Most process automation project teams do not work in a single room, or at the same time, or even at the same location. Yet, successful projects require members to share files and communicate effectively. Project missteps can cause delays because the team does not have enough flexibility to accommodate changes.
To help teams manage change, Emerson’s Remote Virtual Office (RVO) collaboration platform provides secure, reliable, distributed engineering of automation projects on a common infrastructure that reduces overall project schedule, cost, and risk.
Unique virtualization technology is at the center of Remote Virtual Office — enabling project teams, clients, and suppliers to collaborate independent of location in a virtual engineering and testing environment where even Factory Acceptance Testing (FAT) can be performed in a virtual environment.
Integrate Applications with Ease
Integrate applications by using remote access to a common virtual office environment and system database. The integration ultimately encourages information sharing, standardization of processes, and communication of changes.
Work Together and Test Remotely
Because the RVO engineering infrastructure is available on demand, configuration and prototyping can start on day-one of a project, and all changes going forward can be shared in the common virtual environment. Multiple users and multiple suppliers can collaborate in design, development, and test without the expense and coordination of travel to a central location. The team can conduct important testing, including FAT and integration tests, with I/O subsystems or DCS controllers built into skids before they are shipped to the plant site.
Address Changes Quickly by Accessing Help Worldwide
You don’t have to face changes alone – gain access to over 6,800 project and service professionals distributed globally. Emerson’s Project Management Office (PMO) provides global management of RVO knowledge to share best practices and processes. Working in the RVO environment, teams worldwide have access to expert service and advice in areas such as design, engineering, third-party testing, and customer FAT.
