Amec Foster Wheeler Implements ActiveBatch

Amec deployed ActiveBatch in 2009, expanding access to 15 developers and 10 operators, simplifying the IT environment with powerful new capabilities:

  • The ActiveBatch Extension for Microsoft Dynamics AX enabled Amec to consolidate several internal departments into a single ERP system, streamlining critical processes;
  • ActiveBatch's Integrated Jobs Library provides hundreds of prebuilt jobs, including and Import Job Step that allowed Amec to consolidate eight command-line utilities;
  • ActiveBatch’s event-automation triggers allow Amec to run processes dynamically to better meet needs in real-time, as opposed to using only inflexible, static schedules and manual triggers;
  • Runtime monitoring capabilities notify the IT team whenever a job is running longer than expected, allowing Amec to investigate delays before they turn into failed jobs.
