Communicate and Track Instructions
In a typical industrial site, there are many measurements that are made manually by field operators who generally move around the site with a clipboard according to a pre-planned schedule of measurements. This information is often required to be reported, for example during Shift Handover. The management of these Inspection Rounds is often time consuming and tedious and the storage and later recall of the information is difficult to manage. With the volume of information required to manage operation systems and the pressures on site personnel to perform quickly and efficiently, the traditional interface with desk-based systems is fast becoming untenable. More and more companies are using mobile solutions to deliver important information directly to the operations staff so that they can manage the operations without having to constantly return to their desks. The j5 Mobile offering comprises several different applications and functionality as follows:
- An industrial strength mobile Inspection Rounds system that uses industry standard devices based on popular operating systems, this application has been enhanced by having tighter integration with the j5 Shift Handover application and the addition of a scheduling view like that of a Gantt chart to provide a more graphical view of scheduled and completed Inspection Rounds
- Extends the current j5 Operations Logbook application to mobile devices, delivering current logbook entries of either open or closed status to the field user and allowing the field operator to create new or comment on existing log entries, these entries or edits are also available outside of network connectivity and synchronized when the mobile device comes into range
- Extends the capabilities of the current j5 Standing Orders application, delivering sets of high level operations orders and instructions to the field operator, which may need to be referred to or acknowledged by the user when they are away from the control room.
Mobile Inspection Rounds:
j5 mobile Inspection Rounds supports the design and execution of operator rounds (for field inspections and data collection). This application has been recently enhanced by being built on the SAP Mobile Platform (SMP) and can operate without being connected to a network.
Mobile Operations Logbook:
j5 Mobile extends the current Operations Logbook application to mobile devices, delivering current logbook entries of either open or closed status to the field user and allowing the field operator to create new or comment on existing log entries. These entries or edits are also available outside of network connectivity and synchronized when the mobile device comes into range.
Mobile Standing Orders:
Extends the capabilities of the current Standing Orders application, delivering sets of high level operations orders and instructions to the field operator, which may need to be referred to or acknowledged by the user when they are away from the control room.
