The advent of the new computer systems, the systems of signal processing, auto-identification and simulation algorithms and knowledge management, imposed a new approach for systems control and industrial command, enabling new more advanced reliability and availability models of equipments and systems.




The WEB systems, broadband signal transmission, performed the material complement that allied to the new algorithms and software applications, increased an announced revolution to the industrial procedures, distance production control and industrial systems productivity.

It would be incipient obtaining larger operational reliability, without incorporating step by step the new means and devices that allow the perfect execution of the professional mission, incorporating the new gestures, understanding the largest safety of the systems, effective inter operability, and events real-time integration.

These components enable in fact in a wide scale economical optimization, mainly in the economy over the lifecycle management of the assets, maintenance, production, product quality, but mainly preventing unexpected breakdown with damages, resulting in deteriorations of the whole company profile.

The studies demonstrate that for all interconnected productive corporations (including their Systems and Subsystems), the costs of an unexpected simple breakdown, that lasts long for a dozen of hours can commit the company annual profile, if it has consequences of equipments replacement, but mainly that this cost overcomes completely the costs of countless times of the project and installation of new control and command systems.

These systems don't request usually anything besides most of the installed sensors and probes, and access to these signals, interpolated in new applications and simulators that allow obtaining and forecast events previously operated only by estimations. Usually in the requirements of better performances, new components can be added gradually, presenting insignificant costs in face of the benefits.

The benefits add to the spare parts stock reduction and optimization, maintenance crew and interventions, obtaining a comfortable predictability that enables to improve the overall production facilities effectiveness and final products quality.


Incorporating recognized technologies, the new control systems allow wide integration of update results from advanced Research & Development, in the intention of equipping the company with the best benefit over assets, to obtain reliable data for decision-making and to extend the equipments and facilities operating life.

For this outcome a wide international team is available, intervening exclusively in their individual competences when requested. They will establish for the Industrial Companies, innovative technology transfers from advanced researches centers, with recognized successes, and integrating to the processes the modern means, following effectively the trends of the largest international corporations.





The project pilot-model for industrial plants, allow simultaneously interconnecting in the same WEB platform system each one interfaces of operation and control, proceed developing an open re-programmable system, within broad incorporation of the management mechanisms of the facilities production.

The systems integrate the operators training according to the new international patterns.

The principal objective, assisting to the corporation demands is to obtain the integration among the different programs, incorporating to the operational systematic already developed with the increment of the advanced methodologies and simultaneously improving reliability.

The current pilot-model project consists of the following developments:

1. WEB Portal platform, integrating the existent monitoring systems into the plant operation platform, contributing to improve real-time integrated plant operation system.

2. Development of KM-Knowledge Management Platform

3. Integration of advanced On-line Training systems

Opening from the audit over existent controls, sensors and commands resuming a complete project proposal of e-Monitoring and e-Maintenance systems as result of the project presented by the experts of each application section for achievement in the second phase term.

These logics establish the implantation of devices for further installation of advanced operating simulators, monitoring and maintenance proceedings for the forecasting of systems degradation, components failure and increasing in the operational safety.
In this sense recommendation of complementary devices of sensors, probes, supplementary commanded controls might be possible.

At the technological level, the insert of advanced technologies and simulations, will enable to insert training formulas adapted to the most modern methods practices of Information and Communication Technology, incorporating benefits of integration of the computer science technology, and integrating the control tools and modern monitoring that improve the professional performance and the efficiency of the system.

The program introduces an operational systematic control that will integrate into each evolution in the production facilities field, control, maintenance, safety, quality of services, computer science, incorporating larger assets lifecycle, expressive reduction of unexpected breakdowns and emergency maintenances, as well current damages of incidents.

The pilot-model system allows accompanying the productivity advantages obtained essentially due to the advanced methodologies and training technologies application.

Using and integrating simulators into the operational system mechanisms, guides of procedures, decision-support and instruction systems applying outstanding technologies developed and simultaneously integrated into the adoption of new tools or evolution of facilities.




The progresses of the electronic systems, digital networks, broadband transmissions, effectively imposed new conditions for industrial systems operation.

Introducing new possibilities through the use of digital signals, information, image, allowing the diagnosis, analysis and implementation of simulations and incorporating to human decision, the increments of new algorithms, and the evaluation of data in real time, support the decision-making.

