Dynamic process simulations can be used across the lifecycle of a capital project from early verification studies of process designs to training the operators to prepare to operate the running facility. For offshore oil & gas production facilities these simulations are even more important given the remoteness, space limitations and transportation requirements for the project […]

For those that follow the various forms of auto racing, you know that the skills of the drivers typically separate overall race results, even when the racecars are nearly identical in performance. And so it is with experienced, high-level operators in process manufacturing and production facilities. Emerson’s Ronnie Bains shared a recent eptq article, Operator […]

One way to improve the probability for a successful process automation project is to include dynamic simulation during the design phases to help with configuring the control system, testing before commissioning the system and training the operators before the process goes live. In an earlier post, Building Competency through Operator Training Systems, we highlighted the […]

Emerson’s Felipe Fakir shared a whitepaper with me, Hardware in the Loop Simulation for Industrial Process Control, which he and colleagues attending São Paulo State University in Brazil had written. Their abstract [I’ve added hyperlinks]: Real-time simulation for control loop design and operators training systems (OTS) are increasingly being used in the process industry due […]

One of the reoccurring themes I heard at the recent Emerson Exchange conference for process manufacturers modernizing their control systems was the early engagement of operators in training systems. I met with Emerson’s Ronnie Bains a few months back who is involved in many operator training system (OTS) projects, as part of the Strategic Services […]
