Achieving operations excellence has become mandatory for maintaining a competitive advantage, and for many companies, is vital for survival. Process manufacturing companies must achieve the highest possible return on capital assets. Off-target performance and unavailability of critical production assets have strong impacts on production costs. Enterprises must also detect and solve equipment issues before they produce potentially costly consequences, a major operational challenge due to the increased complexity of equipment and production processes.
Integration Objects’ solutions for addressing these needs and many others of today’s key industry issues are called Smart Operations.
KnowledgeNet (KNet) allows to monitoring and management of plant operations and supply chain performance, bringing you knowledge at your fingertips. KNet not only gathers the right data, information, and knowledge scattered across many "islands of automation", but also uses knowledge management features, tools, and interconnectivity to empower users to make more effective business and operation decisions. It is primarily used to in the chemical oil and gas, power, and utilities industries for making timely business decisions to increase production uptime and safety. Users may include operators, shift supervisors, process engineers, operators, and plant managers.
Integration Objects’ newest solution Smart Equipment is here to address your plant performance asset availability and safety concerns. These ready-to-use software components embed years of process knowledge in operating and optimizing process critical assets. Smart Equipment modules were built on top of Integration Objects’ KnowledgeNet for performing real-time monitoring, conducting predictive analysis, and diagnosing root causes of process issues, thus ultimately guiding operators to better resolution decisions.
PlantOK™ captures operational knowledge, archives it, and shares it across the enterprise. It automates the elicitation and capture of knowledge by using plant events as raw inputs and provides a standard and systematic approach capable of transforming those events into useful capital knowledge for operational improvements.
