The Challenges and the SolutionsTo capitalize on opportunities and remain competitive in the international marketplace, KKPC needed to expand its SBC capabilities and improve production efficiency at its plants by upgrading their automation systems. With the Exaquantum solution, KKPC not only gained a fully-featured PIMS, it also benefited from tight integration with Yokogawa’s CENTUM DCS, enabling a speedy roll-out and lowering engineering costs. Exaquantum’s use of the industry-standard OPC interface also meant that it could be easily integrated with the Honeywell control systems at this company’s plants.Exaquantum helped improve efficiency at KKPC’s plants by improving access to process data for all operators, engineers, and executives while maintaining DCS security and integrity. Exaquantum also enhanced efficiency by making it possible to customize for each type of user the type of data that can be accessed and the way in which it is presented.Efficiency is further promoted thanks to Exaquantum's role based name space (RBNS) functionality that permits users (with appropriate permissions) at the company’s plants and at the head office to view information from multiple Exaquantum servers, at different locations. RBNS can be configured to provide personalized folder hierarchies and naming conventions for the viewing of Exaquantum process data, when the Exaquantum Data Selector is used within Exaquantum/Explorer, Exaquantum/Web, or the Exaquantum Excel add-in across all Exaquantum servers.The Exaquantum/Batch system at the Ulsan site manages the many different types of polymer batch products that KKPC produces. The ability of KKPC to identify a specific production cycle as a “golden batch” and compare this with other batches of the same formulation enables Exaquantum/Batch users to identify and correct deviations from the expected process parameters during the production cycle, instead of having to wait until the batch is complete to analyze its success. A further benefit of choosing Exaquantum/Batch is its close integration with CENTUM CS 3000 Batch. By using the OPC interface, Exaquantum/Batch could collect batch information within minutes of being installed. Another key benefit of the Exaquantum system is its built-in drag and drop trending functionality. Users are thus able to quickly compare key process parameters using easily recognizable equipment names, rather than the obscure tag references that are frequently used.Mimics are used in conjunction with all the Exaquantum servers. Their drill-down functionality enables users to quickly locate and resolve potential issues at the plant before they develop into more serious problems. The graphic conversion facility enabled existing DCS graphics to be automatically ported over to Exaquantum, for immediate use or for further modification.Customer Satisfaction“By using for Yokogawa’s Exaquantum, Exapilot, and APC solutions in our plants, we were able to improve product quality and reduce operating costs.
