Let us help you better understand your process automation and identify possible gaps to maintain a competitive edge.
As your experienced and knowledgeable consultative support partner, we recognize that getting the highest reliability and performance out of your automation investments requires identifying your plant’s unrealized potential. The journey to being a sustainable best-cost producer means minimizing variability associated with control strategies, controller algorithms, tuning, field devices, and process design to gain manufacturing efficiency and product quality benefits. Each time there’s variability from the expected production, your result is sub-optimal performance, throughput, and quality product.
Performance degradation happens over time and is typically an accumulation of multiple process issues that have not been addressed holistically. Using Emerson’s EnTech Variability Index (EVI) a clear benchmark for your processes can be established using a combination of data sets from a plant walk-down, asset specifications and serial card information, real-time process data analyzed, and industry standards. Our blend of technology, expertise, and enhanced automation consulting studies identify and quantify plant performance improvements that enhance operating stability to maximize your plant’s availability and profitability. We provide specific data-powered recommendations to optimize controller and instrumentation performance, and define actions for further improvements to instrumentation, process design, and control strategies which deliver a significant economic payback.
