Fast access to current, reliable information Energy Management Suite Instrumentation, Controls & Electrical Energy Management Suite SPPA-M3000 Plant Management@WebBFS Plant Data Management Ensure fast access to plant data for all employees and avoid redundant maintenance: The Plant Data Management module provides invaluable support. Your Benefits ■ Reliable high-quality data ■ Functions optimally tailored to requirements ■ Direct usability of the data ■ No changes to existing identification systems required The Task Current and reliable information is the basis for all activities. About 50% of work time are spent on obtaining and verifying information, with 10-20% of that spent on plant data. Different departments may need the same basic information, but in different combinations and requiring different specific additional data. Such information is frequently kept individually in various lists. This decentralized, partly redundant data storage requires a great deal of maintenance and is of relatively little value to the users. All parts of a plant are captured and described only once in high quality, giving you an excellent foundation for all work processes associated with technical plant management without any need for further verification. In addition, the Plant Data Management module also serves as a common information base for a comprehensive technical information system as well as for any other Plant Management solutions. The data can thus be used directly without any need for further transferring, reformatting or translating. This enables flawless use of existing identification systems (KKS, AKZ, etc.). The system is available as a state-of-the-art Web application and also in a traditional Client/Server configuration. Current and reliable plant data are accessible from any workplace. Our Solution The Plant Data Management offers fast access to current and reliable plant data from a single source for all users. A structured description of the complete plant which takes into account the requirements of all departments according to uniform rules in a centralized database provides the basis. These tailored functions considerably reduce the effort for data maintenance and data capture. Answers for energy. Functional overview For comprehensive description of the plant, the Plant Data Management uses objects, which are described in more detail below. All objects are uniquely identified and can be integrated in a tree structure that graphically shows the relationships between the objects. Plant parts Complex technical plants, such as power plants, are broken down into so-called plant items according to functional and physical aspects: e.g., units and plant sections, systems and subsystems, auxiliary equipment and machine sets or accessories, such as valves and fittings or drives. The Plant Data Management allows you to assign them unique identifiers, classify them and assign them class-specific design data. Equipment This comprises the products of a manufacturer uniquely identified by their equipment or serial numbers that fulfill a certain function in the process. The Plant Data Management module allows them to be automatically generated for a plant item or entered manually with class-specific type data. Product types (type) Frequently, a plant uses several products of the same type. The Plant Data Management module allows you to maintain the different product types with all relevant type data in a catalog.

Instrumentation, Controls, & Electrical 1345 Ridgeland Parkway, Suite 116 Alpharetta, GA 30004, USA Assured data quality: Upon input, data are checked for format (validity), plausibility and duplicates. All checks can be adapted to the plant-specific requirements. Plant structure The Plant Data Management facilitates a coarse-to-fine description of all mechanical, electrical and I&C structures of a plant. It is also possible to create mesh connections between these hierarchical structures as desired. The hierarchical structures are graphically shown in a tree structure, to which you can add other objects such as documents, work plans, parts lists. etc. Changes in the structure are easily made by dragging and dropping. Topographic structure/layout The Plant Management module also allows you to structure the plant according to topographical aspects by buildings, floors, rooms, locations, furnishings, etc. This allows you to describe the arrangement of plant items (set-up, installation, mounting) in the plant.

Historical information For evaluation of a plan item or piece of equipment, the Plant Data Management allows you to access historical data, such as malfunctions and faults that have occurred, maintenance measures carried out, inspection results, logs of operating and set values as well as location and time of deployment for that part/piece of equipment in the plant. Parts Lists Parts lists have a number of uses, including forming the basis for determining the required material when planning work orders. If necessary, equipment or product types can be broken down to the parts level in simple or nested parts lists with the Plant Data Management module. This is useful for assigning technical information or defining spare parts kept in stock, for example. All rights reserved.
