The Oil industry is one of the pioneers in the widespread adoption of optimization techniques. The term “Refinery optimization” has consequently evolved to become a multi-faceted concept.
At an abstract level, refinery optimization is about getting the most from the existing assets; by extension, it can also refer to the most profitable investments in new equipment or new assets. This first distinction gives rise to 2 horizons of application to refinery optimization: long term, structural optimization, and short term operations optimization. Moreover, operations management itself can be addressed in a variety of ways, depending on whether the approach taken to refinery optimization is bottom-up, or top-down:
The top-down approach is based on hierarchical optimization: the refinery optimization problem is addressed as a succession of optimization problems of different time magnitudes and granularities. The first problem is a mid-term planning problem and is concerned with the refinery as a whole and a time frame of one to several months. Subsequently, the time frame is subdivided into finer time intervals. At the lowest level, the theoretical goal is to achieve operations scheduling on a day to day basis.
The bottom-up approach is one that starts with local problems and tries to aggregate them into a consistent solution at the refinery level.
In contrast to traditional bottom-up approaches – which attempt to build an overall solution by aggregating local solutions – we start by achieving a feasible, “good quality” overall solution using our smart simulation engine. Then, guided by the consistent overall solution, we seek to optimize local operational challenges.
Our innovative approach to refinery optimization takes account of 2 crucial facts:
- Day-to-day operations are subject to uncertainty,
- Regardless of the inherent formal difficulty of achieving an overall refinery schedule optimization, an overall optimized schedule is of little use.
This is simply because an overall solution achieved that way is inherently unstable: the slightest change or unforeseen event means that the whole schedule must be rebuilt. And given the huge amount of inertia in such a large system, any sudden change of trajectory consumes an equally huge amount of energy.
Under this pragmatic perspective, refinery optimization appears as the search for a maintainable globally feasible, locally optimized schedule. Optimization is applied to sub-systems where a high economic impact is achievable.

Founded in 1986, Azteca Systems supports more than 650 customers throughout the United States and around the world ranging in size from single user sites to installations that service millions of people and multiple disciplines. These clients include public works agencies, large and small communities, water/wastewater/stormwater districts, streets and traffic, parks and recreation, facilities, and other organizations involved with capital assets infrastructure and the maintenance associated with its care and operation.
Azteca Systems began as a consulting firm focused on delivering mapping support to US Federal agencies. Earning a solid reputation in the application of Geographic Information Systems (GIS), the company was sought to help public works agencies understand and implement GIS in their organizations. As a result, Azteca Systems’ attention was turned toward the management and care of assets and infrastructure. The company pioneered a new approach to work management with Cityworks and in 1996 released the first iteration of the product.
A recognized industry leader, Azteca Systems created Cityworks, a GIS-centric asset maintenance management solution integrated with Esri’s GIS technology. The Cityworks approach is innovative and unique among a cadre of legacy systems, leveraging the inherent value and investment of GIS data.

Industry 4.0 is the technological movement that represents the next phase of manufacture industries which results in a full Digitization
of productive systems, connecting machines, people and processes.
One of the main goals of Prodsmart is to catalyze Industry 4.0
through the mass adoption of the systems that allow all this movement to happen.
We speak directly to the people within the organisation and we empower them. We provide them the ability to make quick decisions, short and autonomous software-implementation processes, with a quote and service level adjusted to their needs and level of usage. But Prodsmart’s relationship with people doesn’t stop here: we are a layer of virtual automation which transforms any production line into a smart digital factory, bringing the people, the processes and the machines together, converting the operators into knowledge workers and aiding the managers to take informed decisions.
We feel that the concept of Industry 4.0
is deeply broken by leaving the people behind. It is too focused on machines and data and less focused on information, processes and people.
However, the majority of the manufacturing landscape is comprised of very small businesses, which do not have access to the level of sophistication that’s being discussed. The role of the people is extremely important in manufacturing SMEs.
We do believe that in a world that is becoming more and more digital the most important element in technology is the people and this is reflected in the way we approach and engage with our current and future users.
What is Cityworks?
Cityworks empowers GIS to manage both physical infrastructure and land-focused asset management. Organizations allocate considerable resources toward developing and maintaining their GIS, Cityworks capitalizes on this valuable resource. Cityworks and Esri ArcGIS combine to make the perfect platform for designing and creating GIS-centric public asset management solutions.
Service requests, work orders, inspections, and projects are used to track citizen concerns and all types of work activities—cyclical or reactive—with their associated costs. Map layers can be created to display information such as all open requests, pavement condition, all repaired potholes for a given time period, etc. Reports of all types can be generated on the fly using various search parameters or set up as customized templates. Cityworks empowers staff at all levels—field workers, call takers, and administration—to get the information they need to perform their jobs efficiently and make wise use of the resources to manage assets and provide services. Adding Cityworks Server PLL to a deployment provides all the land-focused asset management capabilities for permitting, licensing, and code enforcement
In order to effectively manage assets, one needs to know what and where they are. At the core of any asset management system is an asset inventory. Cityworks is uniquely designed to utilize the GIS geodatabase as the asset inventory. Though other approaches may interface with a GIS – generally for map visualization – Cityworks truly utilizes the GIS geodatabase as the asset inventory.
Cityworks leverages the inherent value of a GIS-centric, enterprise asset inventory by not only managing the assets and their associated attributes (type, condition, installation date, etc.), but also the work done to care for assets. The linkage between assets and work orders is maintained such that the history of completed work orders against a specific asset is viewable and is easily retrieved. If an asset is not yet identified in the geodatabase, Cityworks can manage work performed by associating it to a valid address and later seamlessly updating the history once the asset is reflected in the geodatabase.
Unique to GIS, assets can be modeled in real-world representations. Features can be shown on an intuitive map view and visualized in a hierarchy table form. An asset can be represented as a point, line or polygon feature. As well, related assets can be attached to a primary feature, allowing for a visualization of assets that are traditionally difficult to see in map views. For example, a traffic signal can be modeled as a point—the point being the base or mounting platform upon which the traffic signal pole stands. Various items such as crossing signals, pedestrian buttons, junction boxes and mast arms can all be attached to the pole (point) as related objects—each as a separate asset.
Maintenance management can only be performed with an accurate asset inventory. Today, most maintenance management systems have incorporated the practices of asset and maintenance management together into a single application. Cityworks is unique in that it also brings the location component of these features into the System Environment
. Being built on top of the leading GIS software, Cityworks brings together powerful technologies into an intuitive, easy-to-use interface to perform both asset and maintenance management.
