Invensys Process System has teamed with Pleasanton, CA-based Transpara to offer clients visual key performance indicator (KPI) technology for remote monitoring of process variables from mobile communications devices. The deal means that Invensys is now a global reseller and certified implementer for Transpara’s Visual KPI operations intelligence package. Visual KPI delivers on-demand, business-critical data about process status to handheld devices and desktop browsers.
Invensys VP Chris Lyden said, ‘Transpara’s innovative Visual KPI technology will provide incremental value for our large installed based. This new technology will enable personnel in our customers’ process and utility plants to remotely monitor, in near-real-time, both process variables and custom-defined KPIs from their familiar handheld mobile computing or communications devices, including both PDAs and smartphones.’
Composite source data for the KPIs can come from a variety of different data sources including OSIsoft’s PI System, Invensys’ own InSQL or InFusion plant historians as well as other automation, information, or computerized maintenance management (CMMS) platforms. Visual KPI offers insight into organizational performance by delivering actionable decision-support information ‘directly to process owners.’
