Honeywell introduces software solutions to help boost offshore production

August 29th, 2014 by Amrinder No comments »

Honeywell Process Solutions has released Digital Suites for Oil and Gas. It is software that is designed to help boost production performance by 3 to 5% while improving operational safety, the company reported.

Digital Suites for Oil and Gas is intended to meet challenges with data-driven solutions that are ready for new operations or integrated into existing production environments; while helping to ensure that essential safety procedures perform as designed, operators are fully trained, alarms are managed and enforced, and production performance is instantly available to detect and mitigate potential events.

The new software is an integrated offering, but each suite is available separately. The six suites are: Operational Data; Process Safety; Production Surveillance; Equipment Effectiveness; Production Excellence; and Operational Performance.

The created software is in response to demands for safer and more productive operations in oil and natural gas production, said Honeywell. The production improvements are driven by a combination of better productivity, higher uptime and more efficient remote operations, and can produce a return on investment in as little as six months, the company added.

“Upstream oil and gas producers tell us they have access to more real-time data than ever, but access to that data alone is not enough to improve performance – you also need digital intelligence to make sense of all the data being collected,” said Ali Raza, vice president and general manager, Honeywell Process Solutions. “Digital Suites for Oil and Gas turns data into digital intelligence that helps operators make critical decisions faster by capturing, managing, and analyzing the right production information.”

Report: This Is Why LG Software Sucks

August 29th, 2014 by Amrinder No comments »

If you’ve ever despaired with a piece of ropey LG software, you’re not alone. But it’s not just pure chance that’s rendered it so bad—it’s practically corporate policy.

In a feature about how LG screwed up its webOS acquisition, GigaOM unearthed a fascinating nugget of information about the way software development was incentivized at LG:

Despite repeated requests, LG never hired more engineers for the Silicon Valley group. Instead, it put them at the mercy of engineers in Korea who were beholden to their local management, and frequently built features that the webOS team didn’t ask for, or worse, had long fought against.

Sources told me that LG had a policy in place to reward managers with bonuses or even promotions if their features were part of the final product. The result was a constant feature bloat, as everyone tried to add on one more thing.

And that’s how you end up with a TV that’s feature-rich but an absolute pig to use. Ah well.

EU satellites fired into wrong orbit by ‘software bug’

August 29th, 2014 by Amrinder No comments »

Two satellites commissioned by the European Union were accidentally sent into the wrong orbit at launch because of a simple software bug – potentially rendering the multi-million pound devices less capable than intended, or even entirely useless.

Galileo is a £4.4 billion European Union project to create an alternative to the United States’ GPS and Russia’s GLONASS satellite positioning systems in case foreign governments ever withdraw access during political disagreements.

It will offer ten times higher precision than the civilian GPS signal available to Europeans, giving positions accurate to just one metre.

When it is completed in 2019 there will be 30 satellites, three of which will be spares. They will orbit the Earth at a distance of around 23,333km – far beyond the ISS which is around 420km from Earth.

The first satellites were launched in 2011 and, on August 22, satellites number five and six were fired into space from French Guiana. But it soon became clear that they had failed to achieve the correct orbit – the Soyuz third stage “space tug” had put them in an elliptical path around our planet rather than a circular one.

Now Russian newspaper Izvestia reports that a software error in the upper stage, which was developed by a Russian government-owned corporation, was the likely cause.

An anonymous source from Russian space Agency Roscosmos told the paper: “The nonstandard operation of the integrated management system was likely caused by an error in the embedded software. As a result, the upper stage received an incorrect flight assignment, and, operating in full accordance with the embedded software, it has delivered the units to the wrong destination.”

Despite the glitch the satellites themselves are “operating smoothly”, according to the European Space Agency, with solar panels deployed and working. They are now under control of the ESA’s Operations Centre in Darmstadt, Germany.

But investigations have now begun to see what use can be salvaged from them now that they are in the wrong orbit. As it stands it is unclear whether they will be fully or even partially operational for their intended purpose.

The satellites, Doresa and Milena, were fired into space on a Russian-made Soyuz rocket launched from French Guiana on Friday, after a 24-hour delay caused by bad weather.

Teams are working how they can use the expensive satellites “despite their non-nominal injection orbits and within the limited propulsion capabilities”. It is feared that the satellites may not have enough power or fuel to put themselves into the correct orbit.

The first four satellites are currently being used in an In-Orbit Validation (IOV) project, which tightly groups them together above a small section of the Earth to test the “overall concept” of the Galileo system.
