PAS announces Engineered with Integrity program

Aug. 14, 2006
The new program makes PAS’ Integrity software available on demand to drive down documentation and testing costs for engineering company participants.
HOUSTON, TX – June 27, 2006 – PAS has announced on-demand availability of its Integrity software to Engineering Companies via its “Engineered with Integrity” program. The Integrity software automates control system documentation and detection of common configuration errors for distributed control systems, PLC’s and instrument databases. Use of the Integrity software reduces engineering labor costs by 20-30% on a typical control configuration project, while increasing quality.The Integrity software is a dynamic solution especially suited for handling many of the challenges faced by engineering companies in control system configuration projects across all phases of the project lifecycle, including: 
  • Project Planning & Costing
    -  automatic capture of configuration data from legacy systems to document scope
    -  detection of control system spare capacity to avoid unnecessary migrations
  • Engineering & Testing
    -  on-demand documentation of control system drawings and documentation
    -  progress reporting and change management of control system projects
    -  intelligent integrity checking for detection of common configuration errors
    -  inter-system connectivity validation with end-to-end Loop Sheet diagram generation
  • On-Site commissioning
    -  automatic as-built and project close-out documentation
    -  pre-startup safety review
    -  web-based reporting for remote access and ongoing customer support
    -  by-author change tracking to manage hands-on customer involvement 

“The Integrity software provides significant improvement to the documentation and testing capabilities for control system projects, reducing software configuration and acceptance testing labor costs by 20-25% and shaving weeks from documentation schedules”, according to Harry McKinley, Systems Consultant at ENGlobal. “There is no other tool available today that can integrate information across control systems and their subsystems to yield such savings, while helping improve overall job quality to the customer.”
The Integrity software enables engineers to better manage all of their automation assets by auto-extracting complete configuration data from both hardware and software assets into a central database. A rich web-based environment provides a consistent view of the configuration details for software and systems of a variety of vendors, including all of the following and more:

  • Bently's Rebis instrumentation database 
  • Emerson's Delta V, RS3 control system and AMS instrumentation 
  • GE's Fanuc programmable logic controllers (PLC's) 
  • Honeywell control systems & PLC's 
  • Invensys Fox IA and Triconex PLC's 
  • Intergraph InTools instrumentation database 
  • Rockwell PLC's 
  • Yamatake DEO 
  • Yokogawa Centum CS and CS3000
