MAPS AGENT SERVER – AGENT DEFINITION Agent (I/O) Server Basic Agents Analogue Digital String Advanced Agents OEE Counter DB Access Scripting etc System System Information HASP (license) Device Scan User Defined UDT Custom More than 45 different Agent types
MAPS AGENT SERVER – AGENT DEFINITION Agents are called Agents because, instead of only containing data, like simple database records, they also usually contain the ability to operate or act on their own data, driving its values and to read and write to other objects, and so influence them. This concept is very much in line with object-oriented thinking, and is primarily why we refer to Adroit as being "object-oriented".
OBJECT BASED TECHNOLOGY All Agents are Intelligent Objects – contain state information, behaviours and action (combined sum of conditions) Custom Agents – Build own objects to represent plant items and equipment User Defined Types (UDT depends on protocol support) Each Agent type is a Dynamic Link Library (DLL)
BASIC AGENTS - DIGITAL Agent Type – Digital Agent Name – DIG01 Properties Available Description - DIG01.agentdescription Value - DIG01.value TextValue – DIG01.textvalue
Statistical Agent The Statistical agent provides the basic functionality for a user to build a statistical process control strategy using its built in data collection method and by linking to other internal agents.

AMA (Alarm Management and Analysis) Benefits from using this product Improved Productivity Improved Performance Better Decision Making around Asset Management Distinguish between Alarms and Events All reports based on ISA 18.02, EEMUA 191 Ease of Use
Alarm System Terminology An Alarm is an event to which an operator must react, respond and acknowledge. An Alarm System is there to prevent, or at least minimize, physical and economic loss through operator intervention in response to the condition that was alarmed on any given process. Secondly, an Alarm System should provide and alarm and event log.
Current Problems Alarm flooding during plant upset Too many standing alarms – accepted as ‘normal’ Too many ‘high’ priority alarms Lack of real information to support decision making
Consequences Operators presented with too many alarms may overlook an important indicator of an abnormal situation, or be so overwhelmed as to unnecessarily trip the unit as a safety measure instead of trying to decipher the information being conveyed. Both scenarios can significantly impact the safety of plant personnel and the efficiency of plant operations.
Benefits of using AMA Measure and improve Alarm System Performance Analyse historical alarms – Highlight unwanted / unnecessary alarms – Highlight problem areas in the plant Analyse alarms and associated process variables Monitor operator alarm interaction Valuable part of an alarm management strategy

Operator Performance Alarms acknowledged in time List alarms not acknowledged in time Acknowledged incidents per hour
Reporting and Analysis of SCADA data made easy Reporting and Analysis of SCADA data made easy
Challenges with SCADA / PLC Data Unstructured with no business context Data requires processing Huge amounts of data to manage Difficult to extract, process and present the data in reports Difficult to analyse
Challenges – Relational database Relational design is very specific to each reporting solution SQL skills required to design the database Data insertion is more complex Must understand relationships to retrieve data
Adroit SCADA Intelligence (ASI) ASI is data warehousing system which collects and processes data from disparate data sources and makes the resulting information available on a common platform to enable decision making.
