How to Take Advantage of a Highly Integrated Process Control and Edge Control Platform
September 06, 2022
Rockwell Automation and Sensia
Integration of edge computers with real-time process control data is important for users who want to implement analysis and advanced data processing in the field. Traditionally, edge computers are a separate device that must be integrated with controllers and flow computers. Custom applications can be run on the edge computer that will allow for highly advanced real-time analysis of the field measurements, however building an edge environment and integrating data can be a non-trivial task. Similarly, selecting the right edge platform requires deep knowledge of security, application, and communication requirements. Sensia provides a new perspective for those wanting to implement edge computing with their real time control systems. We will discuss and show examples of what a highly integrated edge and control environment can look like and how it creates new options for how you manage and plan your automation projects.

Improving Safety by Digitizing Field Workflows
August 11, 2022
Deskless workers play a significant role in supporting and maintaining distributed upstream operations. Many field operators record inspection rounds and maintenance activities using pen and paper, and then manually update that data to a computer when they return to the office. This tedious, manual approach is error prone, and aggregation of data is a challenge, slowing the ability to detect technical issues early to prevent equipment downtime and unsafe situations. It makes compliance with growing regulations more difficult, and it impacts employee productivity and safety in the field. Utilization of digital tools transforms the deskless worker by providing access to real-time information where it’s needed to perform the prescribed tasks competently, efficiently, and safely. Standardized digital processes and access to remote experts help to increase process efficiency and minimize errors, and enable smart, data-driven decisions to enhance worker performance and safety. A case study will be presented to demonstrate digitized workflows in an upstream application. Learn how: -Automating best practices can ensure consistency and compliance -Mobile applications and on-demand information help improve efficiency and safety -Implementation options allow for choice between SaaS, on-premises, and hybrid deployment -Digitized workflows can ensure that safety is the number one priority
