Systems thinking is not a new concept to Systems Engineers. A deep understanding of the way components interact, interrelate and interdepend to form a complex and unified system is at the heart of any well-designed monitoring and control system. In the complex world of smart infrastructure, the need for systems thinking has never been greater. From Smart Cities to campus management, integrated traffic control to Smart Airport operations, the interaction between people, process and technology requires a single view to derive operational insights. At AVEVA, we call this our “System of Systems” approach.

Due to population growth and rapid urbanization, growing cities are presented with challenges revolving around a dependency on aging infrastructure, which when coupled with increasing budgetary constraints, means that replacement costs for such capital-intensive infrastructure is simply too high. Converting existing infrastructure into “Smart Infrastructure” is the key to making cities more efficient, more manageable, and ultimately, more liveable.

  • CHALLENGE

    Smart Cities Are Complex. Technology Shouldn’t Be.

    Improving operational efficiency through the breaking down of historical information silos, seamlessly aggregating data from a plethora of hardware and software sources, and delivering valuable, contextual and actionable insights, is what complex automation projects involve.

    For Smart Cities, this challenge is magnified by the interconnected, real-time nature of the systems and processes being monitored and controlled – either centrally, or remotely – and the expectations of people relying on these systems to participate in day-to-day urban living… and be happy whilst participating.

     

    SOLUTION

    System Platform.

    System Platform is an integrated, real-time supervisory control solution that is integral to operational processes and systems. It serves as the single source of actionable information for operational, engineering and business users for sustainable service delivery and continuous performance improvement.

  • CHALLENGE

    Managing Capital-Intensive Infrastructure Assets Is Critical.

    Management of modern city infrastructure can include the management of assets such as buildings and facilities, transport stock (buses, trams and trains), power distribution, bridges and tunnels, lighting, security and surveillance equipment, and increasingly, data centers, Wi-Fi and communication networks.

    The combination of assets with connected devices, and most importantly, the data captured for each of these assets, introduces the need for technology solutions to harmonise disparate data, as well as provide a single view into maintenance needs, downtime predictions, and scheduling of proactive maintenance.

    SOLUTION

    Asset Performance Management.

    Customers adopting well considered Asset Performance Management (APM) strategies are already seeing results through improved asset utilization and reliability, reduced planned and unplanned outages of critical infrastructure assets, increased workforce productivity, efficiency and overall high asset availability.

  • CHALLENGE

    Efficiency + Sustainability Determine Liveability!

    An increasing trend, being driven partly by the focus on cities to become “smart”, is the growing demand for centralised Command and Control Centers.

    This demand is not new. Private companies have been implementing Operation Centers for many years. Few private companies, however, have the complexity of disparate data silos, multi-vendor system architectures, and the sheer number of many millions of citizen consumers relying on their infrastructure to participate in an economically viable and seamlessly functioning society.


    SOLUTION

    System of Systems.

    Command and Control Centers, based on our System of Systems technology platform, leverages information from various data sources to drive better operational decisions, anticipate and proactively resolve issues, and ultimately, coordinate resources and processes to operate efficiently, seamlessly and sustainably.
