Event Frames – A Novel Approach At Anglo American Platinum to Enable Life Cycle Management
Anglo American Platinum (Amplats) is the world’s leading Producer of refined Platinum. The Amplats Converting process had a unique challenge of managing ingots and associated equipment during a slow cooling process.
A web-application was created for manual data entry, business and process logic. This web application leveraged native: Event Frame, Element, Event Frame Templates and Asset Framework search capabilities, to simplify the implementation.
The web-application could focus on usability and business logic, leaving the rest of the complex interactions to the Asset Framework.
The successful implementation resulted in integrated data (no new data stores) and up-to-date process information with a simple web-application.
