In April 1997, the first commercial Foundation fieldbus application was installed in a Canadian plant running a series of ethylene furnaces. Emerson technology experts including a process automation hall of fame member were on the scene in this new chapter in process automation.

Since that time, process manufacturers around the globe and across many industries have been realizing benefits in installation and ongoing operations from this digital communications technology.

The ARC Advisory Group is performing a survey on Operational, Maintenance, and Engineering Benefits Related to Foundation Fieldbus. They are particularly interested in responses from end users that have implemented Foundation Fieldbus in their plants.

If you’d like to participate, here’s the link to the ARC survey. I hear that the survey is open through the first week of August, so hopefully you can squeeze in a few minutes to answer the 15 questions. As a participant you’ll receive a free copy of the results.

I’m curious what the ARC findings will be, and will be sure to point you to any highlights the ARC folks freely share.
