Proscient’s Operations Logbook & Shift Handover


Before starting a shift, your teams better know what’s happened, what’s happening now, and what’s likely to happen during upcoming shifts.

Frontline operations is where everything comes together. It’s where all of the activities needed to operate and maintain the plant merge and where all operational risk and human interaction with the asset occurs. Getting it right is critical, as poor quality handovers have been identified as causal factors in a number of serious incidents.

Proscient’s Operations Logbook & Shift Handover solution goes beyond traditional solutions. It’s the industry’s first integrated application that brings together all operational activities and their associated risks with all other activities and risks occurring on the plant. And with its integrated planning capabilities, Proscient provides a clear look-ahead for the next few shift periods. This provides a shared, common view of the operational reality which allows teams to better plan, manage, and execute work activities scheduled to take place on the plant, at any given time.

As Proscient is a connected, digital platform, at shift end, the handover document can be automatically created from the automatic logbook and ongoing manual observations. This reduces operator workload and ensures better quality data is provided to support the handover. This frees up more time for face-to-face discussions and ensures important details are not missed.



Know what’s happening, where it’s happening, and what’s driving the risk

The Proscient Operational Excellence Platform v4.0 delivers a single, shared view of the operational reality. It arms everyone with the right information, at the right time, so they can make more-informed, effective operational decisions.

As part of the platform, Proscient’s Operations Logbook & Shift Handover is the first “connected” , digital solution of its kind. It can seamlessly connect your operational systems, data and business processes to your operational reality.

  • Part of a tightly integrated digital software platform based on a single code base
  • Enables better, more informed operational decision-making for scheduling, execution and handover of work activities on your plant.


Proscient’s Operations Logbook & Shift Handover software solution enables you to bring all operational activities and their associated risks into a single, central, shared location. See how “all” activities come together. A common view of the operational reality enables better planning, management and execution of all work activities. Improved communication and collaboration is a result of Proscient’s ability to easily share information between shift teams and cross-functional teams, including: Operations, Maintenance, HSE, Engineering, and Planning.

Now work teams can see how their activities can potentially interact with others happening on the plant in terms of risk and SIMOPS. Importantly, it gives teams visibility into something they’ve have never had before: a clear understanding of operation’s priorities and their ability to support other planned and unplanned activities on the plant.

Proscient’s shift handover capabilities enable clear and consistent communications between shift teams, providing a view of the work events on the shift, the status of the plant – with an emphasis on risk, and a real-time view of the next few shift periods. Proscient’s Shift Diary and Handover application also provides a unique 3-day look-ahead at the planned activities which helps dayshift and nightshift teams seamlessly work together to deliver a credible plan. This allows oncoming shift teams to be better informed and more proactive – leading to increased uptime, fewer incidents and better utilisation of resources.
