Manufacturing Control and Reliable Operations
AIChE Spring Meeting and Global Congress on Process Safety
Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center
Tuesday, March 28, 2017 - 8:00am to 9:30am
The early days of process automation had operators controlling individual loops and devices from field control boxes. Operators today still control the same way, but now they sit in a chair in front of a computer workstation. In many ways, the only thing that has changed is the location and the number of loops one person can manage. Controllers have increased in power and capabilities but few companies have changed their automation to take advantage of these improvements. This session addresses process control work in terms of successes or failures; conversions and/or automation and developments or acquisitions among other topics in this broad field.
