    Simantics Mobile is a toolset for nomadic use of industrial facilities’ information. It supports the interoperability between mobile services and user interactions to facilitate an augmented reality data access for mobile field service operations taking place throughout a process plant lifecycle. The provision beyond the classic mobility and ubiquity (i.e. anytime and anywhere service) is extended. Realising a relationship matrix of contexts, each of which has a unique perspective on knowledge, Simantics Mobile retrieves the right information at the right time and in the right place. Its underlying technological infrastructure encompasses the collaborative functionalities of augmented reality (AR), semantics plant model, and location-based service (LBS). This chapter documents the works in the Simantics Mobile. It also discusses its strategies beyond the implementations. At the end of the chapter, the use case, carried out at Stora Enso Kvarnsveden – a paper mill in Sweden, is demonstrated.
