Design and functions

COMOS information such as data and documents can be viewed via web browser without the need to use a COMOS desktop installation. This enables mobility and flexibility in retrieving and reading information. The technology allows COMOS content to be made available to a broader user group like managers, controllers and subcontractors, for example. The COMOS Web Server, which was designed on the basis of a service-oriented architecture (SOA), is intended for use with further clients and applications.

With COMOS WebView, plant information can be viewed outside of the company’s own network. The web server-based solution provides access to all information via the Internet. It enables the user to:

  • View the navigation structure and the object properties

  • View a PDF of the latest revision

  • Run and view predefined queries

  • Navigate between data and documents

  • Search in objects and revisions

COMOS WebPQM provides location independent document management capabilities including the following features:

  • Upload, check-out/check-in COMOS PQM documents via the Internet

  • View and edit COMOS engineering data via a web interface

  • Follow quick links to COMOS objects and documents

  • Review and release COMOS documents


Security information

To ensure the secure operation of a plant or machine it is also necessary to take suitable preventive action (e.g. cell protection concept) and to integrate the automation and drive components into a state-of-the-art holistic industrial security concept for the entire plant or machine. Any third-party products that may be in use must also be taken into account.
