Lowering System Lifecycle Costs Risk through System Evolution
stated earlier, long-standing commitment system owners that ensures future advances system technologies will enhance rather than compromise their current system investments. over years, ABB's evolution policies have allowed system owners maximize useful life both their control systems intellectual assets built upon them. Through stepwise their system evolution solutions, risk associated with system change mitigated; minimizing process/ system down-time protecting owner's long-term investments control applications, process graphics, historical data. Working side-by-side with Harmony system owners guided owner's business goals, assists development evolution path pace. Regardless whether initial investment made years ago, installed automation system still vital sustainable part business manufacturing strategy that enhanced extended years come that presents lowest lifecycle costs lowest risk.
Four-Point Evolution Strategy
Superior products cornerstone ABB's evolution strategy; however, simply incorporating products into existing system will ensure success provide desired results. ABB's evolution commitment consists four-point strategy that represents comprehensive solution provides roadmap successful system evolution. This four-point strategy includes: Product Planning Process ABB's system planning development strategy fundamental features capabilities must adapted seamlessly with minimum impact existing applications. development process involves rigid guidelines ensure compatibility differing versions models system components. Each step natural progression current system offering never behaves like plug-in adaptation someone else's product. example, application code runs when first developed controllers seamlessly coexist same control network previous generation controllers. order fulfill individually tailored upgrade path, system enhancements provide unique blend flexibility scalability. ability match hardware software different generations major strength. services solutions that preserve system owner's investments. This ensures continued base control hardware infrastructure protects intellectual asset investment made software applications. example:
Graphics: Save time expense re-engineering intensive user/operator retraining History data preservation restores existing historical data transferred directly history platform Wiring: Eliminates need field re-wiring reduces time costs re-testing when existing replaced with product applications: Preservation field proven control configurations documentation minimizes production risk project engineering costs
Harmony System Customer Evolution Planning Process successful evolution program begins with solid plan driven owner's business goals. Good planning critical incremental, stepwise evolution minimize negative production impact actual upgrade process. simplify improve yearly budgeting process facilitate better system upgrades planned plant shutdowns. Individualized planning essential. Different industries invariably have different strategies business issues going forward. ABB, account managers technical experts work with system owners individually address their unique needs. collaborative relationship results best strategies each individual site. After comprehensive audit existing system, with understanding business drivers, will:
year plan reviewed revised necessary. ABB's incremental approach supports flexibility; allowing changes plan required over time. target which facilities greatest risk production loss those that have greatest potential increased production. each phase identified, will provide value assessments Return-on-Investment support consideration order facilitate successful project appropriation requests. long-term plan periodically; update required reflect changing business needs solutions. This approach takes guessing budgeting process. part this planning process, specific projects identified implemented.
Customer Evolution Programs promotes proactive approach hardware software upgrades; working with system owners stay current avoid hitting brick wall obsolescence through stepwise, incremental upgrades. This philosophy allows system owners continuously improve productivity technologies automation product offerings become available. evolution programs provide financial flexibility move from existing automation system products new, higher performance human system interfaces, system engineering tools, controllers, control networks, information management functional area time. ABB's Automation Sentinel software management program assists system owners actively managing their lifecycle costs control system software. With this program, they keep control software up-to-date maintain flexible path forward system software technology. Automation Sentinel helps manage software assets with timely delivery latest software releases, thus providing subscribers:
productivity through enhanced software functionality support cost simpler software management through known annual subscription fees stay current with latest industry standards Access most current system documentation Evolution higher levels human system interface, control, information management, connectivity

Solutions Delivery Delivery sound system solutions based evolution plans another important process evolution value chain. ABB's system engineers highly trained, skilled, equipped with tools resources right. These resources know what installed, know what needed meet future goals, have know deliver project begins with comprehensive review requirements formulated long-term plan. engineers work closely with system owner formulate project plan that achieves desired results. Based this collaborative effort, engineers design solution that delivers results, protects system investments, presents lowest risk possible during installation.
With today's economic restraints putting pressure capital spending, system owners need perform smarter better substantial cost savings. business challenge they face squeeze most productivity from their installed system through functions features, extend useful life applications within reduce maintenance costs while improving overall reliability. delivers extended automation scope that enables system owners successful today's highly competitive business markets evolving their existing Symphony Harmony system with Industrial Extended Automation System 800xA's best-in-class productivity enhancement software.
