Presented at the 2013 Society of Mining, Metallurgy and Exploration Annual Meeting (SME 2013). The main concept of a central control room is the ability to gather and automatically transform information from different sources and mines into business decisions, centralizing and monitoring them from a single location. This central control room also acts as a complete repository of all business operations including mine planning, metrics, asset management, quality and process control, surveillance, sustainability data, emissions, energy efficiency projects, weather and more.

  • In 2009, we launched EcoStruxure – Schneider Electric’s name for our integrated system architectures. In 2012, we are evolving and enhancing the EcoStruxure approach with the launch of StruxureWare. StruxureWare is both “a part of” EcoStruxure – it can be used within our integrated system architectures… … but, it is also a set of “stand alone” software tools and services that are flexible enough to be implemented within existing process and building environments.
  • SXW integrated architecture spans from Operational Technology (OT) to Information Technology (IT). The OT/IT overlap is a challenging facing many organizations our SXW solutions bridge this gap. Bridging this gap means a mature approach to OT security Cyber Security and an IT approach to Information architecture (data models, semantics models, and master data management). We have increased our focus on this two key topics over the last 2 years in order to deliver SXW and we will continue to go further in this direction.
  • To Build an Enterprise Architecture for Operational Efficiency, we focused on each persona, and their user requirements as well as the technical capabilities needed to deliver these user requirements. In Manufacturing, there has been a focus on efficiency for many years as costs have been under constant pressure. This need to find every point of efficiency led to many collaborations in terms of defining a common way to design and implement software that supports efficiency. We therefore used the framework developed through standards such as ISA 88/95/99 and we extended the concepts to buildings and data centers. If we look at these levels we see a number of characteristics that are important: Firstly the people are different at each level. The type of user experience they expect is different (Alarms vs. a notification). The timeliness of data is different. The agility to change hardware/ software is very different at each layer We also see the following trends at each level: Sensing becomes more and more pervasive. Control is more in SMART devices. Embedded control. IP based. Operations software is a key lever for Effiicency so we see growing demand for more functions at this level. We see that Operational Intelligence and Analytics are most powerful when applied across multiple functional area and even segments. Operational people want to optimize energy efficiency, productivity, asset performance etc all at once (not separately). Similarly for Sustainability, we see that our application will span all segments and bring that much needed consolidated view for reporting and analytics. The enterprise no longer tolerates silos of information. Enterprise systems must be connected to the shop floor. Across the levels we also see that OT meets IT - this line is moving down toward the lower layers More and more of these applications are hosted (in the cloud) The demand for cyber security features and functions is growing rapidly as we connect more and more
  • Schneider Electric has a history of building effective, powerful software tools. But, our offering has been a complex network of various applications that have little in common. This far reaching offer can be difficult for customers to understand and select the right applications for their situation. So, we selected some of our best, most robust software applications and organized them into a framework across 3 levels and 7 functions. Different users at different levels have different needs. The machine operator needs millisecond data delivered by a SCADA that allows him to make split second decisions on the plant floor or within a building. The plant manager needs analytics that allow him to analyze trends and optimize assets. The CFO or CEO needs aggregated, monthly or weekly reports that give her a trendline for energy use, cost, carbon, etc. Schneider Electric now has software that perfectly fits each level and business function. Sustainability Planning: To view energy and sustainability issues strategically ensuring all decisions support the financial and operational integrity of your entire enterprise. Energy Management: Flexible and scalable energy management information system that aggregates energy data into a single view to support your energy efficiency initiatives. Business Operations: To maximize business performance and enhance operational efficiency throughout all facilities and processes. Asset Management: To validate that each asset is performing at optimal level and ensure the asset lifecycle is fully optimized. Power Availability: To protect your business from damage and disruptions caused by power outages and power quality issues. Process Control: To control facility processes completely to drive maximum production performance and ensure operational safety. Security: To verify occupants are both protected and able to perform their jobs securely.
  • StruxureWare’s building blocks are software applications. Following the industry standard, ISA 95, they are organized across 3 levels – Control, Operations, Enterprise. They provide you with “Shop Floor to Top Floor” integration across your enterprise. They will be marketed a la carte, as well as in virtual bundles by segment, called “suites”. These suites are not “single products” you order, but integrated bundles with unique functionality specific to the segment.
  • Much of the IT world has been changed by the availability of “the cloud”. We see the potential of this as well and we are capturing this opportunity by providing some of the SXW applications in a SaaS model. Within the EcoStructure program we have developed a Remote Services Platform that provides SXW applications with a single service management (this means common customer registration, user administration, authentication, licensing and e-commerce). The remote services platform will also provide a consolidated platform for managing devices and the data that is delivered to the SaaS based SXW applications later this year. This remote services platform will deliver many new SXW applications in the coming 12 months. More and more connecting pervasive devices to cloud based SXW applications.
