September 27, 2018 – Emerson has announced a new program designed to help original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) improve the reliability and performance of the modular process systems they design and manufacture, often referred to as skids.
As part of the new initiative, Emerson identifies interested OEMs as Engineered Solutions Providers, providing them access to dedicated Emerson representatives, extra support and workshops.
“By collaboratively solving business problems, Emerson’s new program helps our Engineered Solutions Providers optimize the automation, instrumentation, and remote monitoring capabilities of their engineered solutions,” says Melissa Holler, vice-president of Emerson Automation Solutions. “It also creates opportunities to pass those benefits on to their customers, which ultimately strengthens their position to win more business.”
Additionally, Engineered Solutions Providers can use solutions such as those found in Emerson’s Plantweb digital ecosystem. The ecosystem is a portfolio that offers software, data analytics and product technology and services, all integrated and optimized to harness the power of digital transformation to improve reliability and performance of engineered solutions.
For example, from acquiring the right data using Emerson’s portfolio of wireless transmitters—which providers can retrofit to existing skids—in combination with Plantweb Insight applications to remotely monitor critical equipment on supplied skids, Engineered Solutions Providers can help their customers shift from outdated reactive maintenance approaches to predictive maintenance strategies complete with sensors and remote monitoring.
Emerson’s new program includes a series of tailored workshops to help Engineered Solutions Providers simplify and accelerate the evaluation of new technologies. Workshop participants will collaborate with Emerson experts on topics including best practices for the automation of technology platforms, using pervasive sensing and remote monitoring as a differentiator, and application-specific technology options and pilots.
