Today’s energy and processing plants rely on sophisticated industrial automation solutions to monitor and manage production and processing activity around the clock and across the globe. The challenge: display large volumes of graphic and sensor data, while enhancing remote communications, to enable fast, effective decisions when minutes count. The Emerson iOps “Integrated Operations” Center, powered by Barco’s networked visualization and collaboration platform, provides a live demo environment to show customers the way to succeed.
The new iOps Center engages customers with an immersive, hands-on experience using the latest solutions for process management operations in the control room. “Our goal in creating the iOps Center was to go beyond typical PowerPoint presentations to provide a real-world environment where customers could experience how our combined technologies can help them solve their problems,” comments Mike Boudreaux, Director of Remote Asset Monitoring and Analytics.
When Emerson envisioned its iOps Center, the team had three distinct goals: wirelessly present to customers, quickly manipulate sources on the wall and user workstations, and change over the demo room scenarios from one industry vertical to another in five minutes. Barco provided the technology and support to help them achieve all of these goals and more.
