CONTROL SYSTEM DESIGN
SUSTAINABLE, LNTEGRATED CONTROL SOLUTIONS THE WIACS APPROACH TO DESING
When it comes to your control system design requirements, it’s important to look at the big picture, focusing on specific automation challenges and developing solutions to optimize your overall control processes. We partner with you and take a holistic design approach to understanding the nature of your control processes and how your present control system is designed. We review your long- and short-term automation system objectives and criteria.
As an example, if you have an underperforming electrical system design, it can have a negative impact on your automation system reliability. We can help you identify ways an updated or new control system design can successfully deliver increased reliability to your process, as well as improve system efficiency and productivity moving forward. Our approach also confirms existing control system diagrams (including P&IDs, loop sheets, etc.) to verify that they are accurate representations of the actual processes and systems. This detailed information is then used as the basis to design a new system.
Overall, WIACS provides full scope electrical, instrumentation and automation design of integrated control systems, including distributed control systems (DCS) and programmable logic controller (PLC)-based systems. As a platform-independent automation solutions provider, we offer expertise in various third-party hardware to find a fit-for-purpose solution for your process and business needs. We also serve as an automation contractor utilizing WIACS best design practices for project-based execution from instrument specifications to all the normal electrical deliverables (e.g., single lines, power panel board schedules, conduit schedules, contractor specs, etc). In addition, we work with many of software applications and programs to manage and archive drawings. We also leverage our Project Complete methodology to ensure we meet your objectives on time and on budget.
WIACS can help:
– We will design a control system hardware solution around your standards, preferred equipment suppliers and document formats.
– Control system design – all DCS and PLC platforms
– System architecture and network communications
PLC and DCS migrations
– Control panel fabrication design
CONTROL SYSTEM UPGRADE
Automation control system migrations typically only happen once in a career, so it’s no surprise if you feel overwhelmed by the need to upgrade
You may feel locked into using your current vendor and unsure of how to get unbiased advice on other options. Look to WIACS , a platform-independent automation solutions provider, for help finding the best, low-risk solution for your operations.
One that incorporates upfront planning, technology selection, systems integration and ongoing support. We’ll help set your facility on the right course for the next several decades.
We believe that control system migration is your chance to innovate and that manufacturers who just replicate their existing system miss out on major opportunities for improvement. That’s why it’s important to work with someone like WIACS because we won’t push you toward a particular hardware or software but will provide the objective perspective you need for determining the right tools for your facility.
Our process combines a comprehensive study of the challenge, a phased approach to execution and ongoing support — all to ensure your upgrade doesn’t just bring you up to speed but propels you ahead of your competition for years to come.
WIACS can help:
– Develop plans and cost estimates to help obtain funding
– Define your process and system boundaries
– Investigate and collect data Optimize I/O points
– Analyze the data and plan the solution
– Work with you right on the plant floor throughout the project
Keep you operating efficiently during and after the migration
– Provide long-term 24/7/365 Egypt.-based support
– Provide preventive maintenance and training services
– Lock in the gains achieved through your migration
HMI, SCADA & DCS DESING
IMPROVE SAFETY AND OPERATOR EFFECTIVENESS
When it’s time to migrate your human-machine interface system, depend on WIACS to handle the software design and implementation. We understand the need to apply newer guidelines for safety and efficiency while maintaining an interface that’s comfortable and effective for your team. Our software design teams work with you to meet your goals, and our experience allow us to offer competitive pricing.
Our experts partner with your experienced operators to identify opportunities for optimization by reviewing piping and instrumentation diagrams (P&IDs) and laying out a new graphics structure and plan. This not only minimizes the expense of new graphics creation, it also encourages early buy-in from your operators. And by eliminating unnecessary graphics and simplifying others, you give your team an easier way to improve operational safety and productivity.
WIACS can help:
– Decide which HMI platform and version to use
– Ensure you get operator acceptance and buy-in up front to ease transition
– Assist with development of standards and guidelines
– Redevelop graphics utilizing the latest layering concepts, optimized for multi-screen environments
