Enables managing of operating facility, controlling major processes and integrating the existing SAP enterprise resource planning
Invensys Operations Management, a provider of technology systems, software offerings and consulting services to the manufacturing and infrastructure operations industries, has implemented an InFusion Enterprise Control System (ECS) for ExxonMobil Lubricants & Specialties Company.
The InFusion ECS enables to manage the operating facility, controlling major processes and integrating the existing SAP enterprise resource planning, batch process and final packaging and shipping systems.
The ECS will apply the principles of real-time process automation across the manufacturing enterprise to improve production flexibility and workflow, and address end-of-life issues within the existing control systems, claims the company.
As part of its ongoing relationship with ExxonMobil, Invensys is also using its Houston, Texas, Engineering Center of Excellence to incorporate best practices for ExxonMobil in Beaumont and Port Allen, La.
This approach is enabling ExxonMobil to improve its control system strategies and achieve its goal of developing the lube plant of the future.
Invensys Operations Management vice president strategic accounts Eric Moorehead said the InFusion ECS installation at Beaumont continues the modernisation effort.
"Operating as a ‘system of systems,’ the InFusion ECS holistically integrates our open technology with legacy applications and third-party offerings to improve the plant’s operations and performance in real time. This unique ability is what sets the InFusion ECS apart from anything on the market today," Moorehead said.
