Complex manufacturing plants, such as nuclear, fossil, chemical, refining and offshore facilities, face a unique set of challenges to operate their facilities more safely, efficiently, economically, with less impact to the environment. It is therefore important to look at one of the major contributors to those challenges: Plant Operations.
The industry as a whole is focusing on ways to better manage the complex processes performed by operators and managers in their production facilities as a way to meet these challenges. Managing activities in a complex plant operations environment demands a comprehensive, integrated software system that not only optimizes performance, but can also be implemented quickly and adapted to plant-specific procedures and processes without compromising safety. To improve quality and reliability, plant operators require the ability to access this functionality from a mobile device out at the point of performance and not back in the head office.
