News: Improve your plant up-time starting today!

We have pooled our collective experiences on the 12 top reasons for suboptimal plant throughput and unexpected plant shutdowns, as seen from a control-system perspective. We refer to these as the Automation Dirty Dozen.

This last instalment in our series of 12 addresses the impact of root causes of trips not being identified and addressed. The article can be downloaded from the Oil and Gas industry section of our website at Automation Dirty Dozen.
