Successful manufacturing requires the alignment of many actions. The greater the coordination between the logistics, production, quality, asset maintenance, plant safety, regulatory compliance and other interdependent plant functions, the greater will be the plant ROI and ROA. Traditionally, different people manage each of these functions, usually using differing software applications. They have high need for structured collaboration and usually make the best effort to do so, but they are only human; inconsistency, error and incomplete context come with the territory.
Workflow Management’s advanced workflow software changes all that. As the workflow platform for AVEVA, it provides the capability to manage, enforce and document processes cross-company, replacing manual processes and paperwork with electronic workflows. It encompasses everything from routine operations to escalated responses to critical plant operating conditions.
Digital Workflow management helps to automate operational processes and to proliferate best practices, eliminating paperwork and manual error-prone procedures to effectively accomplish simple or complex tasks.
Notifications and easy-to-use data entry forms through multiple secure communication channels speed up task responses and decision making in mission-critical processes.
The Workflow Forms Designer is a web-based design tool for creating complex layouts using smart controls. Its design-friendly canvas helps configure and sustain custom forms to collect and/or visualise data at a particular step in the process, including scripting for more advanced tasks and individual security applied to different fields, with electronic signature support. Automatic responsive layout adoption and form previews provide out-of-the-box support for desktop screens and multiple mobile devices such as tablets and phones.
Document and measure processes for continuous improvement opportunities with a model-driven approach. Empowers non-IT users and business stakeholders to visually compose processes, monitor and measure the performance, quickly improve processes, and adapt changes.
A platform-neutral Web interface and applications for mobile devices keep more of your mobile workforce connected with mission-critical processes. Workflow forms provide an automatic and responsive layout adoption and form previews for multiple mobile devices. The Work Tasks app empowers users who are on the move while ensuring their interactions with or without network connectivity. Work Tasks for iOS, Android and Windows offers enhanced enterprise mobility and collaboration among stakeholders.
Process Efficiency Improvement
Increased Compliance to Mandates
Improve operational efficiency through enforcement of standard operational procedures (SOPs), and increase productivity through digital collaboration of functional teams and related systems. Eliminate paper documents with electronic forms, and use improved information views to mitigate risks associated with manual processes and capture the knowledge of an ageing workforce.
The integrated business activity reporting and activity monitoring tools allow you to build customisable KPIs, conduct performance analysis, associate workflows with BAM events, and receive proactive alerts of Business Exceptions and KPIs. BAM includes a dashboard, which highlights both workflow status and workflow instances, for at-a-glance process management.
Plant Connectivity and Enterprise Integration
Out of the box connectors for both industrial and business applications give you the flexibility to integrate your enterprise. It can also respond to events originating in MS SQL Server and Oracle databases, in XML messages, Web services and other generic interfaces. It integrates with Microsoft SharePoint, Microsoft Exchange and Microsoft Office. Connectivity to automated production processes through System Platform, MES, Asset Performance integration and third party manufacturing operations applications allows for a true end-to-end operational process management and to standardize processes across industrial enterprises.
