Logbook functionality integrated with distributed control system

21 July 2015

Emerson Process Management’s Logbooks, an electronic database of operator log entries, can now be embedded into its the DeltaV distributed control system interface to improve task management and enable more effective shift handovers with real-time visibility to active entries. 

Users are able to access Logbooks directly from DeltaV workstations to view shift-based dashboards that highlight relevant log entries for the operations team.

Task management with Logbooks helps is said to help operators respond more quickly to high priority tasks. With event monitoring, logbook entries are automatically created from DeltaV events. These entries can then trigger additional tasks in the system or flag issues to raise attention. The shift dashboard displays task status and existing flags to ensure necessary work is not missed.

Operators can identify priority tasks with a customised dashboard for each user. Relevant log entries and assigned tasks are displayed and responsibilities are clearly defined for the operator.
