Real-time Data Collection
The eFCAS SCADA and Measurement solution architecture is built specifically so your system can be monitored from anywhere on the internet with the proper authentication.

Flow Computer Audit Trail Data Collection
Full EFM Audit trail data collection via eFCAS Communication Drivers is scheduled through an easy process of creating tasks, using the eFCAS Client configuration
screens. The eFCAS Communication Drivers, most written to use the native protocol of the device manufacturer, communicate with hundreds of devices to collect both real-time and audit trail information automatically and store the data in the eFCAS Secure Database. All data collection and storage is done to API 21 and Directive 17 Standards. For more information on data collection and the support manufacturers’ protocol drivers click here.

eFCAS presents all meters and meter stations in a consolidated view for Rapid identification of missing data, suspect data, data in error and uncollected data. This screen quickly lets the user go directly to the issue by bringing up the Flow data screen where the issue exists. Furthermore, if the data is flagged as suspect or error, you hover over the cell and a pop-up will let you know why it was suspect or in error. eFCAS securely stores original data—which cannot be edited—along with the edited data. All data editing is tracked in an audit trail, capturing user’s name, time of, and reasons for changes.

eFCAS Measurement
Within eFCAS, using the eFCAS Mimics, an Overview Map can be created for the Measurement territory in question. This Overview screen can be as simple or as advanced as required.

The Overview Map can offer an easy way to see quickly that everything is communicating properly. It can also provide basic production information and popup different windows for each site that provides detailed data in a glance.

eFCAS Mimics can be templated and put into composite templates. This allows the ability to use templates within templates and for them to exist within many different mimics or templates.

The ability to create templates and have templates within templates allows for the creation of composites that when changed, automatically change within ALL other templates immediately upon reopening. Furthermore, these templates can access both real-time data as well as measurement data within the same mimic. Reports can also be linked within the mimics so all data can be accessible.

Enterprise Reporting—
The eFCAS Editor is not only powerful; it is also easy to use. It forces the user into compliance with government regulations like API 21.1, 21.2 and Directive 17.

The editor gives the user all of the data necessary to decide what action to take all in one interface. The user can modify multiple records at once via column or row. Once Meter Characteristics or Analysis is modified, the entire period can be re-calculated with the click of one button. Once the changes have been made, then the new data and configuration is saved preserving the original data as well.

Data Analytics and Mining

The eFCAS Solution was created with Measurement in mind and that design mindset has produced the built-in screens below. These built-in screens allow for faster deployment and efficiency of use within eFCAS.


Field Data Capture
As soon as the EFM History data is collected, it can be viewed in the built-in screen called Flow Data screen.

This screen can be accessed in many different ways such as from the Tree View, from the Main Tool Bar and from a Mimic. It contains a Daily History Graph, an Hourly History Graph, a table view of the Daily History and a table view of the Hourly History. The user can also access the Edit Utility from this screen.

Business Intelligence
The Meter Characteristics screen has two tabs, one for the Meter Characteristics graph and a table view to see the actual data over the timeframe.

The Meter Characteristics, or configuration, graph screen shows the user, very quickly, if there are any modifications of the configuration over time by seeing the color change over the timeline. The actual data can also be viewed on the Table view tab.

eFCAS Reporting is very powerful and has two reporting methods available built-in to the eFCAS Suite. The first is the traditional advanced ad-hoc reporting typically used for compliance reporting for historical and audit trail data. The second is the eFCAS Object Reporting which is a very powerful solution that uses the Relational Objects within the eFCAS Suite to build reports that do not require the user to create SQL Queries and eases the burden of report creation.

The traditional eFCAS advanced reporting system, which is built-in, uses “out-of-the-box” standard eFCAS Reports, or user-developed ad-hoc reports, which can be scheduled to run automatically, reducing reporting time and cost to the enterprise. eFCAS Reports can even be customized to do Daily Production Reports as well as Allocation Reports.

The eFCAS Object Reporting is an amazing technology that allows users and operators to create reports by dragging and dropping items from an eFCAS Object Type onto an Object Report canvas; no SQL required. For more information, go to the eFCAS Reporting page.
