HUNTSVILLE, Ala., June 04, 2008 – Intergraph® will integrate its SmartPlant® Enterprise plant configuration solution, SmartPlant Instrumentation, with the PAS Integrity/DOC4000 product family to provide plant owners with a consolidated view of their control infrastructure for improved operations management.
The consolidated, up-to-date view of the plant’s control infrastructure – from instrument to advanced control scheme – will give process industry users the ability to:
In addition, engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) companies and new customer locations benefit from shortened SmartPlant Instrumentation set-up time with the new ability to "reverse-load" instrumentation data from existing control systems via PAS’ Integrity, the precursor to DOC 4000.
The plant configuration solution of SmartPlant Enterprise, an open engineering design and data management software suite, helps users better manage and store instrumentation and control data. The PAS DOC4000 product family is a configuration management solution that logs and reports all changes to the real-time infrastructure used to maintain and operate plants for optimal performance and safety of operations. Changes are presented automatically and securely, via intuitive Web-based views. DOC4000 provides up-to-date loop diagrams and data flow maps on which operations, maintenance and safety personnel can rely.
"The integration of SmartPlant Instrumentation and DOC4000 will provide plant owners and EPC customers with a complete picture of plant dynamics to make better operational decisions," said Eddie Habibi, PAS founder and chief executive officer. "As a result, plant operators will lower their operational risks, reduce production interrupts and increase plant safety."
"This product integration will provide our customers with a new capability to improve operations efficiency and keep their instrumentation documentation in sync with the very frequent changes to control systems," said Patrick Holcomb, Intergraph Process, Power & Marine division executive vice president.
The product integration will be rolled out to customers in phases. First prototype release planned for summer 2008.
