One of the world's leading providers of chemical plants, refineries, and cement and other industrial plants, ThyssenKrupp Industrial Solutions, has opted to use Siemens' Comos plant engineering and plant management software solution.
Jens-Michael Wegmann, Chief Operating Officer and Director of the Industrial Solutions Business Area, comments: "For us, Comos is a future-proof software solution for holistic plant management over the entire lifecycle of an industrial plant. Consolidating and harmonising the IT infrastructure provides us with the basis to make optimum use of global opportunities for growth in plant construction.”
Andreas Geiss, Vice President, Comos Industry Solutions: “We are delighted at the decision by ThyssenKrupp Industrial Solutions to extend our long-established collaboration to cover the whole of the enterprise. We will bring our expertise and long years of experience to bear in the form of intelligent and individual solution concepts. Our Comos portfolio helps users to meet engineering challenges that arise throughout a plant’s entire lifecycle.”
Comos plant engineering and plant management software encompasses the process engineering of components and plants all the way through to complete automation including operations relevant to electrical engineering, measurement and control.
The function planning complies with standards, and is therefore implemented efficiently and accurately right through to the automation, by way of the process design, basic and detail engineering phases and operations.
Comos is designed to be a consistent system landscape from engineering through to operation and enables users to achieve higher plant efficiency through all phases of the lifecycle.
It also raises quality in all steps of the engineering workflow and cuts times-to-market by means of measures such as parallelisation.
Jobs such as process engineering or design of the electrical engineering can be carried out in parallel with automation engineering.
Due to its open system architecture, Comos also provides numerous interfaces to other systems and seamless integration in existing IT landscapes such as Simatic PCS 7
