With Discovery Studies, Emerson consultants analyze data and provide guidance with opportunities to help you improve operational performance. You can reduce process variability and improve process availability with less operator intervention.
Emerson’s Control Performance Discovery Studies are a combination of analysis, consultation, and some critical loop adjustments to optimize the performance of individual control loops and to coordinate the response of all loops in a process unit.
Discovery Studies are offered in three tiers of services available onsite or offsite depending on the service tier: Tier 1 provides a one-day consultation; Tier 2 provides a consultation with more in-depth analysis tailored to the needs of your plant; Tier 3 offers in-depth analysis and some immediate changes to your control system.
Reduce process variability and improve operational performance: Our Control Performance Improvement consultants can quickly identify the cause and solution of loop performance problems such as cycling and slow response. They can provide immediate recommendations and identify long-term remedies.
Improve process availability and lower maintenance costs: Emerson consultants can help you determine the causes of and solutions for process upsets, trips, and operator intervention on key control loops. We can help reduce unplanned events, thus lowering maintenance costs.
Maximize the benefits of advanced control: Control Performance consultants can diagnose limitations of base-level loops and identify the control loops that will provide additional profit from advanced control.
