Advanced Process Control and Online Optimization Market Driven by Ease-of-Use Functionality

During this current period of oil price volatility, budgets are tight and the final investment decision on many capital projects is delayed or canceled.  Owner-operators have turned investment projects from large capital, asset-intensive, new builds and plant modifications, to sustaining, optimization, and safety projects for existing facilities for sustainable operations, production improvement, and reducing maintenance costs.

The advanced process control (APC) and online optimization market is driven by advances in ease-of-use functionality.  In prior years, investments were about visualization and improvements in operator-usability which would allow the operator to better understand how the APC “black box” was impacting the process.

Fast-forward to today, this functionality is aimed at the control engineer, sustainability, model maintenance, and simplification of APC implementation services.

The emergence of “service-less” and self-tuning of the model objective and economic function, combined with model self-calibrating functionality, greatly reduces the complexity and cost associated with implementation and maintenance.  Reduced cost and complexity of APC applications means plant engineers can target smaller scope or unconventional optimization projects, where traditionally, APC has been difficult to justify.
