August 2, 2019 - AVEVA launched Unified Operations Center, its command-and-control solution for infrastructure operators such as smart cities and facilities management, and for industries like Oil & Gas, and Mining.
Working side-by-side with companies in these verticals, AVEVA has turned practices into templated solutions that are repeatable, scalable and adaptable. Organizations such as the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC), Assmang Proprietary Ltd and the city of Atal Nagar in India have pioneered early versions of this tailored approach.
The Unified Operations Center is a central hub that transforms the control room into a collaborative workspace. Functional silos are broken down by contextualizing operational and business data to enable teams to make better decisions based on accurate, real-time information. AVEVA provides a single solution that integrates IT and OT (Operational Technology) applications in a central hub, enhanced by industry-specific customizations.
AVEVA’s Unified Operations Center, built on AVEVA System Platform, offers solution templates, reports, dashboards and operational KPIs. These unify all available data from operations, process, engineering, maintenance and finance, thereby enabling teams to improve their situational awareness of real-time operations.
Unified Operations Center is based on a ‘system of systems’ approach. This enables plug-in of apps, predictive analytics, CCTV video, GIS maps, ERP systems, Engineering P&ID diagrams and more, all within the unified user interface.
Assmang Proprietary Ltd. turned to AVEVA to centralize operations, consolidate its value chain, and increase situational awareness among 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.”
At Atal Nagar (Naya Raipur), India’s first greenfield Smart City, Unified Operations Center 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 center.
The command and control center were inaugurated by Mr 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 center was “extremely well conceptualized, planned, and executed. The solution will enable Chhattisgarh to technologically leap-frog. The infrastructure created is world class. The city is futuristic.”
