Achieving true real-time collaboration between the IT business systems back end and the plant control front end is just not happening – yet. Those that have tried have hit a real-time wall. The competitive business benefits for those that break through this wall include fixed and variable asset cost minimization, predictive maintenance capabilities, and empowerment of operational staff with up-to-date business objectives and business IT staff with timely asset performance metrics.

But, when you connect the two disparate systems, the operational plant managers suspect the IT systems will undermine their plant reliability, and the IT managers knows that the data deluge from the operational side will swamp their network.

What if you could adopt an integrated infrastructure that guarantees no single point of failure for the operational systems?
What if your DCS or PLC data could be made immediately available to your Business Intelligence IT systems at a rate they can deal with?

How Top Plant Managers Avoid Real-Time Chaos

  1. 1. Your systems. Working as one.How Top Plant Managers AvoidReal-Time ChaosWebinar – June 14th 2012 Geoff Revill Real-Time Innovations
  2. 2. Agenda• Brief Company Intro• IT and Control Systems Collaboration – Benefits sought• What’s blocking access to these business benefits? - The RT Wall• How to use the RT Wall as a foundational SoS Element• The Solution – A Real-Time ESB• Summary
  3. 3. About RTI• Market Leader – fast, scalable communications software for real-time operational systems and IT & Business Systems Systems Integration• Pedigree – 20 year+ history in • High-performance highly scalable networking & control • Middleware & Tools• Standards Leader – OMG Board of Directors – Market leader in DDS (Data Distribution Service)• Maturity Leader – 15+ years of commercial availability – U.S. DoD Technology Readiness Level (TRL) 9
  4. 4. ROI Example – JBC-P – Blue Force Tracker Legacy design: DDS design: • Custom, proprietary • 100% standards based • 2-8 years to develop • Proof of concept in under a week • 1.5m lines of source code • 50k lines of source code • 12,000 tracks • 250,000 tracks • 11 servers w/88 cores • 80% of a single core • Poor reliability and uptime • Full redundancy7/23/2012
  5. 5. IT & Operational Collaboration Business Centric Decade Shift from enabling technology to using Available and proven Technology to improve Business Performance through Operational Efficiency
  6. 6. Business Centric• Business Goals • Business Benefits – Return on Assets – Operational Effectiveness – Continuous Improvement – Asset Utilization – Flawless Execution – Minimize Variable Costs – Increased Automation – Reduce Downtime – Total Cost of Ownership – Preserve Capital Assets – Increased Commonality of Infrastructure – Reduce Barriers to Information
  7. 7. The Highest Barrier to Information? TIME
  8. 8. Collaborative Production Management• To be delivered by Collaborative Process Automation Systems (CPAS) – Single, unified environment for the presentation of information to the operator as well as present information in context to the right people at the right time from any point within the system – ARC Advisory Group
  9. 9. CPAS• As defined by ARC Advisory Group – extraordinary performance – continuous improvement – proactive execution – common actionable context – single version of the truth – automate everything that should be automated – facilitate knowledge workers – common infrastructure based on standards
  10. 10. The shift to CPAS
  11. 11. Example: Predictive Maintenance• Is it solely an Operational Control issue? – What about the changing trade off between risk of an asset failing versus cost of maintenance? – What about the changing nature of customer supply demands versus maintenance schedules? – How do your business systems get informed immediately of the consequence of an operational asset failure?
  12. 12. Different Realities Operational Systems IT SystemsArchitecture Decentralized (peer to peer) Centralized data center (hub and spoke)Speed “Real world” (physical processes) HumanData flow Event-driven: sensors, alarms, Transactional, non real-time commands. Extremely time critical.Platforms Tiny embedded or mobile systems Powerful servers through powerful servers Lack integration power Lack performance and scalability
  13. 13. OT and IT Developers think differently• Peer-to-peer • Client-Server• Events, alarms, sensor • Remote Method readings, status updates Invocation• Pub-sub pattern • Request-Reply pattern
  14. 14. The Real-Time Wall Operational Systems IT SystemsArchitecture Decentralized (peer to peer) Centralized data center (hub and spoke) RSpeed “Real world” (physical processes) Human TData flow Event-driven: sensors, alarms, Transactional, non real-time commands. Extremely time critical.Platforms Tiny embedded or mobile systems W Powerful servers through powerful servers A L L Lack integration power Lack performance and scalability
  15. 15. Collaboration drives Scale!• More things producing and consuming data• Greater volume of data• System of systems integration • The Software Architecture must enable change in scale
  16. 16. How do we take down the RT Wall?• What if….? – Every application could dynamically define it’s real- time requirements to the infrastructure? – the infrastructure could sustain a quality of service contract between every communicating entity? – the infrastructure could act like a database and represent system state in real-time?
  17. 17. Turn the RT Wall into a System SWFoundation Operational Systems IT SystemsArchitecture Decentralized (peer to peer) Centralized data center (hub and spoke)Speed “Real world” (physical processes) HumanData flow Event-driven: sensors, alarms, Transactional, non real-time commands.

  18. 18. Using the RT Wall as a FoundationalInfrastructure• IT systems should be able to react to critical real-time Operational Control state changes• OT systems should be able to continuously deliver analyzable metrics for business use• DATA is the Foundational Building Block – IT systems architect around it with their DB’s – OT systems architect around it for state changes• Free Flow of Information is the Goal
  19. 19. Maintaining STATE across IT & OT• System STATE is a function of DATA• Each Application’s need to understand STATE is different – Only needs to know a small subset of system STATE – Has differing requirements and authority for system STATE change• Any Application can contribute to system STATE change• System STATE is the “single version of the truth”
  20. 20. Where is system STATE Maintained?• Where the DATA is – IT in a Database – Operational Control – its on the BUS• But the ‘bus’ is also a means to access the DB• For CPAS and Collaborative Systems – Maintain State on the Bus in order to serve IT and Operational Control systems• STATE needs to be maintained on a DATABUS
  21. 21. Where is STATE Maintained? Information Technology (IT) MobileDevices Plant Business Operations Gartner Traditional ESB Convergence Alignment Integration RTI Connext –– SUSTAINSData Infrastructure DATABUS Common SYSTEM STATE Process Automation Systems Production Management HMI Data/Conf ig Control Alarms I/O Operational Technology (OT) SOA Architecture Peer-to-Peer Global Data Access Reliable Multicast Tools Dynamic Discovery Publish/Subscribe Full Redundancy Quality of Service
  22. 22. The Need for App Defined QoS• De-Couple Application Real-Time needs from the infrastructure – Infrastructure can independently evolve in line with broader distributed systems requirements• Create loose bindings between applications – New Apps ‘discover’ the system’s ability to serve it’s system state needs at run-time• Connect to the DATABUS not to another Application
  23. 23. Connext Foundation: the RTI DataBus™ • Data centric – Structured, accessible data – Like a database for moving data • Independent modules – Supports SOA – Supports RT Applications • Plug and play flexibility Data-Centric Messaging Bus – Like a hardware bus • Peer-to-peer performance – Like streaming protocols • Standards-based interoperability – Like TCP/IP Scalable, high performance, reliable infrastructure
