AVEVA, a global vendor in engineering and industrial software, launched Unified Operations Centre, its command-and-control solution for infrastructure operators such as smart cities and facilities management, and for industries like Oil and Gas and Mining.
Working side-by-side with leading companies in these verticals, AVEVA has turned best practices into templated solutions that are repeatable, scalable and adaptable, enabling fast implementation and return on investment.
The Unified Operations Centre is a central hub that transforms the control room into a collaborative workspace. Functional silos are broken down by contextualising operational and business data to enable teams to make better decisions based on accurate, real-time information. AVEVA is the first to provide a single solution that integrates IT and OT Operational Technology applications in a central hub, enhanced by industry-specific customisations.
AVEVA’s Unified Operations Centre, built on AVEVA System Platform, offers faster time-to-value through industry-proven solution templates, reports, dashboards and operational KPIs that unify available data from operations, process, engineering, maintenance and finance, enabling teams to improve their situational awareness of real-time operations and make better decisions.
Based on a systems of systems approach, Unified Operations Centre allows plug-in and integrated apps, analytics, CCTV videos, GIS maps, ERP systems, Engineering piping and instrumentation diagrams and more. With out-of-the-box industry solution templates, reports, dashboards, and operational KPIs unifying your functional teams, departments and sites, seamlessly, under one platform, Unified Operations Centre enables faster time to value.
AVEVA Unified Operations Centre empowers the whole team with a centralised view to help make informed decisions, fast. Bringing end-to-end operational visibility across facilities helps you improve safety, operational efficiency, and ultimately the profit margins of your business. Oil and gas 4.0 is putting the Industrial Revolution 4.0 within an oil and gas context.
“By partnering with leading companies in the process and infrastructure market we have witnessed the operational gains that this system of systems approach can achieve. Now, organisations of any size can benefit by rapidly deploying our industry-proven, template-based solutions to transform their businesses with confidence,” said Rashesh Mody, Vice President of AVEVA’s Monitoring and Control business. “The Unified Operations Centre enables companies to achieve operational excellence and increase profitability through more efficient energy consumption and predictive maintenance. We expect to deliver other industry solutions, like power and water, in the coming months.”
Organisations such as the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company, Assmang Proprietary Ltd and the city of Atal Nagar in India have pioneered early versions of this tailored approach and have realised reductions in project implementation times by as much as 60% over the more time-intensive process of integrating bespoke solutions.
Assmang Proprietary turned to AVEVA to centralise operations, consolidate its value chain, and increase situational awareness amongst three individual mineshafts at its Black Rock Mine Operations. Yogesh Ramjattan, Business Improvement Manager at Black Rock Mine Operations explained why the AVEVA solution was critical to success.
“What we needed was a total view of our value chain, from the face through to our train loading, with everything brought under one umbrella that would allow us to get the full view of all of our infrastructure, all our different plants and mining operations, to enable us to manage the entire process far more efficiently.”
Smart City Atal Nagar
Smart City Atal Nagar is now a role model for other Indian Cities. At Atal Nagar Naya Raipur, India’s first greenfield Smart City, Unified Operations Centre was used to integrate grid, water, SCADA building, street lighting, rapid transport, CCTV, e-governance, energy management, traffic management systems and city help desk applications into a central command centre.
The command and control centre was inaugurated by Narendra Modi, Honorable Prime Minister, India, who termed it a role model for Indian cities. Amitabh Kant, CEO of the National Institution for Transforming India, noted that the centre was, “Extremely well conceptualised, planned, and executed. The solution will enable Chhattisgarh to technologically leap-frog. The infrastructure created is world class. The city is futuristic.”
The Abu Dhabi National Oil Company is the state-owned oil company of Abu Dhabi and the principle catalyst for the Emirate’s development. ADNOC is one of the world’s leading energy producers. ADNOC is maximising value from its reserves and operations, and helping to drive its digital transformation is AVEVA.
No stranger to global market volatility, oil and gas producers are using Industrial IoT, big data, advanced visualisation and artificial intelligence to integrate and maximise return across asset and operation value chains. With AVEVA, ADNOC combines technology with industry expertise and proven experience into a concept they call Oil and Gas 4.0.
ADNOC’s Panorama Digital Command Centre is a fully integrated, real-time data visualisation centre that empowers ADNOC’s sharpest minds to gain insights, unlock efficiencies, and identify new pathways to optimise performance. As ADNOC continues to be a reliable worldwide provider of energy, and with AVEVA as its partner, they can imagine and realise a more efficient, integrated, and empowered future than the industry has ever known.
Abdul Nasser Al Mughairbi, Senior Vice President, Digital at the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company ADNOC, commented: “ADNOC’s operations across the entire value chain are vast and varied and the Panorama Command Centre gives us unified live data access across all our operations and business units. Modeling, simulations and analytics have also allowed ADNOC to drive greater production efficiencies across the board. AVEVA is a key partner for ADNOC as we continue to adopt the latest technologies and drive our Oil and Gas 4.0 mission to stay ahead of the world’s growing energy demand.”
