Collaborative Process Automation Systems – The Power of Integration

Integrated Operations

Abstract: The potential and the power of integration lies in what can be achieved when information is made available, in context, to all of the devices, systems and individuals responsible for controlling, maintaining and managing production. Imagine that with one click an operator can access any information required to make an informed decision—regardless of where the data resides. Or that a maintenance technician can access from his wireless tablet the commissioning displays, diagnostics and active work orders for the transmitter he is troubleshooting. Realizing this vision requires seamless, transparent access to data and information from all traditional hierarchical levels of plant information, from field devices to control system applications to business systems. And one’s choice of process automation architecture can play a major role in just how easy—or impractical—realizing the power of integration can be.
