DCS Migration

Does the thought of a control system migration keep you up at night?

The challenge of managing the upgrade and migration of your facility’s legacy control systems can be both exciting and overwhelming. To determine the best path forward, you must carefully weigh the facts to fully understand which path holds the most risk and which one yields the best return on investment (ROI).

However, like most people, you probably have more questions than answers.

MAVERICK finds unique answers for these problems.

How do I get the funding and ensure ROI for a distributed control system (DCS) upgrade or migration?

Who are the stakeholders and how should they be engaged?

How does upfront planning impact total project cost?

What happens if my control system fails and I don’t have the parts and people to fix it?

How long can I continue to support my existing control system?

How do I leverage the latest technologies?

How do I make sure personnel can effectively navigate HMI screens and respond to critical alarms quickly and accurately?

How do I keep my DCS network secure?

How do I subjectively evaluate vendor capabilities?

How do I identify opportunities for system innovations that will make our new system more safe, efficient and user-friendly?

Customized Solutions

How you answer these questions and deal with the challenges associated with them will have a major impact on the outcome. Any project requires an enormous amount of work, and the risks can be high without the right team of experts and proper planning. A DCS should deliver value throughout its entire lifecycle.

Planning

The success or failure of your facility’s migration project largely depends on proper up-front planning, investigation and discovery.
