From design through project execution, operations and maintenance, Yokogawa makes it possible for manufacturers to maintain Operational Excellence over the entire plant lifecycle.
Yokogawa is transforming and changing its focus from products to customers, providing value in projects together with our customers. Yokogawa is actively involved in the pre-FEED stage, where it can work with the owner and EPC to anticipate and resolve difficulties in project and technology integration.
Yokogawa not only designs an optimal Lifecycle Plan for the customer’s control systems but also monitors, implements and redesign through lifecycle.
Aging of your plant and system is inevitable. Customers are faced with the challenge of keeping up with the latest technological advances, while keeping their maintenance and operational costs low. Yokogawa’s Masterplan services will provide you with an in-depth study on how a consolidated production system improves production efficiency by using the latest information/control technologies and control room consolidation.
Effective alarm management provides a clear view of the operating conditions, eliminating the blind spots that can lead to unnecessary plant downtime. Long experience has shown that alarm design based on the EEMUA#-191 guidelines is the most fundamental way to prevent alarm flooding situations. Yokogawa helps clients implement an EEMUA 191 based alarm system.
It is important to conduct benchmarking. Yokogawa Comparative Effectiveness Analysis service gathers operational data for automatic calculation of KPIs, which is then used by Yokogawa to provide periodical benchmarking reports.
Control room design needs to take into consideration all aspects of the work environment including operator comfort, ergonomics, safety, ease of communication, functionality, automation of systems, and business policy. Yokogawa helps clients physically consolidate and functionally integrate their control rooms.
Industry leaders have recognized that there is a need for a standard around automating procedures and have formed the ISA-106 committee whose purpose is to develop standards, recommended practices, and technical reports on the design and implementation of procedures for automating continuous process operations. Yokogawa has been involved in this standardization effort and has developed a solution offering that address the issues covered in the emerging standard—Modular Procedural Automation.
PID control plays a fundamental role in process control. Proper setup and tuning are required for stable plant operation and are a prerequisite for advanced process control. Yokogawa provides a standardized approach to the implementation of regulatory control stabilization with fixed procedures and methods that ensure optimum and safe plant controls.
Yokogawa provides a full range of HMI design consulting capabilities to assist understanding of the current situation compared to industry standards (ISA101) and peer performance; combined with our experience to drive improvement within production facilities. Based on our proven performance, knowledge, and experience, we offer consulting services for graphic design of process control system to improve productivity, safety, and the work condition of your plants.
