  • 17. Business Drivers for Growth in Remote Operations Management Market• Plant operations are becoming more geographically dispersed• Resources are being found in increasingly hard to reach and hazardous areas• Drive to subsea production• Effort to get people out of harm’s way and reduce personnel requirements : “Lights Out” operation• Need to transport resources over greater distances• The petroleum supply chain is generally not well integrated September 2012 17 © 1994 – 2012 Fieldbus Foundation
  • 18. The Business Challenges• Traditional approach does not work• Move from steady state to dynamic environment• Dynamically changing supply and demand• Tighter production specifications• Increased regulatory pressure• Human resources challenge: Increasingly challenging to send operators to check remote service areas Workers Check a Pipeline in China• Integration of wireless technology Source: AP• Increased focus on cyber security September 2012 18 © 1994 – 2012 Fieldbus Foundation
  • 19. The Old Remote Operations Management Model• Systems collect historical data• End users analyze the data using their tools and their intellect• End user make decisions about the future based on their conclusions and historical data• Steady state environment• “Coordination comes from a central location in a rigid, hierarchical fashion”: ARC Advisory Group• Hard wired• Large degree of customization is often the case• Run to failure September 2012 19 © 1994 – 2012 Fieldbus Foundation
  • 20. Technology Challenge• Integrating disparate wireless technologies: Maybe users want to use both?• Providing increased security and critical infrastructure protection September 2012 20 © 1994 – 2012 Fieldbus Foundation
  • 21. The Opportunity• FOUNDATION for ROM can address these key business issues• Standards based environment that is sustainable• Significantly reduced lifecycle costs• Reduced customization• Increased safety September 201221 © 1994 – 2012 Fieldbus Foundation
