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.
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.

A widely used diabetes medication combined with an antihypertensive drug specifically inhibits tumor growth – this was discovered by researchers from the University of Basel’s Biozentrum two years ago. In a follow-up study, recently published in “Cell Reports”, the scientists report that this drug cocktail induces cancer cell death by switching off their energy supply.
The widely used anti-diabetes drug metformin not only reduces blood sugar but also has an anti-cancer effect. However, the metformin dose commonly used in the...
A research team from the University of Zurich has developed a new drone that can retract its propeller arms in flight and make itself small to fit through narrow gaps and holes. This is particularly useful when searching for victims of natural disasters.
Inspecting a damaged building after an earthquake or during a fire is exactly the kind of job that human rescuers would like drones to do for them. A flying...
Over the last decade, there has been much excitement about the discovery, recognised by the Nobel Prize in Physics only two years ago, that there are two types...
What if a sensor sensing a thing could be part of the thing itself? Rice University engineers believe they have a two-dimensional solution to do just that.
Rice engineers led by materials scientists Pulickel Ajayan and Jun Lou have developed a method to make atom-flat sensors that seamlessly integrate with devices...
Scientists at the University of Stuttgart and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) succeed in important further development on the way to quantum Computers.
Quantum computers one day should be able to solve certain computing problems much faster than a classical computer. One of the most promising approaches is...
