Emerson Integrates Logbooks With DeltaV

Aug. 25, 2015
Emerson integrates logbook functionality with distributed control system to improve operator efficiency.

Emerson Process Management Logbooks

Emerson Process Management’s Logbooks, an electronic database of operator log entries, embeds in the DeltaV distributed control system interface to improve task management and enable more effective shift handovers with real-time visibility to active entries, according to the company. Users can access Logbooks directly from their DeltaV workstations to view shift-based dashboards that highlight relevant log entries for the operations team.

Task management with Logbooks reportedly helps operators respond more quickly to high priority tasks. With event monitoring, logbook entries are automatically created from DeltaV events. These entries can then trigger additional tasks in the system or flag issues to raise attention. The shift dashboard displays task status and existing flags to ensure necessary work is not missed.

Operators can identify their priority tasks with Logbooks with a customized dashboard for each user. Relevant log entries and assigned tasks are displayed and responsibilities are clearly defined for the operator.
