Now that you decided to modernize your control system, take advantage of new technology features and begin optimizing your process!  Many of the latest technology control features can replace older cumbersome techniques that were harder to implement & maintain.

Many older automation systems implemented complex custom strategies to handle automation challenges like deadtime compensation, changing process dynamics, valve rangability & customed PID response. Using “replace in kind approach” duplicates existing logic without consideration of new technology, resulting in less efficient control strategies that prevent potential process improvements.

The focus will be on field proven, practical application of some of the latest automation capabilities that deal with common challenges, highlighting best practices & lessons learned.  Using the new functionality available when modernizing your automation system  allows a jump start to process optimization. The results are improved process performance, with strategies that are easier to implement and maintain over the life of your investment.
