Manufacturers today need a high degree of certainty and confidence to achieve timely production, and flexibility to make changes in product and material specifications. This enables them to effectively respond to intense global competition and major market shifts.

At the same time, suppliers of integrated production control systems need to focus on the adaptive evolution of their products by addressing manufacturers’ needs to keep up with the fast pace of change in the business landscape and technology while delivering maximum return on assets and the lowest total cost of ownership.

This evolution in the latest generation of control systems represents much more than conventional functional improvements. It brings together concepts such as smart engineering, advanced operation, system agility, and sustainable plant. With these latest developments, plant operators can be assured of an optimum engineering environment that spans the entire plant lifecycle, from plant design and the engineering and installation of systems and devices to the start-up of production, maintenance, and renovation. In addition, it is designed to meet the most stringent industry requirements for safe and reliable plant operations and environmental protection. 

The introduction of these crucial new control system components ushers in an operating environment that keeps everyone fully aware, well informed, and ready to face the next challenge. The result is a dramatic reduction in the time required to configure and install a control system.