The control sections, command, operation of systems through use of simple WEB platforms became powerful means of systems monitoring, decision-support, and processes optimization with employments of technologies such as e-Monitoring and e-Maintenance.

In this process, one part is pragmatic, as the installation of systems of embedded devices, sensors, networks, portal WEB, computers, and broadband transmission, and another is Research & Development in view of the wide opportunities of adoption of means to optimize the processes, reducing the failure, wastes, optimizing the production and product quality, and invariably increasing the life of the assets with maintenance reduction.

In this sense the industrial systems are individual, with subsystems, equipments and own operation conditions, what invokes a certain improvement for several factors, where the Research & Development can build the best conditioning for the processes, for the use of the own knowledge and experience, historical and information in the integrated improvement of the systems.

Within this sense an international team containing the best exponents in each section is established to propose enhanced methods, within technology transfer of recent researches, to set up optimized and efficient individual models.

These international teams and experts will intervene subject to requirements of developments previously recommended and approved (stage by stage), launching resources implementation into the systems denominated intelligent destined to optimization. Others intervene exclusively for the annexation of accessories and applications within the expert systems.

This methodology is adopted in a tailor pilot-model justified by the inexistence of a single solution, as a software or application that might interconnect all the elements involved in the modern industrial challenge.

The method implements evolutionary systems, allowing the evaluation on each stage and whole systems evolution within an adaptive vision and decision-support attitude for the improvement of the productive systems and services.




The multiple existent approaches for failure discovery and diagnosis systems are methods of after the fact, i.e., the failure happened and the machine or system has definitive breakdown or hopeless degradation.
An approach more cost-effective is adaptively to discover and to prevent failure so that the catastrophic breakdown and machine downtime can be reduced to the minimum.

The notable new progresses in process, sensor and actuators technology is revolutionizing the Monitoring reliability (analysis of failure adaptable on-line and recovery) for large electronic and electro mechanic systems as automated industrial plants, rolling plants, petrochemicals processes, petroleum and infinity of industrial processes.

Using the techniques based on a combined maintenance analyses (e-Maintenance or Intelligent Maintenance) of main component of simulation computer science, the international consortium members develop a general approach and still particular to state monitoring. The advanced monitoring applications and control support several applications that include:




Control is one of dominating Research & Development areas of the recognized international consortium partners. They applied a massive amount of control techniques as linear control, non-linear control, adaptive control, and networks for many several applications. The research efforts in intelligent control are focused in:

1. Development of maintenance platform-based for decision-support.
2. Control, design and implementation of systems of diagnoses for failure of machines, systems degradation and breakdown reduction.
3. System control and simulation that use mode control and networks.
4. Scanning and survey of controls that use logical management for maintenance.
5. Monitoring of linear actuators using system of neural networks.
6. Control using multiple models.
7. Control of flux of communications networks.
8. Attitude control using neural networks.

Available installation regional teams provide a project of monitoring automation system totally installed, according to advanced prescriptions, with professional instructors using a great variety of training methods.

Multimedia and simulation software can provide personnel's training cost-effective efficiently.


Image & Video Monitoring application areas include image and algorithms of data compression, which can reach 50% reduction in the requested bandwidth for the transmission of data, without loss in quality.

These qualifications are still more important in the images transmission, where modern incorporated systems allow superior levels of compression and transmission of images with CODECs (algorithms of compression-decompression) of high precision and that allow controlling video cameras in real time at distances, to store images and complete sequences, to use filters for leaks and or vapors detection, or even to verify commanding valves, repairs and maintenance and to give operational instructions.




Implantation of technologies support – as flux controls and instrumentation – has a more severe impact through quality improvement practices in the industrial whole production, project engineering, management and supply chain.



Intelligent automation is one of the principles that has been designated the initial task of development for the creation of a modeling and simulation capacity to support wide analyses and concepts of advanced tools.

The order of command tasks integrated to the development of systems management, increases in wide distributed scale, a simulation structure and an understanding methodology that results in a flexible reconfigurable systems.

The approach integrates a context of open infrastructure that became the industry pattern for wide, multifidelity, distributed simulations.

This application level can be used eventually, within the advanced components optimization of the Industrial systems, subsequent to the implantation of the monitoring systems and basic simulations as recommended in the current pilot-model. It could increase an improved optimization of systems, so much at operational controls level and production and maintenance procedures.
