CONTROL STATION, CONTROL AND OPERATIONS CENTERS
CENTRALIZED CONTROL: A PIONEERING INVESTMENT
Automated controls needs supervision! If it’s getting more complex or the system forms part of a plant (e.g. a production line), central monitoring is mandatory. Alternatively, the machines concerned are operated and maintained by local staff, but still monitored and (semi)-automatically controlled from a central control station, taking into account the status of the other system components.
For a relatively simple operation system structure, a central control station turns out to be worth considering, as place where all information is gathered and distributed. Another function of the control station is monitoring the plant operation.
IS YOUR COMPANY A “SMART FACTORY”?
If you don’t want to miss Industry 4.0. this question is of additional importance. In simplified terms we understand this as distributed systems of interlinked machines and robots. If a data exchange has to happen between operational plants and other company facilities with interlinked IT systems across the enterprise, the former simple control station turns into a high-tech control or operations center and your business is ready for the next logical step, to “Industry 4.0”.
Besides the functional needs, the design of a control or operations center has to be given special attention in order to be compliant with a variety of safety, ergonomic and legal norms and standards. Not only the guidelines for the control room and for the production facility itself have to be observed, but also the operational requirements. The plant operation aspects, as well as the interfaces associated with the operation of the control station, shall be subject to a detailed analysis in order to avoid future problem areas and operational bottlenecks. Finally, the design shall be focused on a seamless commissioning, and on error- and conflict-free integration of the new control center into the production environment of the company.
