An ABB analysis of control systems worldwide revealed that up to 75% of a typical plant’s automation investment is not providing benefits. In other words, the systems are not operating as designed or intended.
- Are the automatic controls at your metals plant switched on?
- Are your control systems actually causing problems instead of solving them?
- Does your process automation system operate at maximum potential?
Ensuring that PID control loops are regularly tuned and optimized enables you to use less raw material, reduce energy consumption, increase production, enhance product quality and troubleshoot more rapidly and effectively.
Proactively servicing control loops is just as important as serving your equipment, though it's not quite as simple as checking physical attributes on a piece of hardware such as a motor. Fortunately, digital technologies gives us new tools which, when combined with proven methodologies and expert guidance, provides for a powerful performance improvement service.
