Software expansion for mobile process data management
06 January 2015
Siemens has recently expanded its Comos Mobile Solutions product family, bringing together the Comos software web-based solutions for plant engineering projects in the process industry, and enabling all those involved in a project to access relevant information at any time via mobile data terminal equipment, such as tablets or a web browser.
Version 1.1 has a dashboard for this purpose and which provides clear visualisation as well as optimising task management.
The new dashboard functionalities provide users with immediate access to all project-specific and cross-project information. Comos does not need to be installed, so even employees in non-technical departments, such as controlling, and those working for suppliers can be integrated.
The dashboards visualise items such as project progress and important KPIs in status speedometer or diagram form.
Data and documents can be quickly called-up with the aid of preconfigured queries or favourite links, configured for each dashboard in the web. Changes to data and documents can be tracked at all times in order to maintain consistency.
Expanded task management functions are said to make it easier to delegate tasks and optimise work sequences. With direct access to all relevant documents via the task manager, users can provide feedback easily, helping to increase security in the review and release process – even across a number of projects.
The new functionalities promise to improve mobile document management in globally distributed system projects and can, therefore, help to optimise collaboration between different departments and disciplines and to reduce the costs and workload of complex large-scale projects.
