Map the Automation Genome

Nov. 5, 2009
Attempting to capture and contextualize the knowledge embedded in today’s increasingly complex and multifaceted process automation environments has been likened to mapping the human genome. 
Integrity software is designed to automate the process. Integrity builds on earlier generations of automated documentation systems from the vendor, including the DOC3000 and DOC4000 systems for Honeywell DCSs. However, Integrity is not vendor-specific, and can capture data from any source. Moreover, it is not restricted to automation assets but can capture knowledge from paper-based and human sources. Driver-like plug-ins called Asset Models are used to extract and convert data from individual sources into a common data format for the Integrity database. Currently, more than 40 Asset Models are available, covering popular DCSs, PLCs, safety systems, HMI/SCADA packages, historians and asset management packages. Integrity provides a universal framework for aggregating and contextualizing data from across the entire process automation environment. It captures and archives explicit knowledge from each source, mapping the genealogy of the dataflow, and also provides a set of common search, query and reporting functions.
