AVEVA has launched the Unified Operations Center, its command-and-control solution for infrastructure operators such as smart cities and facilities management, and for industries like oil and gas, and mining.
Organisations such as the Abu Dhabi National Oil Co. (ADNOC), Assmang Proprietary Ltd and the city of Atal Nagar in India have pioneered early versions of this tailored approach and have realised reductions in project implementation times by as much as 60% over the more time-intensive process of integrating bespoke solutions.
The Unified Operations Center is a central hub that transforms the control room into a collaborative workspace. Functional silos are broken down by contextualising operational and business data to enable teams to make better decisions based on accurate, real-time information. AVEVA provides a single solution that integrates IT and OT applications in a central hub, enhanced by industry-specific customisations.
The Center offers faster time-to-value through industry-proven solution templates, reports, dashboards and operational key performance indicators (KPIs). These unify all available data from operations, process, engineering, maintenance and finance, thereby enabling teams to improve their situational awareness of real-time operations and make better decisions.
Unified Operations Center is based on a ‘system of systems’ approach. This enables seamless plug-in of apps, predictive analytics, CCTV video, GIS maps, ERP systems, engineering P&ID diagrams and more, all within the unified user interface.
“By partnering with leading companies in the process and infrastructure market we have witnessed the operational gains that this ‘system of systems’ approach can achieve. Now, UK organisations of any size can benefit by rapidly deploying our industry-proven, template-based solutions to transform their businesses with confidence,” said Rashesh Mody, Vice President of AVEVA’s Monitoring & Control business. “The Unified Operations Center enables UK companies to achieve operational excellence and increase profitability through more efficient energy consumption and predictive maintenance. We expect to deliver other industry solutions, like power and water, in the coming months.”
Abdul Nasser Al Mughairbi, Senior Vice President, Digital at ADNOC commented: “ADNOC’s operations across the entire value chain are vast and varied and the Panorama Command Centre gives us unified live data access across all our operations and business units. Modeling, simulations and analytics have also allowed ADNOC to drive greater production efficiencies across the board. AVEVA is a key partner for ADNOC as we continue to adopt the latest technologies and drive our Oil & Gas 4.0 mission to stay ahead of the world’s growing energy demand.”
