Invensys Operations Management has released a new version of its Wonderware Intelligence software. Built on top of its ArchestrA System Platform 2012 and embedded into Tableau 7.0, the updated EMI software extends analytic capabilities by new map views, new chart types and the ability to better change between visualisation types on the fly. All of the new visualisation features are also accessible on mobile devices through mobile browser applications.
Industrial plant or infrastructure operations performance results and key metrics information is typically located in multiple, disparate data sources such as historians, batch systems, control systems, quality systems, ERP production data, MES and even homegrown applications. Wonderware Intelligence 2012 software provides the ability to connect, collect, aggregate and contextualise metrics in near real-time across multiple sources into a single and open information source. Users can then easily access this high-value information themselves. Intelligence provides ease of use tools for self-service analytics, reports and dashboards, helping to improve daily decision making and empowering the continuous improvement process. Plant or production line/unit performance can be compared with unified operational key performance indicators (KPIs).
