A PSIM collects data from all sorts of systems used by the organization. Like safety and security systems, but also ERP and HRM systems, planning software, multiple databases ad even social media. PSIM software collects, filters and interprets the data from all of these systems and databases. Operations and other stakeholders are provided with (only relevant) information in a dashboard, also known as a Common Operational Picture.
It’s no longer required to consult the underlying systems. In the event of an incident or crisis, the dashboard can be shared with other emergency responders, like the regional police, fire departments and/or medical assistance. Everyone in the chain has the same timely and relevant information.
