For process manufacturing companies every minute of operation matters. At the heart of most process plants the distributed control system or D.C.S. The DCS is the brain and nervous system of a process plant a mission critical system that connects instruments, actuators and field controllers into a unified , automated control platform. Without interruption a DCS must perform reliably 24/7 for years at a time. Many things can cause unexpected downtime. External factors or natural causes, human or maintenance errors and hard ware or system failures. Any unexpected downtime means lost revenue, lost profit or even a safety incident. Considering all the possible causes of plant trips the control system should be the most reliable. However many plants experience control system related outages as often as 13 times a year.

Even with a control system reliability of 99.99% a petrochemical facility can experience of to 65 million dollars in lost capacity over 12 years. Since inventing the DCS in 1975, Yokogawa customers have achieved real world system availability of 99.99999% Seven nines means less than one minute of DCS related downtime in ten years.
