Dashboard, reports and other tools are only as good as the data they access.
Taken individually, data sources generally bring valuable information to end users. However, when data sources are assembled together in a single, trusted data set covering industrial operations as a whole, the business value of visualization tools thrives.
Wonderware operational intelligence software synthesizes data from across the plant, revealing relationships that would be all but invisible otherwise. It models Big Data into manageable chunks, so that industrial teams can track performance against the metrics that matter most – in time enough to make a difference.
Discover What Drives Plant Performance
Bring the edge for improved operational decision making and unlock the hidden value in industrial data.
The Business Case
Wonderware Intelligence continuously computes the metrics that are important to improving plant, multi-plant or infrastructure performance.
This enables tighter adherence to operating goals with near real-time resolution. You will be better able to understand the impact of planning, execution, staffing and equipment behavior on key strategy variables such as quality, performance, material and energy consumption.
This powerful solution helps you to maximize return on investment in plant floor and enterprise solutions, unlocking the business relevant context hidden in the distributed data of your existing applications. It adds the information and insight you need for more transparency to the true cost and profit contributions from your operations.
Everyone on the Same Metric
Ensuring that everyone has timely access to their key metrics is critical, but unless metrics are aligned with operational strategies, people could be working at cross-purposes. Wonderware Intelligence enables true operations collaboration by offering actionable information, easy-to-read, easy-to-understand and tailored to the different operational roles in your plant. It allows both expert and casual users to benefit from the specific process know-how that already exists in your operations.
Connect Multiple Plant and Enterprise Data Sources Simultaneously
Wonderware Intelligence software connects multiple plant and enterprise data sources simultaneously, to reveal how disparate industrial operations affect each other. Its tools model these relationships among vast amounts of data in the context of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs). Powerful software then calculates and displays variations in metrics in near real-time. A user-friendly analytics dashboard helps users monitor progress and share results across networks, Web browsers or mobile devices, anytime and anywhere.
Make Strategic Sense Out of Production or Operations Data
Without the organized data modeling of Wonderware Intelligence, making sense of so much data is difficult, if not impossible. With Intelligence’s modeling, you get a single version of operating truth that ERP systems, data warehouses and enterprise business intelligence tools need to make strategic sense out of production or operations data.
Wonderware Intelligence is comprised of two key parts: a server and its clients.
The Intelligence Server provides the core intelligence functionality. Users interact through a development environment to configure the information model and through clients which provide self-service reporting and analytics on desktop computers and mobile devices.
The Intelligence Server – is the heart of the product by providing data acquisition, aggregation, contextualization and organizing data from multiple sources into a single, business-friendly information model. Time-slicing is a unique capability of Intelligence that relates time-series data from process historians with events such as batches, shifts, equipment states etc. enabling calculations and analysis that would otherwise be difficult and error-prone. Intelligence also includes pre-defined models for data sources such as Wonderware MES, InBatch and Alarms empowering end-users with dashboards in a matter of minutes. The Intelligence Server is scalable – from a single site/single server to multiple servers for hosting data from multiple sites
Wonderware Intelligence comes integrated with Tableau Software, which has been positioned by industry analyst Gartner as a Leader in the BI (Business Intelligence) Magic Quadrant since 2013. Tableau Software is a user-friendly analytics and visualization tool, allowing end users from the plant floor to corporate level to explore and analyze Intelligence data, view KPI’s and create charts and dashboards. This self-reliant approach reduces significantly the need for IT services to create reports and dashboards, empowering users to immediately access the information they need.
