Managing and reporting measurement data traditionally requires a lot of manual work. Valuable working hours can be wasted poring over Excel spreadsheets and manually calculating results to ensure that parameters remain within required values. A high-quality monitoring system can simplify the work of experts who deal with measurement data.
The FinMeas environmental and dam monitoring platform has been designed for the mining sector, aiding in the automated safety monitoring of the environment and dams. Interfaces between various sources of information, advanced calculation capabilities, and highly automated reporting make it possible to manage and report measurement data more efficiently.
Interfaces between various sources of information allow all essential data to be brought onto one platform. This means that automated measurements, manual measurements, laboratory analyses, field survey documents and camera images can all be consolidated into the same system. The benefit of integration is that it eliminates the scattered nature of data, enabling the joint refinement of data from different sources.
Nearly real-time data can be monitored on any device. Experts can also set the necessary threshold values for measurement data and receive automatic notifications via e-mail or text message if these values are exceeded or not met.
The system’s advanced calculation capabilities combine measurement data and produce the necessary values directly without manual calculations. The calculations also take into account the values specified by the customer, and as such, the charts show the real-time situation with respect to the set requirements. The system's map view helps to visualise the locations of measurement devices.
Highly automated reporting reduces manual work and eliminates the need to work with Excel spreadsheets. The reporting feature enables automatic reporting of all measured quantities at desired intervals, such as weekly, monthly or yearly. Reports are sent as either docx or PDF files to the e-mail addresses of designated recipients. Docx files allow for the addition of custom text between graphs. The report’s visual presentation makes data interpretation easy, and the report automatically highlights any deviations that require attention.
The simplicity and automation of reporting save time, simplify the manual work of experts, and leave them more time for making conclusions instead of compiling reports.
