When a team has a deep understanding of operations as they happen, they have what is called operational awareness. They know how equipment is performing, they monitor key metrics, and they know what actions to take based on analytics, rather than relying on ‘gut feeling’ or experience alone.
To give teams that operational awareness, you must show them the whole picture, so they understand how pieces of the system affect and interact with one another. When teams share the same information and understand how their decisions impact each part of the business, they can ensure systems are integrated rather than operating in isolation.
Holistic operation control software is one way to provide a common understanding of the business. Intuitive applications with comprehensive visualization allow teams to access the information they need to understand operations from edge to enterprise. They can manage alarms, work remotely, and analyze data in real-time without information overload.
