  • One of WIN-911’s chief functions is to leverage the IIoT environment to filter, escalate, and route machine alarms to appropriate personnel and devices in an operationally intelligent manner. WIN-911 easily integrates with most control software (SCADA, HMI and/or DCS) systems in the marketplace.

    With WIN-911, operators can concentrate on other tasks while the system does the monitoring. 189 of the Fortune 500 companies and 118 of the Global 500 companies use WIN-911 to manage alarm notification.

  • WIN-911: ALERT System Assists Air Liquide's SCADA System FabView
    For many industrial operations involving the distribution of gas in, say, a manufacturing plant, there are numerous risks involved such as leaks. Like most operations of its type, such facilities can ill afford much downtime.
    WIN-911: MICROMEDIA’S ALERT ASSISTS AIR LIQUIDE’S SCADA SYSTEM FABVIEW
    WIN-911’s partner product ALERT is a key element in the Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) system “FabView” from Air Liquide. Air Liquide is the second largest supplier of industrial gasses in the world. This SCADA alarm notification system is specifically designed to monitor, among other things, the distribution of gas in a semiconductor manufacturing plant located in Dresden Germany. Like most operations of its type, this facility can’t afford much downtime in its distribution facility. If ALERT detects a leak in a pipeline, the system evaluates how severe the leak is and transfers the data back to the central site or home office. Once the information is back in the main office, the SCADA alert system then transcribes the data into understandable messages to which employees can respond appropriately.
    WIN-911: WEST TEXAS GAS TRUSTS WIN-911 ALARM NOTIFICATION SOFTWARE
    It became clear that the SCADA system was not an infallible means ofmonitoring field stations; the systems would sometimes lose connection with the host computer. This caused delays in personnel response to alarms and increased the risk of severe warnings not being received before corrective actions could be implemented. As a precaution, the alarm points had to be visually monitored and staff would be required to call the appropriate personnel if an alarm came through. Regulations wereestablished for timely reporting. The management at West Texas Gas quickly determined that a secondary alarm support system needed to be installed. They were seeking something that would be able to monitor variable tags from the OPC server as well as monitor custom tags that were built into the existing SV32 SCADA system to observe and report flare volumes.

    Princeps
    PRINCEPS is an R&D intensive company. We have conducted a significant R&D effort in cooperation with academic organisations in Europe (PRINCEPS is the initiator and coordinator of several EU funded projects).Strong with more than 15 years field experience through planning and scheduling projects worldwide, we have developed an innovative software suite which introduces a new paradigm in this domain.Most importantly, PRINCEPS has developed over the years, a strong working partnership with its clients, which is at the foundation of its customer oriented culture.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.
