Control Performance Business Solution
A managed service based on our market leading Metso Expertune PlantTriage system where we continually optimise your process controls so as to deliver and maintain a surge in process performance. As we provide this as a service, your staff are free to concentrate on day to day operational issues and you do not have to put in place specialists to implement the solution. By optimizing controls we stabilize processes enabling a shift in operating point which typically results in improved production yield and quality, lower energy consumption, less raw material usage and longer system lives. On very large plants, we have saved our customers up to $5 million a year by getting controls to work properly. In addition to providing immediate process improvements, our control performance solution provides a firm foundation on which to carry out more advanced process optimization, e.g. Advanced Process Controls.
Optimized control systems can deliver significant improvements in manufacturing efficiency, production output, end-product quality, waste management, energy and raw material costs. Although the goals are clear, they can be difficult to achieve due to too much process data, limited manpower, skills shortages and too many day-to-day tasks to handle.
The control performance solution is a complete control performance optimization package combining the market leading PlantTriage system with Metso control specialists so as to provide a fully managed solution to controls optimization. The control performance solution includes the following:
- Continual plant monitoring so all process data is captured for analysis and diagnosis
- Identification of the controls having the biggest negative commercial impact so corrective action can be prioritized
- A root cause diagnosis for each underperforming control. In many cases the root cause is in related control loops and would be virtually impossible to diagnose using manual analysis
- Corrective action management so that you can be sure all the faults have been fixed properly.
- Parameter tuning to ensure that automatic controls are working optimally
