If you’re a facility manager (or any employee working across a supply chain), you need to make sure that you have access to as much information as possible. Increasing visibility across your supply chain is critical for maximizing performance and generating high-quality, repeatable results. You’ll be able to program your system, centralize operations, and develop the programmable logic controller (PLC) monitoring from one convenient platform.
DCS software also includes tools that make managing plant information (and integrating it vertically into the supply chain) simple, allowing the facility manager to establish a system for the entire production hierarchy. Automated control systems give you a real-time glimpse into the inner workings of your processes and allow you to make necessary changes in areas that otherwise might be overlooked or neglected.
