Industrial Plant Assessment™

The Industrial Plant Assessment (TM) is a set of R and Excel tools to analyze the plant performance utilizing the historical data (1-minute snapshot) to generate:

  • Data Reconciliation
  • Plant Operability Performance: Utilizing Principal Component Analysis applied to all Analog Inputs (AI) and Analog Outputs (AO) and then comparing them.
  • Plant Oscillation: Utilizing Fast Fourier Transformation (FFT) convert the historical data to Frequency data, then identify oscitation clusters.
  • Control Loop Performance: Applying Oscillation analysis to P, PI, or PID controllers utilizing CDL indexing technology, each controller is classified as
    • Required Improvement
    • Normal
    • Excellent

Operating Trends for Excel™ (OT)

An Excel program to develop a visualization of the:

  • Units (UM) within a Plant (PA)
  • Control Modules (CM) within a Unit (UM)
  • The objective is to understand and share with the operation the State-Based Control Design in a visualized environment.
  • Develop an initial list of steps required to implement State-Based Control.

Standard Operating Procedure Analyzer™

A set of Excel Programs to:

  1. Convert Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) to CDL pseudo code (p-Code)
  2.  Develop Step and Transition 
  3. Convert the p-Code to Step Actions
  4. Transfer the results to Industrial IT XML
