One of the main challenges of retrofitting a Process Control System (PCS), is to clearly tell your Vendors what it is you would like to achieve with the new system. You may just state that you want the plant’s functionality to be exactly as it is today. But, why go through all that trouble just to end up getting what you had before you modernized your PCS?
Retrofits are an excellent opportunity to “clean up” and improve your software’s functionality.
With PCS-Spec we partner with you to provide different types of cost-effective documentation, tools that will empower you to lead the way to fulfilling the functional requirements of your new Process Control System. By documenting your current functionality (As-Is) and specifying your future functionality (To-Be), you will be able to:
- Compare Vendor offers, i.e. “apples with apples”
- Specify Vendor deliverables.
- Verify Vendor deliverables.
Eliminate the guesswork and avoid unwanted surprises when it comes to specifying how your plant will operate after a retrofit or modernization project, by using our PCS-Spec services.
Professional documentation not only helps you control the software quality of your Process Control System and hence the quality of your product, but also serves as a training tool for Operating and Maintenance Personnel, and to comply with regulatory requirements.
