Systems integration benefits
Consulting-Specifying Engineer    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The past decade has seen dramatic advances in automation systems and smart devices. With today's IP-connected systems employing a variety of standard protocols and Web services, it is now relatively simple to access and accumulate data produced by the wide range of devices in buildings. As a consequence, the amount of available data per building has grown, and with it in many cases the number of buildings that have to be managed. We find ourselves paradoxically drowning in oceans of data with little or no information to work with. More

Production energy optimization profile
Plant Engineer    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
What are the most important factors that impact energy costs in a production facility? Some of these conditions are permanent, while others change from day to day based, for example, on the production schedule or how hot or cold it is outside. Are costs high due to record productivity or excessive due to such things as downtime or steam leaks? More

Automation engineering services: In-house or hired out?
Plant Engineer    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
We don't need to tell you that your control systems are one of the most important parts of your plant. What can often come into question for plant managers is how best to implement and maintain those systems. Does it make more sense to have an in-house team of automation engineers, or work with an outside company for automation services? Or maybe you need a combination of both? The right answer to those questions can significantly impact your plant's bottom line. More

Upgrading PLCs
Control Engineering    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
In mass production manufacturing you either stay current with technology or fall behind the times. By keeping equipment/technology current, manufacturing production increases (making more parts in the same amount of time) and downtime decreases (machines run more during a predetermined time), and this adds value to the manufacturer's bottom line.

The flip side of efficiency
Sustainable Plant    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Sustainability initiatives in industrial facilities tend to look first for ways to reduce consumption. Do an audit, make an assessment, find out where you can make relatively low-cost changes with rapid returns. Document those results to start building credibility and a savings bank account that impresses your bottom line-focused stakeholders and bean-counters. Use that savings bank account to finance bigger projects with longer paybacks. Rinse and repeat. More

TLC: The recipe for success?
FacilitiesNet    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Traditionally, the maintenance and engineering management profession has been associated with replacing like with like and fixing something only when it breaks. Facility executives, building occupants and even the general public rarely perceive the profession as a source of innovation. The design phase generally gets credit for much of a facility's technological innovation. More
