Today’s automation empowers productivity and performance. The combination of our deep understanding of our customer’s business needs, and our extensive process automation experience, enables us to deliver intelligent automation, even in the most critical situations.
Doing so much more than simply implementing market-leading platforms – we deliver real solutions.
We have the knowledge, experience and agility to help you whether you want to invest in new automation technology plant-wide or to plan automation upgrade programmes across multiple sites. Our recommendations are based on an in-depth understanding of your challenges, and we formulate them to match perfectly with your existing infrastructure.
Why AG Solution for Automation
Process automation is a long-term capital investment. Get it wrong, and downtime will cost you even more. It is crucial to work with a partner who understands the shop floor and automation, who has years of deep knowledge and experience and the certifications to prove it.
AG Solution Group is that partner. We are intentionally different because we are so much more than just installers of platforms – we create intelligent solutions. We understand your process needs as well as your business needs. Our dedicated team of experts integrate into your business – from the shop floor to management - to establish long-term partnerships to build a clear path to Industry 4.0.
Master plan consulting service
Looking to define your future automation investments with a detailed implementation plan backed by a rigorous business case? AG Solution Group can help. Rapid advancements in automation technology allow you to make significant improvements in your plant performance. Our deep industry understanding, our process automation expertise and our proven global track record will help you take advantage of this technology and maximise your long-term return on investment.
Defining a project’s scope in detail is key. With our thorough understanding of industry and of process automation, we turn this into an easy task. We carry out technical and functional feasibility studies but also review your automation configuration’s architecture, standards and compliance. Furthermore, we can include your Layer 2 (ISA95) control systems in a value stream mapping exercise. All these factors play a role in AG Solution Group creating the right solution for you.
A thorough investigation by our expert consultants consists of auditing your hardware and software, your infrastructure and even your library of documentation and your back-up systems. By detecting risks and defining where critical points of failure might occur, we work with you to mitigate those risks and their impact.
It is important to manage your automation projects with the same concept and philosophy. An important part of this is the creation of an automation library which contains the different types of equipment you use in your plants (e.g. motors, valves, digital signals, analogue signals, …). We create this library together with you. We document and maintain it, and we train and support your people in using this library in your automation projects.
Turnkey project execution
We are experts in process automation, so you can confidently work with us on design, supply and installation of your entire automation project from start to finish – from software development, all the way to SAT, FAT and IOQ. Moreover, our training ensures that you are ready to “turn the key” and go live. After this, we are always available to support you during on-going operations and for scheduled maintenance.
Robust data integrity is vital, and we are here to help your data work hard for you. Data integrity ensures that valid and accurate data can be recovered, searched and traced. But data connectivity with shop floor equipment, including HMI, sensors and end devices, should be a top priority. SCADA systems and PLC's are crucial here and ensure data integrity mitigates downtime.
