Engineering & plant management software solution selected by plant construction specialist.

ThyssenKrupp Industrial Solutions, the plant construction specialist within the ThyssenKrupp group, has opted to use Siemens' Comos plant engineering and plant management software solution with immediate effect throughout the company as part of the further integration of its global plant construction business. The Process Technologies unit (formerly Uhde) has in fact been using Comos since 1997. Using standard software enables ThyssenKrupp Industrial Solutions to handle global engineering processes and plant management much faster and more efficiently. The company is one of the world's leading providers of chemical plants, refineries, and cement and other industrial plants, along with plants for mining, ore processing and port handling.

Jens-Michael Wegmann, Chief Operating Officer and Director of the Industrial Solutions Business Area, comments: "For us, Comos is a future-proof software solution for holistic plant management over the entire lifecycle of an industrial plant. Consolidating and harmonizing the IT infrastructure provides us with the basis to make optimum use of global opportunities for growth in plant construction."

Andreas Geiss, Vice President, Comos Industry Solutions: "We are delighted at the decision by ThyssenKrupp Industrial Solutions to extend our long-established collaboration to cover the whole of the enterprise. We will bring our expertise and long years of experience to bear in the form of intelligent and individual solution concepts. Our Comos portfolio helps users to meet engineering challenges that arise throughout a plant's entire lifecycle."

Comos plant engineering and plant management software encompasses the process engineering of components and plants all the way through to complete automation including operations relevant to electrical engineering, measurement and control. The function planning complies with standards, and is therefore implemented efficiently and accurately right through to the automation, by way of the process design, basic and detail engineering phases and operations. Comos is a consistent system landscape from engineering through to operation. It enables the user to achieve higher plant efficiency through all phases of the lifecycle.

The uniform data platform of the Comos software solution gives plant designers, operators, and installers a seamless flow of project-relevant data across all company levels and project phases. This facilitates a comprehensive software solution concept that can be integrated globally. Consistent plant lifecycle engineering with the Comos software solution intermeshes the engineering and operating worlds to provide holistic plant management over the entire lifecycle of an industrial plant. Workflows become more efficient, productivity and quality in engineering are raised. Plant data is always kept up to date and consistent throughout the entire lifecycle.

Integrated engineering reduces sources of error as there are fewer interfaces between the various technical subsystems. It also raises quality in all steps of the engineering workflow and cuts times-to-market by means of measures such as parallelization. Jobs such as process engineering or design of the electrical engineering can be carried out in parallel with automation engineering. Thanks to its open system architecture, Comos provides numerous interfaces to other systems and seamless integration in existing IT landscapes. For example, Comos EI&C features interfaces to major automation systems such as Simatic PCS 7.
