PREMIER Supports Australia Plant Batching System
Cincinnati, OH - PREMIER’s Engineering group in Cincinnati, OH recently completed R&D validation for a new batching system being commissioned in Australia. Our Customer presented PREMIER with an immediate opportunity that required one of our batching system experts to travel overseas in less than three weeks. After reviewing the project requirements and matching that with an available resource, we made the necessary project adjustments to meet this need. Due to the critical nature of the time onsite and production start up schedule, the team needed to quickly develop a detailed validation plan to ensure success. Another challenge the team had to overcome was the 14-hour time difference. This required a few late evening / early morning conference calls which enabled the teams to work together remotely.
The Batching system was developed utilizing Rockwell Automation ControlLogix PLC’s and WonderWare ArchestrA based System architecture. With the help from PREMIER’s engineering team the customer was able to meet the Quality and Production requirements for their customer.
