The rise of smart phone and tablets has enabled businesses to completely rethink workflows and access to information. Within the world of manufacturing, this is even true for supervising and managing the process.
In a Chemical Engineering article, Engineering Challenges? There’s a Mobile Application for That, Emerson’s Mariana Dionisio describes how the DeltaV Mobile application:
…allows users, such as operations managers, safety engineers and process engineers, to monitor plant functions that are of concern to them and offers collaborative features that allow streamlined workflows by making it easier for managers and engineers to share critical information, enabling enhanced business results.
“…allows users to get realtime data, not just from Emerson’s DeltaV system, but from other historians and systems, as well as trends and alarms, and view operator station displays of critical control systems…”
Improving the performance of the process includes making critical process variables, key performance indicators, and abnormal situation notifications to the right person who can act on the timely information.
Having lots of information may not help improve performance. Rather, Mariana notes:
“With DeltaV Mobile, they can create filtered, customized lists that only show critical information that is important to them… Getting relevant information to the appropriate people allows them to make better decisions in a more efficient manner, and sharing that information with other experts in a secure, read-only, mobile environment enables them to have important information wherever and whenever they need it.”
