Plant Operations Management Solutions
Optimize critical performance. Prioritize safety and compliance.
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.

expand Key Capabilities
|Equipment Management||Access equipment data to identify current configuration and all related operational activities such as tag-outs, operating procedures and rounds.|
|Narrative Logs||Automate the manual and automatic recording and qualifying of events which occurs during an individual’s shift watch. Enhance and streamline the critical process of shift turnover during plant operation.|
|Configuration Control||Track configuration activities associated with the ‘living model’ for all plant procedures. Provides operators with information related to equipment configuration control and status based on actual plant conditions, as opposed to static procedures.|
|Clearance||Implement, control and execute a plant’s tag-out procedures including the ability to ‘share’ tags which has proven to save significant manpower during normal operation and outages without compromising safety.|
|Operator Rounds||Automate the collection, storage and analysis of equipment data from operator rounds. Provides personnel responsible for plant operation with a powerful yet easy-to-use tool to detect and prevent equipment problems, thus maximizing plant reliability.|
|LCO Tracking||Track a diverse spectrum of compliance requirements such as technical specifications, technical requirements manuals, fire protection guidelines, off-site dose calculation manuals and administrative procedures.|
|Personnel Qualifications & Scheduling||Develop and maintain user requirements and associated position qualifications. Track user requirement status via direct input or links to external sources (e.g. training databases). Generate, staff, and validate shift schedules from pre-defined watchbill rotations, incorporating time-off. Evaluate schedules for compliance with position qualification requirements and work-hour limits.|
