Optimize your automation systems and staffing.
Solomon’s Worldwide Automation Performance Analysis (Automation Study) provides visibility into how your automation systems—Distributed Control Systems (DCSs), Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs), Safety Instrumentation Systems (SISs), Plant Historians, on-line instrumentation, etc.—compare to your peers. Gain valuable insight to determine if any gaps exist in your automation systems.
The study provides insight into risk reduction, process control, and technology review strategies, including:
- Cyber security practices
- Security instrumented systems
- Process alarm policies
- Knowledge management plans
- Operator training simulation
- Wireless technology use
Learn if you are expending the right amount of effort and capital to maintain reliability, improve your processes for better competitive performance, and keep you in line with industry peers.
