Training Establishes the Benefits of Automation
Engineers looking for improvement opportunities now have some new help from ExperTune. The company is offering a new training course to help engineers show the bottom-line results of their efforts. The training shows engineers how to find improvement opportunities, how to capture them, and how to clearly document the financial results. Plant management, in turn, can make better business decisions regarding automation when armed with this information.
Kevin Gibbs, CEO of ExperTune, says “Engineers often fail to meet management’s expectation to document financial results. This training helps plant-level engineers to succeed in delivering and documenting results in terms that their managers will understand.”
The training course, titled “Benefits of Automation,” covers both the technical aspects and the real-world realities of the modern process plant environment. Students will learn to:
o Measure performance in economic terms
o Establish the link between control systems performance and business performance
o Use specific techniques to:
o Improve Quality
o Reduce Energy Usage
o Increase Production Rate
o Reduce Maintenance Costs
o Document and Communicate Results to Management.
John Gerry, President and Founder of ExperTune says, “Over the past 20 years, our clients have saved hundreds of millions of dollars using these techniques. Plant management is the ultimate customer of these results, and this training will help to ensure that management gets a clear and accurate picture of the value received from plant controls engineers.”
Using real-world examples and hands-on exercises, students will practice using these skills to demonstrate value. The course is recommended for process plant controls engineers and managers who need to find and demonstrate business improvements. The 2-day “Benefits of Automation” training will be offered at several locations this year.
