Invensys to implement mobile solutions for Chevron
02/25/2010PLANO, Texas -- Invensys Operations Management has announced that it has contracted with Chevron to provide the Wonderware IntelaTrac mobile workforce and decision-support system. The mobile solution will support Chevron's upstream operations with configurable software and ruggedized mobile hardware solutions that enable workers to better manage workflow, procedural and general management tasks which focus on plant, production and field operations, maintenance management, production, inventory and logistics tracking, and compliance applications.
Invensys will provide the IntelaTrac solution to assist operators, field engineers, technicians and supervisors in creating inspection and regulatory procedures. It also will assign, schedule and execute rounds and report findings that are prioritized based on the level of severity of the issue. IntelaTrac provides the capabilities for an organization to create and define procedures based on best practices, as well as regulatory compliance rules and regulations. Procedures are re-usable across many operator and technician rounds to ensure that inspections are performed on a routine basis as mandated by overall corporate policies, as well as regulatory agencies.
"Chevron wants a mobile platform capable of supporting many business work processes and an 'out of the box' solution," said Eric Moorehead, Invensys Operations Management North America Client Care executive program leader. "Our IntelaTrac solution has been used by Chevron in its downstream business process for several years. By extending the availability of IntelaTrac, Chevron anticipates being able to support many new business processes using a single mobile platform for operations, maintenance, reliability tracking, production data collection and safety inspections across the enterprise."
Chevron has been using Invensys solutions since the early 1990s for its downstream operations to standardize refinery process steps and deliver decision support to field workers. Invensys solutions currently deployed at Chevron include Triconex safety systems, Wonderware IntelaTrac, Wonderware InTouch human-machine interface, Wonderware System Platform, Wonderware Historian and Wonderware ActiveFactory, a trending, analysis and reporting application.
