Mobile Apps for Increasing Process Efficiency

By Joy LePree |

Industrial mobile apps help chemical processors overcome process, maintenance and inventory issues Due to the portability and propagation of smartphones and tablets, mobility is all around us. Plugging in on the fly has become second nature in our personal lives thanks to mobile applications (apps) that allow users to take pictures and post directly to multiple social media sites in a split second, apps that create personal playlists based upon our musical preferences and a host of other apps that provide modern day conveniences. So, it makes sense that the intersection of mobile apps and the industrial world quickly followed suit. As a result, there’s been a proliferation of industrial mobile apps that conveniently assist with process engineering and maintenance activities, inventory and logistics and even simulations. And, because of the existing comfort level with mobility, chemical processors are quickly and easily embracing these mobile apps as useful tools that help ensure reliability of equipment, process and product quality.   Process and engineering management Reliability of process is the “Holy Grail” of the chemical process industries (CPI) and, as such, apps designed to assist with managing processes are…
