EDMONTON, June 20, 2007 -- Matrikon. Inc. (TSX: MTK) announces the release of NetCalc, a real-time calculation module for its flagship web-based decision support platform, Matrikon™ Operational Insight (formerly known as ProcessNet).
NetCalc is a web-based, wizard-driven tool allowing users to aggregate data from such diverse sources as real-time historians, relational databases, and control systems and perform calculations on that data. The results of these calculations can then be automatically used in trends, process graphics and KPI dashboards within Matrikon Operational Insight or sent to any database, real-time or relational, for long-term storage and access by any other application.
NetCalc offers users the power to:
- Access data from any of their databases and perform calculations combining data from one or more of those databases.
- Display calculations through trends, process graphics, key performance indicators and custom dashboards
- Send the result of the calculations to any existent database
NetCalc works in conjunction with existing ProcessNet installations or as a standalone application. Its intuitive interface makes NetCalc extremely easy to use, requiring minimal training.
“Driving the development of NetCalc was the fact there was no tool on the market allowing users to easily create calculations with data from different systems and system types,” says Pablo Asiron, Matrikon Operational Insight product manager.
“One of the symptoms of this lack is that if you go to any plant today you will see they have a large number Excel files that are used for calculation. This is a high-maintenance, low-reliability, non-real-time practice. NetCalc delivers more reliable results, with less effort, in real time.”
In use in industry since 1997, Matrikon Operational Insight is delivering value to over 500 companies at over 3,000 locations worldwide.
