Organizations in asset-intensive industries are constantly challenged to deliver maximum return on assets (ROA) while working with minimal budgets, data integrity challenges and lack of insight into the factors driving asset performance.
Schneider Electric announced the continued expansion of its cloud platform, Insight, powered by Wonderware Online. A new insight performance module provides overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) monitoring, asset utilization analysis and downtime tracking in the cloud.
Manufacturing operations have matured at a rapid rate over the last few years as many companies decide to implement plant level systems that integrate the manufacturing assets and control in a standard way. Indeed, large manufacturers have put a lot of emphasis on standardizing these systems across multiple plants.
This paper examines the benefits of various strategies for electrical distribution equipment maintenance. Different approaches to equipment maintenance have varying effects on safety, service continuity, power infrastructure optimization, equipment protection, energy efficiency, efficient spare parts management, and the total cost of asset ownership.
Pipeline operators are living in interesting times. With the fluctuations in the market they are forced to “do more with less”. Pair this with an aging and changing workforce and it has never been more important to ensure that employees are well trained; That they are capable of not only supporting day-to-day operations but also perform during critical abnormal operating conditions be it a leak or loss of communications. Well-trained employees perform better and, in turn, create a better performing business and an improved bottom line.
This white paper will discuss the four stages of Schneider Electric’s framework that guides the architecture of an integrated refinery information management system.
Since the 1970s, process simulators have become an invaluable tool for designing and operating process plants. The new normal in the oil industry, the continuous need to innovate chemical industry and energy alternatives, is driving a need for a new approach. Therefore, any new process simulation platform must support the entire plant lifecycle in one single environment; it must be open enough to be extendable while enticing the next generation of engineers.

Operator Training Simulators (OTSs) have been available in the marketplace for a long time. However, over the last five years the improvements in technology — the computers, the software and the market understanding — have meant that the use of OTSs has become a reality for many processes.
A key aspect of the “Perfect Plant” is having the right information in the right place at the right time. In most manufacturing environments, instrumentation and monitoring is widespread.
Regulatory compliance is an expensive and critical business issue for oil and gas pipeline operators. Any approach that expedites compliance efforts saves time and money and also improves safety. By Tony Collins, Simulation Specialist, Schneider Electric
In the midst of tough economic times, oil and gas businesses are facing an urgent need to operate at the highest levels of efficiency while increasing productivity and controlling costs. They want to limit downtime and minimize risks to safety and the environment. While there are a number of challenges facing the industry, including digital disruptions and financial uncertainty, applications enabled by the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) can provide significant performance and reliability improvements.
During the past several years, operational costs for oil and gas production fields have more than doubled, and field life requirements have been extended by as much as 500 percent. Due to the soaring costs for development and the increased demand, oil and gas production assets must achieve very high throughput rates while improving energy efficiency, safety, and reducing emissions levels. During which, oil and gas production fields are faced with greater flow assurance challenges.
The natural gas and oil industry is continually driven by cost-cutting measures and the need to gain more operational efficiencies and visibility to regulatory requirements. Wireless instrumentation systems provide highly accurate digital readings to the control system to assist in making control decisions at the well site. This paper summarizes a solution in which wireless instruments integrate with other conventional equipment to offer a rapidly deployable advanced well optimization system.
Traditionally pipeline controllers have recorded key information in logs or on spreadsheets. Information management solutions help streamline the massive documentation and logging traditionally done manually by controllers. This paper discusses how an automated system helps pipeline operators comply with new federal regulations by safely reducing demands placed on controllers and the fatigue often associated with their tasks.
Commodity releases can have catastrophic consequences, so ensuring pipeline integrity is crucial for pipeline operators. Pipeline integrity is not just about preventing incidents, but is a holistic approach to the prevention, detection, and mitigation of commodity releases. This paper discusses advanced technologies and tools that enable greater pipeline integrity, particularly computational pipeline monitoring (CPM) methodologies as a means to identify anomalies that signal a possible commodity pipeline release.
Oil and Gas exploration continue all over the world and as more hydrocarbon sources are found the demand for pipelines to transport oil and gas increase. However, pipeline operators are under severe financial and social pressure to avoid incidents that cause crude oil and natural gas leaks. With regulators scrutinizing pipeline projects, the reputation of the entire industry is at risk. This is why pipeline integrity must become the focus of discussion.
The vibrant upstream oil and gas industry is investing large amounts of capital in the pursuit of new reserves/resource plays, new extraction technology, and advances in operating automation…all with the hopes of improving oil recovery and maximizing production.
This white paper describes a new approach to allocation and reservoir optimization to help drive more value in upstream oil & gas production operations. New multi-phase Net Oil and Wet Gas measurement solutions can provide more accurate and reliable allocation measurements in real time while reducing capital and operational expenditures in field automation. The basis for these solutions is innovative measurement and modeling technology that can address a wide range of metering challenges.
IIoT concepts are transforming the Oil & Gas industry business model in fast and dramatic ways as a result of three key factors.
Dynamic Simulation and Operator Training Systems (OTS) have been available in the marketplace for a long time. However, over the last five years the improvements in technology — the computers, the software and the market understanding —have meant that the use of OTS has become a reality for many processes.
Recipe management plays an important role in the success of batch manufacturing; often a key component in a company’s manufacturing operations transformation process. However, a huge gap exists in the market between simpler recipe management solutions offered in many software packages, batch management and control packages. This article will explain how to bridge that gap and detail the importance of management solutions in keeping high-quality and consistent recipes.
The end users of modern industrial systems are constantly searching for methods of improving the availability and maximizing the efficiency of those systems without compromising the quality of their offerings or safety of their operations teams. One of the areas where improvements can have significant impacts in this pursuit is quite literally staring them in the face; the human machine interface used to control and operate these systems. By implementing improvements in the mechanisms used to control and operate industrial systems, operations teams can significantly improve both the business value and the safety of their industrial systems.
