How to easily keep track of assets

Posted by Najat Khalil on Jun 25, 2020 11:58:00 AM

We tend to lose a lot of things around the house like the TV remote, keys, or phone making us add more stress to our lives as we tend to frantically search for these lost items. Fortunately, we live in an era when automation exists, and you can get key finders to locate items. These detectors can be easily attached to things such as keys, bags, wallets, or even your pet, allowing you to quickly find your lost item, saving you time and stress from searching for them. It's as easy as clicking a button and you know where they are.

For the oil and gas industry, tracking the location of assets can also be a challenge. Using Emerson's Zedi Roughneck, a fixed asset management software solution, allows you to track equipment like compressors for example. When a compressor is not used, it is sometimes moved to be utilized at a different site. In my experience, the only person who would have known about this relocation would be the area foreman.

Getting data from remote locations

Posted by Dave Rathnow on Jun 23, 2020 11:38:00 AM

Figuring out how to get the best performance out of small devices called Field Gateways may not sound like the stuff of adventure—and I admit, Daniel Craig will probably not be playing me in a movie anytime soon.

 

Getting the best performance and information storage out of battery-powered Field Gateways means you can monitor and control even the most remote installations—those for whom the nearest telephone pole on the power grid is a couple of counties over.

Freedom to work from anywhere

Posted by Amy Thibault on Jun 18, 2020 10:52:00 AM

Way, way back when dinosaurs roamed the earth, I had a very annoying flip phone that was really only able to make and receive calls and (upon the rare occasion) get and send a few random text messages from other techie types. The main reason I found this phone so annoying is I wanted it to be able to do so much more; and it seemed like it shouldn't be all that difficult to make it happen.

But, that's all there was on the market at the time.

I continuously wondered why on earth someone didn't make them to fetch my email, or have a decent camera in them. Then it finally became a reality and just like that we all became more mobile than we had ever dreamed of being! It was AWESOME being set free from waiting for an email, and unchained from my desk where I would often be found waiting for information to be sent.

Field data done right

Posted by Tosh Taylor on Mar 11, 2020 12:45:00 PM

When we’re placing an order for a great breakfast, we want the server to be an expert on what’s on the menu—especially if we have special dietary needs. And we want them to listen—to be all ears.Oil and gas production field data

That “all ears” attitude is me when I meet with a new client for the first time. I want to know all about their field automation needs and how we can chauffeur them to their destination. Like, be their tour guide.

I’m not pushing a widget or a program. My purpose is to learn about their business and how they are operating today.

Of all your SCADA data, how do you know what you need to know?

Posted by Ed Moore on May 29, 2018 9:51:00 AM

When you go to a restaurant, do you order straight off the menu? Or do you substitute mashed potatoes for fries, do you ask for extra tomatoes, or do you ask for rye instead of wheat? Or do you just ask for a number 5, pay your money and go sit down?

When it comes to ordering reports on your field data, you can’t settle for a “Number 5.” There are certain things you need to see first, there are certain ways you want things listed and there are ways you need it broken out.

Want it “your way?” I’m glad you asked. That’s exactly why we put together Emerson's Zedi Vital.
