08/01/2011


Invensys Operations Management released ArchestrA Workflow Version 1.1, its latest business process management solution for industrial enterprise. The new version adds integration to IntelaTrac, the company’s mobile solution, and its Wonderware Manufacturing Execution System (MES) Operations and Performance solution. Now, manufacturing and process companies can reportedly drive better accountability, more consistent operations and improved regulatory compliance through a workflow software solution integrated with their existing automation and plant information systems. 

Product overview:

ArchestrA Workflow software is an advanced workflow application that helps computerize manual and automated industrial processes that involve people and systems. A highly flexible solution, ArchestrA Workflow reportedly allows workers to participate in approved workflows regardless if they are mobile, behind a desk or out operating the plant. The solution has broad connectivity with plant floor and corporate systems so the entire workflow process can be modeled, executed, analyzed and improved. Workflows can be linked to a wide range of plant automation and other plant systems so workers can participate in a workflow without having to leave what they are doing, enhancing collaboration and process consistency.

Key capabilities: 

  • Enforces best practices and standard operating procedures across entire enterprise. 
  • Supports regulatory compliance and audits.
  • Streamlines the response to abnormal events and drives approved remedial action.
  • Helps computerize operating knowledge and operating procedures.
  • Links to mobile systems, manufacturing execution systems and other plant systems.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
