WEBINAR - Benefit sustainment of control assets using Control Performance Analytics Unified

Published by
Hydrocarbon Engineering,

On 29 September, Hydrocarbon Engineering will host a webinar with Honeywell, which will showcase how Control Performance Analytics Unified (CPA-U) can solve key customer expectations around the need to understand quantified performance through financial metrics.

Control assets such as PIDs, instruments, analysers, APCs, etc. are initially ‘engineered’ to maximise plant performance, but their effectiveness declines over time. This happens due to various reasons such as changes in operations, reliability issues, overloaded maintenance teams, faulty maintenance models, etc. Problems with one control asset can impact others (e.g. a sticky valve can impact regulatory control, online inferentials and MPC). Globally, up to 75% of regulatory controls in a typical plant are under performing, and most MPC applications deliver only 50% of their original benefits within three years of deployment. In a world-scale refinery or chemical plant, estimated losses are in the millions of dollars.

This presentation outlines Honeywell’s approach to benefit the sustainment of control assets using CPA-U.

CPA-U is a control performance improvement product that identifies and diagnoses the causes of poor control at all levels of the plant control hierarchy - instruments, PIDs, analysers and APCs. It is a tool that ties APC and PID maintenance requirements through an integrated approach, provides quantified performance metrices (actionable insights) and recommendations, and enables a simplified user experience - workflow through dispositions, action tracking, reporting capabilities.

CPA-U is a DCS platform and it is APC vendor independent. It has a flexible deployment architecture - in Cloud and on-premise. When implemented in Cloud, CPA-U can drive performance management services fully owned by Honeywell.
