Editor in Chief Walt Boyes moderated this discussion, while Peter Reynolds used data from ARC research (and his own experience) to explain the current state of DCS migration across industries. The webcast covered the five most common issues/errors encountered in migrations as well as needs common to project engineers, project managers, operations managers, process control superintendents and others involved in DCS Migration. You can also hear Paul Galeski address these issues using real world examples of how innovation leads to increased agility, profitability and productivity.
In this 15-minute webinar, learn how to make the most of temperature measurements and how to avoid and troubleshoot the pitfalls of these vital measurements. Moderated by Jim Shields, Fluke's temperature solution professional with over 20 yeas of process control experience.
In this podcast, Dave Woll of ARC Advisory Group speaks with Jim Montague, Control's executive editor, about how the market for process automation and control engineers and related professionals is staying red hot, despite the overall economic doldrums in the U.S. and worldwide.
Refinery Optimization Webinar. Tuesday, November 6, 2012. Heavy feedstocks often present difficult operational challenges for refiners. To process heavy crudes safely and profitably, can require development of new equipment or major changes in operating conditions. However, innovative new methods that improve the accuracy of feedstock process models, enable refiners to adapt their process more easily and with reduced costs. Learn more about this innovative new technology.
In these 5-minute videos, learn why the award-winning Fluke 719 pressure calibrator and 789 ProcessMeter should be the only process analytical meters you choose in your factory. See the Fluke 719 and 789 in action.
Barry Young, principal analyst ar ARC Advisory Group, talks with Jim Montague, Control's executive editor, about some of the significant trends swirling around the 20th annual Readers' Choice Awards, and how those trends may affect respondents and readers as they choose their favorite technologies, suppliers and services in the process industries. Listen to this podcast.
Tom Moser, president of Emerson Process Management's Rosemount Measurement unit, believes that instrumentation is a big part of the answer to the process industries' challenges to improve productivity, safety, efficiency and asset utilization. Control's Keith Larson talked with Moser at the 2012 Emerson Global Users Exchange in Anaheim, Calif., about the ongoing evolution of instrumentation capabilities as well as the application revolution enabled by wireless technology.
In this podcast, John Blanchard of ARC Advisory Group, speaks with Jim Montague, Control's executive editor, about how "green" practices are multiplying in increasingly varied process applications and how listeners can adopt sustainable methods too.
In this podcast, Dick Slansky, Senior Analyst at ARC Advisory Group, discusses process simulation with Jim Montague, Control's executive editor, and whether simulations for design, configuration, training, optimization and other tasks are coming together in a new way.
In this podcast, Barry Young, principal analyst at ARC Advisory Group, talks with Jim Montague, Control's executive editor, about process security, and how to draw the line on how much security is enough for which control systems and applications.
In this podcast, Harry Forbes of ARC Advisory Group speaks with Nancy Bartels, Control's managing editor, about the state of wireless usage in process automation now, why some are still reluctant to use wireless, and the knotty question of the effect of "standards wars" on the adoption of wireless.
In this podcast, Dave Woll at ARC Advisory Group talks with Jim Montague, Control's executive editor, about the mobile automation professional, how increasingly simple and secure remote access is changing many process applications and which of these tools and methods might be most useful to listeners.
In this podcast, Peter Reynolds of ARC Advisory Group talks with Jim Montague, Control's executive editor, about the Control Room of the Future, and whether smart phones, tablets PCs, simulations and other hi-tech tools can help turn control rooms into futuristic collaboration centers, or if any other practices can help achieve that bright future.
In this podcast, Peter Reynolds of ARC Advisory Group, talks with Jim Montague, Control's executive editor, about the increasingly close ties between process safety and cybersecurity, and how thinking about security as a safety and availability issue is helping engineers justify and implement it in their own organizations.
In his keynote speech, Lipták talks about the latest developments in optimization and safety, referencing nuclear accidents around the world and gives examples of optimization results in terms of production rate, safety, and efficiency improvements, showing that just process control alone can in some cases reduce energy costs.
Aging workforce? Talent gap? Employee recruitment, retention, proficiency Management,...Every position in plant operations is more critical to profitability today than ever before and in the search for improved profitability, companies know that the game is won or lost each day on the front lines with highly skilled, experienced, operations teams. Inexperienced and undertrained operators are a liability, risking safety and profitability. The science of human performance management, education and industrial technology have converged to create a new solution that dramatically improves human performance and reduces "time to experience."
