Why is a short-sighted firefighting mentality in automation commonplace? Production plants are up against a wide variety of risks to productivity and product quality. When every minute of downtime can cost thousands, it is critical to resume production as quickly as possible.
Despite this, very few production plants are adequately prepared for worst-case scenarios or even everyday issues. Instead, engineers and maintenance personnel frantically rush to solve unexpected problems, make impulsive decisions, and apply “band-aid” solutions to restore production ASAP.
This free white paper discusses how better data management can transform industrial automation for increased productivity with fewer problems.
