Operations Monitoring provides the tools for an operations department to establish and manage engineering limits and constraints, monitor performance to plan and limits, and follow up on performance problems. It helps address questions such as:
Are operating plans being met?
What are the safety, process, design and environmental limits, and are these being met consistently?
If plans or limits are being violated, why?
How can process performance and unit reliability be improved?
Operations Monitoring includes a service program that monitors data and stores the results in a database, running every few minutes to monitor as many as 20,000 targets from a process historian such as Uniformance PHD. This extensive data monitoring helps improve reliability and operating efficiency through early identification of problems. With the availability of Intuition Operations Monitoring, users enjoy additional benefits such as flexibility in creating custom reports, reduced technology footprint and faster commissioning.
