Most Indiana production facilities and businesses today operate through the use of technology. Each component of the business is controlled to optimize performance and efficiency. Coordinating all of those systems and managing the security and the performance of core and critical business operations is at the heart of the move to integrated control systems.
There are many benefits of migrating to these integrated controls over operating different systems monitoring and managing different aspects of the business. To understand these benefits and why top companies across the country are moving in this direction, let’s take a closer look at the most commonly noted advantages.
One Control System
While it is possible to monitor and managed discrete systems through remote devices and networked computers, the more systems there are, the greater the risk of missing an alert, warning or a problem. Too often Indiana plants find out after an equipment failure that there were warning signs that were missed.
With integrated control systems all systems are displayed and managed to one user interface, ensuring that all alerts, notifications, reports and real-time data can be easily accessed and displayed through one login on one interface.
Enhanced Performance and Efficiency
Just because individual components of a system are working at peak efficiency doesn’t mean the system integrates and results in the highest levels of performance.
When using integrated control systems, it is possible to track production throughout the complete system without any loss of data or issues with data transfer between systems. This often highlights integration problems in the facility by pointing out where bottlenecks and problems are occurring.
With this information, it is possible to make adjustments and refinements to the entire system to enhance performance and to boost efficiency. Without this big picture view, it would be much more challenging to locate areas of deficiency and make the improvements to bring up production and performance.
