Process Data Lacking?

Automation gains are often realized on the back end of a project. Having a strategy upfront increases the effectiveness, cost, and maintenance of your equipment. Automation seems to get attention only when things go poorly, so let us highlight some non-obvious gains you have likely experienced but didn’t notice because it “just worked”.
The non-obvious gain from reducing duplicated effort is costs, effort, and schedule. Bringing a project in on time is the expectation but given the reality of complex projects nailing a turnover date set months in advance should also be celebrated.

Another gain is in commissioning and validation. A solid strategy upfront can identify the most efficient way to document, develop, and test a solution to avoid duplicated or unnecessarily complicated acceptance test protocols. Taking a risk-based approach and leveraging previous testing in a change-controlled environment can save thousands (dollars and hours).
Lucid strives to identify a solid strategy from project inception or at the RFP stage. Our experience helps us to identify efficiencies and engage the right stake holders to get buy-in to the strategy early.

Automation is typically the last part of any project or equipment installation. Having a strategy helps us, help you get everything done on time while absorbing upstream delays.
