologies to map biodiversity

An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.

Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...

Im Focus: Climate satellite: Tracking methane with robust laser technology

Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.

Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...

Im Focus: How protons move through a fuel cell

Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.

As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...

Im Focus: A unique data centre for cosmological simulations

Scientists from the Excellence Cluster Universe at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich have establised "Cosmowebportal", a unique data centre for cosmological simulations located at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences. The complete results of a series of large hydrodynamical cosmological simulations are available, with data volumes typically exceeding several hundred terabytes. Scientists worldwide can interactively explore these complex simulations via a web interface and directly access the results.

With current telescopes, scientists can observe our Universe’s galaxies and galaxy clusters and their distribution along an invisible cosmic web. From the...
