Open System Framework


Open system solutions a framework for success september 2007

Open System Life Cycle Costs

  • Do they cost more or less than closed systems?

  • How much does it cost to acquire? (Initial Capital Investment)

  • What’s it cost to keep? (Ongoing Maintenance)

  • How does it help or hinder me in day to day activities? (Impact upon Operations)

  • If I need to change, modify or enhance it, what does it cost and how quickly can it be done? (Reconfiguration/Enhancement Costs)

  • Is it worth anything when I’m done with it? (Residual Value)

Key Elements ofOpenness

  • Device connectivity

    • How many products of importance to my application can a given technology or system communicate with? 

  • User Interface Connectivity

    • Can a standard browser be used for Access?

    • Can alarms, messages etc. be emailed, transferred to standard devices such as browsers, phones, servers, PDAs?

    • Can I give anyone access without additional licenses fees?

  • Access to products for initial purchase and expansions

    • Where can I buy these products?

    • Where can I get them installed or serviced?

    • How many suppliers?

    • Is it a competitive situation?

Key Elements ofOpenness

  • Third party development of complimentary enterprise applications

    • Can independent developers create new products and applications that work coherently with the system?

  • Public interfaces (“APIs”) to allow 3rd party access to data

    • Are there published interfaces that makes it easy to access system data?

  • Support for accepted standard protocols

    • Does the system in question support the “lion’s share” of relevant standard communication protocols?

  • Compatibility with standard databases

    • Can data from the system be easily shared with common database formats used throughout my enterprise?

The Customer Test

  • The end use customer is where the buck stops with open systems.

  • They choose the systems, they pay for them, they live with them.

  • Open systems gives the end user the ultimate freedom of choice.

    • Manufacturer of choice

    • Protocol of choice - BACnet, LonTalk, Modbus, SNMP, OPC, and many proprietary devices or systems.

    • Local contractor of choice

    • Choice to select add-on applications and devices from third party suppliers

    • Choice to extend the capabilities of the system through standard software interfaces

Open System Framework Model


The technology niagara framework

The Technology - Niagara Framework

  • Unifies heterogeneous devices, protocols, data via a robust component model foundation

  • Internet standards built in

  • Scalable, embeddable solution – same software can be used in small low cost devices and at enterprise app level

  • Real time – connects real time data from field devices to enterprise applications, provides local control execution

  • Integrated tools support programming for non-programmers: domain experts build end-use applications with a graphical tool – no coding

  • Connects disparate devices for coordinated peer-to-peer control in the field independent of any central server

  • Open development platform (extensive open APIs) allows partners to independently develop differentiated products and apps
