Engineering

Engineering determines completely the solution that the automation project aims to implement.

Engineering¬†includes the preparation of documents, or other means, to clearly present the projected solution. Not only¬†must it¬†”determine”, but it must “clearly state what is determined”.

Engineering also determines accurately how the chosen solution will be implemented. Time scheduling is particularly important.

Engineering is the key to success. All activities will be carried out following what was established in the engineering documentation.

Automation project documentation is usually the following:

  • General description of chosen solution.
  • Control architecture.
  • Instrument specifications.
  • Dimensional drawings for electrical and control cabinets.
  • One-line diagrams for electrical feeds.
  • Calculation of wire cross-sections and electrical protections.

  • Process control regulation diagrams.
  • Schematic representation¬†for process operation and supervision.
  • Test protocols.
  • Time scheduling for project activities.
