Mobile plant management

An ever increasing number of users are enjoying the benefits of engineering software for mobile plant management. Modern web and sharepoint technologies offer users increasing flexibility in terms of global collaboration, help to improve the quality of information, enhance efficiency and save time.

Siemens has now extended its plant management software Comos by the inclusion of a solution for mobile data and document utilization in the form of an iPad app entitled Comos Mobile Document Review.

Users can now edit, review and release plant documentation and manage revision statuses anywhere, anytime with the aid of editing and redlining features – whether on business trips, in meetings or during tours of inspection. Documents from the Comos database are transmitted via a web server in pdf format to the Comos user’s iPad where they are edited offline. Available redlining functions include freehand drawing, insertion of comments and integration of photos taken on site. Once redlining has been completed, a pdf is created and the file returned to the Comos database for further processing.

The Comos App is intuitive to use and can be operated without any prior knowledge of Comos engineering software. All newly loaded documents are immediately visible and their management is simplified by the use of favorites functions.

The App is available in Chinese, German, English and French, and can be downloaded free of charge from the Apple App Store. It works best on the 2nd or 3rd generation iPad.
