VigilantPlant is Yokogawa's automation concept for safe, reliable and profitable plant operations
Our concept is for a plant to be a place where people can be watchful and attentive, while the business responds quickly and efficiently to change. Non-stop production is assured as the plant’s personnel confidently expand their capabilities.
In such a well managed plant, it is possible to plan for the future and make the kind of changes needed to optimize every aspect of its operations. It keeps evolving in response to changing needs.
We are committed to working with our customers as partners to help them get maximum value from their plant operations. Our mission is to ensure their long-term success and help to build a more sustainable world.
When plant personnel are able to SEE CLEARLY what is happening in every corner of their plant, KNOW IN ADVANCE what is going to happen in a process, and ACT WITH AGILITY by making fast and intelligent decisions, Operational Excellence is the result.
We provide clear visibility of plant information in the form of anytime, anywhere, accurate, and real-time information throughout the plant.
We analyze collected data, predict what will happen, and provide information that will help to determine how best to respond.
We provide advanced support solutions that will help you respond agilely to changes in your business by making well informed and timely decisions.

How do you live up to the promise of Operational Excellence? That was the theme for Yokogawa's fourth EMEA user conference, which took place in Barcelona/Spain in September 2008. Organizers and a Steering Committee of nine users had put together an extensive program of presentations for the period September 23–26.
Yokogawa proposed the VigilantPlant concept as an ideal plant that achieves fully optimized operation where all the necessary information is given to all the operators involved in the plant operation. In VigilantPlant, operators are able to quickly respond to changes in the external environment while the production activities run without any interruption.
Due to emerging competitors from the rapidly growing countries such as India and China and the global economic downturn triggered by the Lehman shock, many companies in the process industries are struggling to survive the severe global competition.
