Automation infrastructure: Conference targets alarm management, process control


Hartland, WI —'Building a stronger automation foundation' is the theme of a joint ExperTune / TiPS user's conference planned for this spring in Austin, TX. The event, to take place April 17-19, will focus on technologies and techniques that strengthen and restore automation. ExperTune is a developer of optimization software for the process industries, including PlantTriage. TiPS offers alarm management software. Its flagship is LogMate.

The two software companies say they share a common philosophy of helping clients ensure that control system fundamentals are leveraged successfully to deliver safety, quality, reliability, and profits. Said John Gerry, ExperTune president, 'Many of our clients and business partners are leaders in the field of process control optimization. We expect this to be an outstanding learning opportunity for everyone.'

Bob Weibel, TiPS president, noted 'a wide range of experience related to alarm management and its influence on control. This conference brings people from different perspectives together to share and learn. It will be an invaluable forum for anyone involved in designed or using regulatory control.'

The 3-day program will include hands-on training, case studies, and roundtables. Attendees will try out optimization techniques from classrooms equipped with wireless networks connected to full-scale process simulations.
