Improve Your Automation Planning

June 18, 2008
The Automation and Control Life Planning Process is designed to provide users with a structure and framework for making industrial system planning decisions.

The system examines four primary decision criteria industrial users cite when formulating plans for the future of their automated system or process: process efficiency and resource utilization; maintenance costs; process modifications and expansions; and safety and security. The step-by-step process includes an assessment of current operations, equipment and key business needs. This information is used to generate a customized report detailing a comprehensive strategy to maximize the effectiveness and return on investment of a user’s equipment. These results, documented in a customized report, give industrial users options for asset management, spare parts, upgrades, risk mitigation, productivity improvements and increased reliability.
