ABB Ability Solution Suite

Of course this is the one of the best solution available in the market at present. When you have Multiple system in a plant then you need a powerful tool for Computation which Ability does it smoothly.

My main suggestion - as with any software implementation - is that the business itself MUST have business processes CLEARLY defined to use this software effectively. It needs to be installed trying to hit the main functionality of the process and not focus on exceptions to the rule. Remember that the exceptions will always happen and just make sure you have a manual way around it.

  • Consistent consultants has been an issue - trying to get someone that can help alleviate a problem when creating a new workflow was most challenging.
  • The "smart client" and "web client" versions have items that cannot be done in both (not due to security setup) and causes users to work in both clients to perform their work.

One of the best solutions in the market with a user-friendly system. This is very useful when the ABB system (Like we had 800xA) is there, new or existing; all the ABB systems can be integrated using this rather than going to a 3rd party vendor, which may have interface problems.

Good support in terms of quality and promptness. When we had problems with some of the commands not getting executed, their online support also provided a good solution to solve the problem. Even mission-critical task we were able to solve during this Pandemic time. The suggestion is to go for the online support 1st in the future, followed by a visit.

Better suited for the ABB System as Microsoft is a third party for ABB Control System.

I have used Fund EZ and QuickBooks. Unit4 is for larger organizations and was needed for our scaling.

  • Our business processes were in flux when the initial build of our system was taking place - this made lives very difficult. Make sure processes are set!
  • Time - beyond what could have been imagined - this is a huge project, that needs proper resources assigned to it within a company when planning to install.
