Podcast host Jim Cahill is joined by Emerson’s Michael Tworzydlo to discuss the role of operational analytics to ensure operational health and optimize plant-wide performance by detecting abnormal behavior of processes and assets, identify root causes of problems, and predict future performance.
Neo Chow Yang shares how Emerson’s Real-Time Modeling System allows users to visualize the facility constraints, accommodate variability, maximize production, and understand the implications of any change in the manufacturing process.
As consumers of medicinal products of various kinds (vaccines, immunotherapies, tablets, capsules, cell therapies, etc.), we know that although product quality is important, reliable supply is also critical. A reliable supplier of therapeutic goods requires the...
At the 4C Health, Safety & Environmental conference in Austin, Emerson’s Ed Schodowski and Doug White presented on ways to address safety issues that relate to process , loss of containment and occupational trends, regulations and other factors that affect plants.
Smarter Rod Pump Management through Advanced Analytics, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence
Emerson’s Zedi Autonomous Rod Pump Management is an Artificial Intelligence (AI) application (analytics engine) that identifies anomalies on rod pump applications.
When the plant is not running the way it should, with excessive variability, alarm conditions or sub-optimized performance, plant engineers often connect with the Emerson Production Performance consultants. I had the opportunity to sit down and record a podcast with Emerson’s James Beall who is a member of the team.
Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) are rapidly changing the way organizations leverage analytics. These systems enable complex analysis that human beings simply cannot perform manually, making it possible to solve difficult problems and identify...
Digital transformation is prompting many organizations to reexamine the way they handle data across the enterprise. A common challenge many organizations face is siloed data. Over the years, as new equipment, processes, and even facilities were added, plants adopted a...
Emerson’s James Beall presented Novel Techniques to Improve Polymer Reactor Tuning at AIChE virtual conference based on a project he worked on. Reactor control is complex with many interactions between control loops. The way to tackle this challenge is to start by identifying the process dynamics and create a realistic process simulation to identify improvements in the control strategy to address the complexities.
Greg McMillan’s presentation, Process Effects on Control explores how various process types affect objectives, tuning, and performance. Greg opened noting that control loops have many different objectives.
Advanced alarming is defined as a collection of techniques that can help manage alarm rates in specific situations. The intent of this initiative is to provide a user guide that will provide guidance on advanced alarming techniques and how to implement them across different processes within our industries.
Digital transformation is about more than connecting to devices in the field. Today, we look to technology to redefine the way we work. Digital transformation and a connected workforce help us improve management and control of operations. The intersection of...
