MAY 04, 2010/PLANO, TEXAS - Invensys Operations Management, a global provider of technology systems, software solutions and consulting services to the manufacturing and infrastructure operations industries, today announced the availability of an updated version of its Wonderware IntelaTrac® mobile workforce management and decision-support system.
The IntelaTrac 4.0 system drives consistent execution of best practices in leading industrial companies worldwide, and its unique dynamic procedures, coupled with the company’s open Wonderware® System Platform, help companies adapt their workflow based on actual plant conditions, improving performance and minimizing costs. The solution features powerful new tools that extend and integrate it with important plant systems, allowing users to share data with the mobile workforce, providing better visibility into real-time plant operations and helping achieve asset and productivity excellence.
Industries such as upstream oil and gas will significantly benefit from the updated IntelaTrac system. Its new oil and gas module provides specialty calculations for tank volumes and pressure chart conversions, and it can deliver mobile data collection and calculation capabilities to hydrocarbon accounting systems, like Tieto Energy Components, enhancing the ability to reliably operate remote production facilities.
“Our IntelaTrac 4.0 system changes the impact a mobile workforce can have on the operations of an industrial plant or facility to drive operational, asset and productivity excellence in real time. Its extensibility enables our clients and ecosystem partners to integrate a number of systems throughout the plant with an IntelaTrac mobile device, delivering tasks directly to mobile operators and making them more effective and efficient,” said Jim Frider, mobile solutions product marketing manager, Invensys Operations Management. “These capabilities help close the information gap that many mobile systems have and deliver useful information directly to the people that need it the most.”
Used in hundreds of plants worldwide, the IntelaTrac system enables clients to execute predefined procedures and strategic responses under changing environmental or business conditions, resulting in a highly responsive, collaborative plant environment. The solution facilitates operational best practices by mobile workers, connecting them to enterprise asset management systems, equipment reliability systems and process historians to deliver integration and visibility into the performance of non-instrumented or stranded equipment and assets. Additionally, the IntelaTrac system helps streamline health, safety and environmental compliance and delivers rapid ROI, typically within four to six months.
The IntelaTrac 4.0 system also delivers unparalleled capabilities for operator-driven reliability, cost-effective regulatory compliance, energy management and asset responsiveness. It can also mitigate workforce turnover using its mobile on-the-job learning capabilities, all without the need for custom programming.
