j5 OMS Specificationsj5 OMS is an Enterprise Application Interface (EAN) that manages the Operations in Industrial Sites.
j5 OMS is the market leader in Operations Management and has been chosen by respected Engineering Companies at facilities such as PDVSA, Siemens, Aramco, Chevron, Cheniere, Calpine, Oklahoma Pipelines, Austra-lian Railways, PetroRabigh and Anglo Platinum.
The j5 system is used by hundreds of companies worldwide, having been deployed in many cases by well respected system integrators such as Invensys, Aspen Technology and other international professional engineering companies.
Due to the industrially robust interconnection standards employed within j5 OMS, a number of 'integrated solutions' have been developed and deployed in many applications. The list of applications is continuously being extended (see www.sjsoft.com for the current comprehensive list) and includes the following: j5 OMS ~ IntelaTrac (Wonderware Mobile Solutions); ArchestrA; Avantis; Maximo; OSISoft PI: SAP; MS Office; and various DCS, Web Service, PLC, OPC devices.
Unlike in-house developed applications using Excel, wikis and generic database programs, the j5 OMS comprises a complete and comprehensive suite of tightly integrated operations applications in an extensible frame-work.
The diagram on the top right shows the major aspects of the j5 OMS offering. A more detailed description of these aspects can be found on the back of this page.
Typical Uses of the j5 OMSThe j5 OMS is used in a wide range of Industrial and General Operations Environments through many types of applications and different users, for example:
Corporate Users develop Enterprise wide j5 applications that overcome the limitations in their spreadsheet based solutions.Industrial Users (for example, in Petrochemical, Power or Utility facilities) use one of the "Off the Shelf" applications in their environ-ment. (See the table of Applications on the right.)Industrial or General users quickly develop a custom application using the powerful tools that are built into the j5 OMS System.
j5 Logbook: Just one of the j5 OMS portfolio of more than 50 ApplicationsThe j5 Logbook is a corporate wide electronic logbook designed for Industrial Operating Conditions. It replaces the paper-based logbook that is typically situated in most control rooms or technical and maintenance workshops.
The j5 Logbook can service many hundreds of users in different areas of the process and will link seamlessly with other j5 OMS applications like the j5 Handover Logs, Shift Reports, Inspection Rounds, Laboratory Records etc.
