Providing access to the latest operational asset information in remote locations

Mark van ‘t Zet, CEO of Radial SG: “Industries that make use of our Viewport solution do not always have good network connectivity from their data centers to all of their assets. For instance, personnel working on marine assets – drilling rigs, ships, production platforms – frequently need to access data from the cloud or from onshore offices. Without a decent network connection, they are faced with unacceptable download times and often resort to using outdated, cached copies. I am very excited to announce that Viewport 5.0 now has remote location support. Our novel, granular update mechanism will be a game changer for everyone that needs to work with up-to-date, trustworthy technical data offshore or in remote locations.”

How it works

A Viewport Server running onshore is connected to the data sources that contain important asset information, such as SharePoint, OpenText, Documentum, SAP PM, Meridian, Ultimo, Maximo, etc. On the remote assets, additional remote Viewport instances are configured and fed with relevant data from the onshore instance.

“What makes Viewport’s Remote Location Support unique, is that we have taken optimization to the extreme”

Viewport processes the changes from any of the connected source systems – new, updated or deleted – and identifies whether they are relevant for a particular asset. Only relevant changes are compressed into encrypted packages and queued for remote processing. These updates are typically around  5 to 50 MB per day. The remote Viewport instance picks up the compressed job files and import them, ensuring all documents and data are kept in sync.

Take the critical part of your DMS content offshore

If you have ever wanted all of your technical data from your document management system or maintenance system available offshore, Viewport 5.0 offers a unique solution.

What’s new in Viewport 4.2

Viewport 4.2 is released with a number of improvements for both end users as well as administrators. This update highlights the most interesting changes for end users.

Dashboard improvements

The following screenshot shows dashboard enhancements, like the list of connected systems that your Viewport combines into a single asset view. In the example below SAP, Maximo and some fileshares are connected to Viewport.

Viewer enhancements

We have added some more flexibility in the main viewer screen and the capability of showing realtime information as on overlay on top of any document that contains tags. In the screenshot below an example of an integration with Osisoft PI, made available by our partner Raster Industrial Automation.

Enhanced searching

Viewport now offers more search filters, such as filtering on the document version as recorded in the source system (e.g. OpenText xECM, SharePoint, Meridian,..).

Feedback improvement

As soons as Viewport becomes the primary viewing interface for asset documents and documents become more valuable, Viewport offers the possibility to report any error in a document no matter where it’s stored or what file type it is. Suppose a document is part of SAP PM, any reported issue is automatically sent to the right person. New in this version is that the feedback form now shows to whom the reported issue is actually sent.

Please contact your reseller for more information on Viewport 4.2 and how to upgrade your version.

Radial SG and ABB introduce a new generation of asset data collaboration solutions

19 December, 2017, Woerden The Netherlands

Radial SG announces an agreement with ABB to include an OEM license of Radial SG Viewport to connect with the CGM P&ID Viewer with every Collaboration Table supplied.

The Collaboration Table is an ergonomically designed 55-inch touchscreen table designed specifically for control rooms in process manufacturing industries. Viewport is a powerful engine incorporating machine learning and shape recognition technology to automatically search and connect asset information from various sources, building tag-document links to provide a single view of all asset data.

The Viewport engine will be used to power the P&ID Viewer on the Collaboration Table, enabling users to collaborate and interrogate asset data on a large format touch screen.  Users can choose to upgrade to a permanent licence to unlock the full features and benefits of Viewport on the Collaboration Table.

Mark van ’t Zet, CEO of Radial SG, commenting on the agreement said, “This is an exciting development in the Radial SG / ABB relationship. Viewport is rapidly gaining recognition as a leading solution for owner operators in process manufacturing industries to search and connect their asset data. By adding our technology to the CGM P&ID Viewer, end users can create their own integrated view from a set of documents in a matter of minutes.”
