"Invensys" Simplifies SCADA and Enterprise Information Management with Wonderware System Platform 4.0
APRIL 12, 2010/PLANO, TEXAS – Invensys Operations Management, a global provider of technology systems, software solutions and consulting services to the process and manufacturing industries, today announced new customer-driven functionality with the release of its Wonderware® System Platform 4.0 software.
As part of this new software platform release, Invensys continues to build out its open, industry standards based ArchestrA® technology framework. Wonderware System Platform 4.0 software delivers new information services and capabilities, including new device connectivity functions, tiered historian capabilities and dramatic web visualization improvements, that enable plant operators to more effectively manage and control equipment and processes; information systems personnel to more easily integrate and make use of real-time manufacturing information; and for all personnel to be continuously up to date on their overall operations performance.
Part of the company’s strategy is to empower a wide range of production workers with easy-to-use visualization, reporting and intelligence tools. The System Platform software offers new tiered historian capabilities, designed to greatly simplify data time-stamping, information aggregation, retrieval and reporting, along with improved information security and disaster recovery across distributed operations. The platform historian is also available as a standalone offering, Wonderware Historian 10.0. The Information Server 4.0 component of the platform now provides the rich experience and performance of real-time ArchestrA graphics for web visualization, supporting a wide range of production workers with more functional and effective KPI reports and HMI graphics. Using the company’s open platform, customer’s graphical configuration efforts can be easily reused and managed across their manufacturing enterprises, as both Wonderware InTouch® HMI graphics and inside their web applications.
“The Wonderware System Platform 4.0 software provides a single, scalable and open platform for SCADA, HMI, MES and EMI software, addressing the business and functional needs of industrial automation, operations and information personnel,” said Steve Garbrecht, director, product marketing, Invensys Operations Management. “Its plant-model based, integrated configuration environment provides a logical representation of the physical processes being controlled and supervised, enabling rapid configuration and deployment of component object-based industrial applications.
