Enabling Unique Business Agility

Wonderware System Platform is extremely open and interfaces to countless hardware control and measurement devices and manufacturing systems. It allows extensive re-use of engineering, eases maintenance burdens and extensibility while leveraging the latest IT computing technologies such as virtualization and cloud computing.

System Platform enables unique business agility by completely separating the application design environment from the execution infrastructure environment. Customers can build and test in one environment and then move the entire application to a multi-node production environment without having to modify the application at all. This saves time, lowers risk,improves consistency, and augments continuous improvements. The application design environment can even exist in the cloud enabling remote user collaboration.

Easy to Build

Experience as much as 60% reduction in engineering time, and set up multi-monitor configurations in less than 5 minutes by completely eliminating the need for UI scripting and out-of-box content. System Platform provides a complete HMI framework that transforms the way HMI builders design industrial user interfaces, moving from presenting data into the next evolution of displaying information in context. System Platform is designed to facilitate access to all the information across a company and supply chain by simply clicking on a device on the map and drilling down into its details.

Easy to Use

Task-oriented graphical workflows improve accessibility across non-engineering users such as technicians, HMI developers and business users by lowering the technical knowledge required for routine tasks like commissioning devices, editing HMI screens and analyzing reasons for equipment downtime.

These modern end-user experiences are opened up to all devices for optimal situational awareness. Responsive designs enable operators to focus on the most relevant process information on any screen at all times. Access efficient reporting and analysis tools such as intuitive prebuilt charts and dash boarding capabilities designed especially for non-technical business users.

Easy to Own

Operational excellence is not a destination, but a journey. System Platform is a foundation for operational excellence empowering organizations to continuously improve product quality, reduce costs increase agility and achieve competitive superiority. System Platform provides a phased, incremental approach to deploying changes in live production environments without any system downtime or re-engineering.

NextGen Visualization Client

InTouch OMI is the world’s only Operations Management Interface that provides modern user interactions and is optimized to perform on every display screen. The same content is graphically rendered on different devices while maintaining the optimum target device’s screen resolution without any application re-engineering.

The high performance engine can render 50 graphic displays of 4K resolutions per application. InTouch OMI is 6 to 10x faster in graphic rendering performance than InTouch for System Platform on 1/10 memory footprint (e.g. 200 clients on single terminal server).

Model-driven Information View

  • Enables enterprise-wide standardization and a single version of the truth by managing all operating data.
  • A common infrastructure that normalizes and contextualizes real-time process, alarms & events and historical archived data in disparate business systems around a common information model,a model that is relevant to all functional teams company-wide.
  • This makes the design and maintenance more efficient, flexible and secure.
  • Configuring the model in the development environment automatically creates navigation links, without any scripting. By using the plant model, graphic linking and content keying, users can automatically designate the right graphics to the right screen and pane.

Centralized, Multi-user Collaboration

  • System Platform is an unique collaboration platform for continuous improvement initiative. It ensures application integrity through corporate standardization compliance across processes, functional teams and sites.
  • Entire System configuration, administration and deployment can be managed locally or remotely.
  • Achieves a competitive edge by enabling rapid change management to align with changing business or technology drivers. Automatically propagating changes systematically across projects reduces risk and the time.

Out-of-the-box Situational Awareness (SA) Library

  • System Platform optimizes business performance by empowering end-users to take control of their automation processes and enabling actionable, profitable decisions in real-time.
  • Intelligent pre-built graphics content is adaptable, configurable, and incorporates situational awareness concepts; so you don’t need to be an expert in SA theory to successfully apply it in your HMI designs.
  • System Platform based graphics have built-in quality processing and diagnostic indication,enabling you to rapidly determine root causes of communications problems.
  • Increased effectiveness by 5 fold in detecting abnormal situations before system availability is impacted. A 37% improvement in the success rate for handling abnormal situations when they do occur. A 41% reduction in the time required to complete tasks.

Advanced Alarm Management

With out-of-the-box Alarm analysis, Operators can focus on process improvement and optimization and take proactive steps to minimize or avoid problems and unscheduled shutdowns instead of reacting from alarm to alarm.

  • Web-based application for visual analysis of historical alarm data provides the ability to quickly analyze alarm patterns and identify nuisance and ‘bad actor’ alarms that can lead to operator distractions.
  • Remote Alarm Call-out notifications and acknowledgements on mobile devices.
  • Alarm shelving support
  • Plant-State based alarm suppression
  • Alarm Border animations
  • Grouping and aggregation of active and historical Alarms by severity

Future-Proof Investment with Architectural Flexibility

  • System Platform enables applications scaling from a single node to hundreds of nodes without re-architecting the entire application. Simply drag and drop objects to deploy objects on to another machine and scale up from single box solution to client-server to multi-tier tier deployment without re-engineering solution. You can easily scale as your business grows.
  • Multi-tiering levels of Historian allows full fidelity of real-time data between the SCADA control network and Business network with total architectural flexibility, yet with secure domain isolation between the two networks.
  • Connects to any device or back-end system by using standard interfaces e.g. OPCUA, OPC DA,SQL, SOAP, HTTP/S, .NET for external connectivity.
  • Run an entire 100K IO application through an improved and simplified system scalability.

Unparalleled Engineering Simplicity

  • System Platform makes it a breeze for engineers and system builders to implement and maintain SCADA platforms by maximizing automatic reuse and distribution of engineering content across the project lifecycle or yet another site.
  • I/O Auto Assignment. Greatly reduce traditional labor-intensive and time-consuming mapping to IOs. The I/O auto assignment provides an automated means of configuring application objects to devices and I/O.
  • Historical Statistical Summary Data. HMI can be fed data from the real-time data model as well as a time-based historical data model directly from the Historian without any code being written. Operators can now gain a greater understanding of the process past, present, and potential future.
  • Historical SCADA Playback. In the historical data stream, process graphics can replay past events that empower users with greater insights.
