” Improved regulatory control performance contributes to less production waste and energy consumption, fewer quality defects, more throughput, and higher yield. Uncovering – let alone realizing – those benefits is challenging for most process manufacturers given the complexity of their automation environment and the growing responsibilities faced by engineering and maintenance teams. The reports, alerts and metrics included with most controller performance monitoring packages enable those teams to stay one step ahead of issues and downtime.”
The “if it’s not broken, don’t fix it” mentality does not bode well for manufacturers who are still relying on their legacy systems instead of adopting a dynamic tool that provides advanced business insights. Many plant controllers are focused on process control analysis and optimization, and they will only get the visibility they need by leveraging a tool that shows how efficient their processes really are and where they can be improved.
