Digitising field data with mobile devices

02 December 2019

Yokogawa Electric Corporation and MetaMoJi Corporation have jointly developed SensPlus Note – a low cost solution for the digitisation of plant data on mobile devices.

SensPlus Note, a solution in Yokogawa’s OpreX Operation and Maintenance Improvement family, aims to improve the efficiency and quality of maintenance work and the precision of post-maintenance analyses by enabling data from plant field work to be used more efficiently.

A wide variety of disparate devices are used in plants. Each has a specific set of maintenance procedures and check items, and this work is performed as set out in manuals, check lists, and other documentation. While it would improve efficiency and help to ensure that this work is done correctly if field maintenance data could be shared and analysed in real time, this is not possible in plants where such data is written down on paper documents. The SensPlus Note solution for the digitisation of field maintenance data on mobile devices was developed to address this need.

The solution consists of a data input application and a cloud platform. Data input using this application is digitised and uploaded to a cloud server, where it can be analysed using other software.

The solution is expected to find applications for communication between central control rooms and plant personnel, and between personnel at different plants or communication between field personnel and third-parties such as the help desk of a plant equipment manufacturer; and for the analysis of stored data to improve maintenance and manufacturing operations.
