Many industries often face challenges transitioning to more renewable sources. To meet the demand in diverse situations, industries need to focus on innovative technologies within their business models where they can embrace innovation to increase efficiency.
Process Automation is one such technology that industries can depend on. Modernizing internal processes with automation, along with better access to information about operations and maintenance, will help the industries streamline production and distribution and allow for higher yield.
As the world progresses with greater supply and demand needs, so is there greater need for intelligent automation. In the global energy and utility sector, this is ever prevailing especially when climate change increases the demand for clean, reliable and cheap energy and utility management.
Intelligent automations, therefore, opens the option of upskilling the existing workforce to adapt to such changes. Task priorities can now be rearranged to allow more efficient processes through intelligent automation, while the human workforce can be strategically positioned for other non- repetitive tasks.
Process automation in totality helps in various ways and some of the highlighted advantages that it brings are:
High performance visualization with real time information
Secured and reliable production for the entire workshop and efficient monitoring of the operations’ statuses
Simplify manufacturing and help make it more efficient with products and integrated solutions that help maximize performance and resource conservation
Provide assurance to achieve the desired parameter values and sensory characteristics
Reduce plant downtime with the implementation of redundant system within network and control devices
Minimize energy, utility, and raw material consumption
Effective alarm alert management to minimize risk
Reliable data collection and management
Available setpoints, parameters manipulation for instrument
Easy adaptation and fast commissioning
Reduce carbon footprint & improve sustainability
With process automation, the results from its implementation are many. Here, we highlight the few that matters most:
From point-of-generation to point-of-production, closes the resource loop and provides an approach for the management of resources
Daily production & quality can be traceable
Highest production quality with great amounts of safety
Able to acquire long-term information, which ensures that troubleshooting and service activities can be very efficient when needed
Maximum operation uptime
Improved process management
Reduced maintenance costs
