Control System Integrators Association (CSIA). Courtesy: CSIAWhen industrial automation clients have questions about how to invest in new or updated infrastructure to improve production capacity, a Control System Integrators Association (CSIA) Certified control system integrator can provide answers. This is according to a new guide, CSIA Certification: What are the benefits to clients, found at www.controlsys.org/certification.

“CSIA Certification sets our members apart from other control system integrators and drives the industry,” says Bob Lowe, executive director of CSIA. “Whether a large corporation or a small independently owned business, clients benefit from the guidance of a CSIA Certified integrator. Our certified integrator members offer insight gained from experience and CSIA’s rigorous certification process.”

With CSIA Certification, an integrator follows CSIA Best Practices in such areas as general management, financial management, project management, system development lifecycle and quality assurance. Certification requires members to undergo an intense third-party audit and abide by strict performance standards. An audit is required every three years, adds Lowe, to maintain CSIA Certification.

“In a world where anyone can say they are a control system integrator, how can our clients be sure of our ability to design, implement and test automation systems? With CSIA Certification, directors of manufacturing, plant operations managers and other industry leaders can be confident in a CSIA integrator’s business and project management skills. These attributes reduce the risk of failure and increase the probability of successful automation projects.”
