While production systems grow more and more complex, they also need to fulfill increased expectations on reliability and efficiency.


Modifications and enhancements often extent into the operational phase. As a consequence, projects become more complex and need to completed within tighter timeframes making cost intensive work – whether at night or on weekends necessary.


There are three shared characteristics of every successfully implemented system:

1. compliance with agreed quality standards

2. costs

3. time / deadlines


Consequently, the standardization of automation projects must be addressed in every phase of the project. Standardized components and functions ensure an efficient project process from design- to start-up phase.
