Virtualization

Utilizing control system virtualization is an excellent way to reduce overall operating cost by eliminating hardware, utilities, and maintenance. Our process solutions group has implemented virtualization not only for customers, but also in our own processes. 

Front End Design

Front-End design activities are critical to the success of a project. Our team can help outline budget, design, execution, and deployment of large scale industrial control system projects.

Control Narratives

Control narratives can be subset of a design specification. We tailor our deliverables to match the size and scope of the project thus saving you money.

An Introduction to System Legacy Migration

Because the associated consequences are so severe, we can all be grateful that the concept of Legacy Migration is very simple. Legacy migration is a process in which obsolete control system hardware and software are upgraded to maintain the current standards – simply, the current technology – so that you can continue to run your facility with a mitigated risk of failure.
