Emerson’s Senior Advanced Process Control Consultant Mark Brewer, a Chartered Chemical Engineer with experience in many industries,will be speaking at ACHEMA on June 14 at 11.30am about predicting and proving improved control benefits in production.Mark has worked in the field of Process Control and Automation for 30 years and has a long track record of helping Emerson’s clients apply advanced control technologies to their manufacturing assets to give significant improvements to their operating performance.

Today, industry leaders realize that a proactive, management led reliability strategy is the secret to improved shareholder value. It’s the secret weapon against declining operational performance, improved production availability and lower operating costs. It also keeps you off the evening news.

Many organisations struggle with justifying control improvement projects, and strive to justify the next project to prove the benefits were actually gained. Metrics such as identifying pay-back time and predicted benefits can in fact be established using simple processes. It is also possible to reduce process variability and improve process availability with less operator intervention.Furthermore, the same method can be applied to the process operation after the project is complete to prove that the benefits were actually gained.

Process operating data however exists in past, but how can we convert the existing raw data into an accurate prediction of how improved control will affect the process, especially in terms of process economics?

Emerson offers several Service Programs that can help you maintain, sustain, and enhance your control performance. For each of these programs, we use a team of expert consultants that have experience in many process industries. Emerson’s Control Performance Improvement Projects can be used to solve a particular problem or to implement remedial actions previously identified during a Discovery Study.

Accurate prediction and verification of project benefit enables the next project to be justified more easily leading to a chain of process improvement projects using control system functionality.
