Reduce risk for project success and performance
16 June 2015
In a landscape of increasing technical complexity and fewer experienced resources, process industries are challenged to successfully execute projects. The impacts of missed deadlines, budget overruns, and unexpected scheduling hits can quickly spiral a project plan out of control. Emerson’s global project services team helps deliver project certainty, drawing on industry best practices and backed by over a century of experience.
By engaging Emerson early, companies can invest properly at the beginning of a project to minimise project risk, lower costs, and drive faster implementations. Emerson’s proven planning and front end engineering design (FEED) process helps project teams define the right scope of work and achieve predictable project results. Dedicated Emerson experts with extensive, global experience ensure accurate estimation upfront, reduce re-work, and mitigate the risk of late design changes.
By simplifying and standardising both software and hardware configurations, Emerson helps eliminate unnecessary work and protect project schedules. With Emerson’s DeltaV Virtual Studio—a virtualised automation platform — users can easily create and upgrade control systems during operation using pre-built virtual machine templates that ensure consistent and error-free system configuration.
With the flexibility to accommodate late design changes, Emerson technology reduces on-site work without compromising quality. Electronic Marshalling with CHARacterization Module (CHARMs) technology allows seamless addition of I/O anywhere in the plant. CHARMs permit field wiring of any signal type to be terminated anywhere, decoupling design from I/O infrastructure.
AMS Suite’s bulk commissioning for HART and FOUNDATION fieldbus devices lets users execute multiple configurations in a fraction of the time. Configuration changes and updates can also be pushed to multiple devices simultaneously, reducing the impact of mid-project modifications.
Working with Emerson experts means not having to reinvent the wheel with every project; users get access to the wealth of knowledge from a company that has provided process automation solutions for over 100 years. With processes and tools based on industry best practices, using Emerson’s collaborative platforms, organisations can work with Emerson experts at every project phase from anywhere in the world.
No matter the size or scope of a project, Emerson delivers project certainty with a solution that streamlines project management from the earliest planning stages through implementation and ongoing support, delivering projects on time and within budget.
