COMOS is a world-leading IT solution from Siemens Industry Software that provides powerful support for engineers, entrepreneurs and plant owners.
It is widely used by companies in process-based industries, from pharmaceutical manufacturing to municipal wastewater management, as well as in automation-based industries such as vehicle manufacturing. Major industries include:
- Oil & gas
- Pulp & paper
Integrated and multidisciplinary
The greatest benefit with COMOS is that it is an integrated and multidisciplinary solution. All data relating to a plant or project is located in a central database. Information only needs entering once and is then available for use by everyone in the project group.
In most cases, it is possible to replace several different CAD tools, any number of Excel lists and any home-made database. Instead, everything is carried out in a single system.
All drawings, lists and data sheets, etc., are based on the same data and are generated in the system. Information can be extracted in any whatever type of list is needed. And, of course, it is possible to export from and import to Excel.
The plant is represented using a graphical tree structure, making it easy for users to navigate to the right place. It is an object-oriented system where all data, documentation and information is connected under each respective object, such as a pump.
Modular and customizable
A major advantage of COMOS is that it is made up of modules, which means users can grow into the system and gradually increase functionality.
COMOS is also highly customizable, which allows users to configure it according to their needs so it provides full support for their unique processes.
The main modules that can be used together or separately are:
- Engineering »
(process, piping, ventilation, electrical, instrumentation, automation, mechatronics)
- Operations »
(plant register and planning)
- Walkinside 3D simulation »
(operator training, safety)
- Project management & quality
(working methods, document management)
Quality and integration
Quality assurance and traceability are key functions. The use of e-signatures enables a completely digital approval process. COMOS can also be used for document management. For those working in regulated environments, traceability can be extended to provide full support for 21 CFR Part 11.
COMOS is easily integrated with 3D CAD systems, such as PDMS™, control systems, such as PCS7™ and business systems, such as SAP™. By using Microsoft Windows Workflow Foundation™ a seamless workflow can be created between systems.
