When you consider the number of systems, applications and workflows that operators use on a daily basis to make decisions and solve problems, the list is pretty large. Now add this scary statistic provided by a study in the fossil power industry: it takes up to eight years to fully equip operators with the training and experience needed to have approximately 30-35% of the context and situational awareness required to do their job well.
The complexity of controlling a modern process manufacturing facility using multiple control systems and databases developed in functional silos is putting reliability, productivity and safety systems at risk, especially as the most experienced operators rapidly approach retirement. Inconsistent decision-making and human error is virtually inevitable. In this webinar, learn how smart technologies such as integrated control systems with embedded decision-support mitigates these risks and optimizes asset availability across all functional silos.
