New podcast: Planning your DCS migration
A veteran of many migration projects offers her insights.
Marjorie Ochsner, senior product manager and migration specialist for Honeywell Process Solutions , discusses how to know when it’s time to move and how to make the process as painless as possible. ( .)
In the podcast, Ochsner considers a group of practical topics:
What are the signs that it’s time to change;
How far down should a change extend;
How to define business goals;
Is it best to begin with the HMI;
What can your operators tell you;
How much of an old system, both hardware and intellectual property, can you retain; and
What are the best planning steps to ensure a low risk change.
Ochsner has gone through this process many times, so her input should give you some practical pointers.
