How it Works
Accurate logging and tracking of operational events and their impact on performance is a vital task that delivers many benefits. Operational efficiency is enhanced due to the streamlined transfer of information between shift teams and between operators and commercial users. Future performance can be improved through the opportunity created to analyse historical events, learn from them and develop business processes accordingly. And, critically, the maintenance of detailed, reliable health and safety records provides a vital reference point in the event of an incident and can ensure compliance with applicable legislation.
OSL delivers a suite of tools that enables the logging and management of events as they happen. Through a highly configurable user interface, events can be entered and updated using a combination of pre-defined values and free text commentary, improving the quality and structure of the information captured for each event.
Using a web framework, OSL is accessible throughout the organisation ensuring a shared view of all events with scope for personalisation of the information provided at user level.
OSL supports the creation and management of multiple log books. These can be aligned to the needs of individual roles or made available to multiple parties enabling collaboration across the organisation. Common applications for OSL include Shift Engineers Log, Unit Operators Log, Maintenance Activity Log and Project Logs.
All events added to OSL are associated with specific assets, utilising an established equipment coding structure or any other user defined asset hierarchy. Events can be added to the log automatically or manually. Automated logging is highly effective as a means of releasing operator resources from the task of logging routine events such as plant state changes. This is achieved through the capture and application of changes to both analogue meter values and digital tags by OSL.
Manual event logging and tracking utilises a combination of pre-configured fields and free text entries to achieve high levels of data quality and consistency while accommodating the addition of supplementary comments to events. Further content can be added in the form of attachments including digital images and document files to provide context and improve understanding.
Once entered an event can be copied between logs to create a shared view of a single instance of it, avoiding the risk of multiple, inconsistent versions. Recurring manual events can be duplicated within a log for improved efficiency and consistency.
OSL is intrinsically flexible, creating many options for integration with third party systems, enabling you to capture relevant information from your other business systems, creating a consolidated view of events in a single location.
OSL offers a range of predefined report formats and utilises Sequel Server Reporting Services to extend the range of user defined reporting options available.
Application security is highly configurable ensuring that permissions determining read, write and no-access rights are controlled at component level for each role or user.
