Developing High-Level Operator Skills Prior to Startup
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...
Develop, Test and Train for Lower Risk Projects
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...
Hardware in the Loop Simulation for Process Control
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...
Operator Training System for Offshore Oil and Gas Redevelopment Project
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...
Building Competency through Operator Training Systems
Automation technologies can help in making plants more efficient, but only if the operations and maintenance personnel understand how to make effective use of these technologies. For control systems, Operator Training simulators (OTS) are one way to develop knowledge...
Helping to Ease the Experience Gap
Emerson's Pete Sharpe, an advanced automation consultant, was recently interviewed for a magazine article on the subject of process manufacturers' aging workforce. Manufacturers primarily in North America and Western Europe are feeling this loss of experience due to...
