An expanded scenario for the Automation Systems: the convergence of IT/OT technologies; more intelligence on field devices; distributed instrumentation, IIoT and wireless communication networks; remote & integrated operations, digital twins, closer integration with business systems; Advanced analytics.
The new (and growing) native capabilities of Control Systems for "Advanced Control" applications.
The convergence between process control systems and electrical controls, The convergence between control and asset health systems.
The expansion of the automation “ecosystem” due to the integration of suppliers, customers and specialized technical support.
The increased requirements of safety, quality, performance and external regulations.
Audits, gap analysis, pre-feasibility engineering and project charter development.
Full responsibility for the project success. We manage the procurement, configuration and commissioning, start up, transfer to operation and user support.
Basic and detail engineering, system integration.
Teaming with the client we manage the contractors, supervise FAT, SAT tests. We supervise the systems start-up and transfer to operation.
Modernizations, systems "upgrades"
Teaming with the major contractor we start working from the initial phases of conceptual design and system architecture up to the transfer to operations.
An integral approach, from the installation conditions of the instruments to the control strategies.
Most of the current DCS´s have advanced control capabilities. In most of the installations this capacity is not fully used. Can the control strategy be improved?, Is it necessary to integrate external models or advanced algorithms?.
We can conduct an audit and identify the gap´s and improvement opportunities.
Using our analytical tools we can evaluate the performance of the control loops and process variability. This can be done as an ad-hoc study using historical data or as a service, with an online monitoring of the control systems.
