OUR APPROACH

DOCUMENTATION DEVELOPMENT

In developing documentation for your system, we build directly on detailed system drawings. Whether you have us, your team, or a third party create the detailed drawings, we can use them to develop your documentation.

We handle the Functional Requirement Specification (FRS) and the detailed documentation you need to nail down specific project deliverables and show you how your automation system will operate at each step in its cycle. Finally, we provide system specifications and operator manuals so your team has written resources to reference how to run your process control system.

PROJECT SCOPE DEFINITION

Before we specify components we define the project scope, setting the boundaries by defining deliverables and objectives for everyone involved. That way, your in-house team members and our team know precisely what to do and what to expect from everyone else. We seek to eliminate miscommunication throughout the process and when your system is complete.

FUNCTIONAL REQUIREMENT SPECIFICATION (FRS)

With detailed drawings in hand and the project scope defined, we provide you with a functional specification. Here, we outline the required behavior of your automation system, defining what your system should do. The functional requirement specification (FRS) provides you a high-level overview of your system’s behavior. Through the FRS, we’ll provide the necessary process operation information to your plant operations team, project control engineers and, if you’re in a regulated industry, quality/validation personnel.

SYSTEM DESIGN DETAIL

While the functional requirement specification provides you the overview of your system, we use a separate document to provide your project and system stakeholders with the full technical details. In the system design detail, we cover system architecture design, data design, function design, equipment and network details, and system interface design. It will also detail other requirements of the control system, such as environmental requirements, electrical classification requirements or communications requirements with third party equipment or existing equipment and processes.

DESCRIPTION OF OPERATION & OPERATOR MANUALS

In the description of operation document, we show you an overview of how your operators will use your system. In the operator manuals, we supply your operators with easy-to-follow instructions they can reference while running your process control system. In many cases, we even digitize the operator manuals and make them accessible via the control system’s operator interface.

INDUSTRIAL AUTOMATION FOR RESULTS

In our more than 20 years of helping manufacturers, we’ve intelligently applied automation for hundreds of companies across a wide range of industries. And we’ve earned repeat business from 90 percent of our clients.

Have a question or do you want more output, fewer lost batches and better reports? We can show you how to improve your production and maximize your successes through industrial automation.
