Wonderware Intelligence software for historical and real-time data

Paul Boughton
Invensys Operations Management is releasing Wonderware Intelligence software 1.0. This easy-to-use enterprise manufacturing intelligence (EMI) system enables users to contextualise, aggregate and report both historian and operational data using role-based dashboards, presenting key performance indicators (KPIs) and real-time operational business metrics that are used to monitor, tune and optimise operations and supply chains.
Wonderware Intelligence software transforms data and information from multiple sources into business intelligence by aggregating process and production data in real time and adding contextual elements, such as equipment, product, work orders, material and personnel. This information enables end users to gain insights into the root causes of problems and understand how production events are related - which is claimed to be a unique benefit.
The formatted information is saved and optimised for fast reporting and analysis, enabling users to create and publish dashboards using the Wonderware Intelligence Analytics Client into a wide variety of web portals. Users can also configure customised metrics without programming.
In addition, Wonderware Intelligence software acquires data not only from the Wonderware family of products, including MES, Inbatch and Historian, but also from external systems such as ERP, LIMS, PDM or even other execution systems and historians, to provide plant, multi-plant and corporate-wide views of operations and performance.
According to Invensys, the software utilises best-in-class tools for rapidly creating and publishing dashboards that can be rendered in commonly used web platforms such as Microsoft Sharepoint, mySAP Enterprise Portal and Wonderware Information Server.
Maryanne Steidinger, director of product marketing at Invensys Operations Management, comments: "This is a true EMI solution that allows customers to build once, deploy at multiple sites and enjoy corporate-wide visibility of their plant's KPIs, even with disparate data sources. Dashboards can easily be created with drag-and-drop ease, enabling self-service access to information."
