New DCS Migration White Papers Released by Rockwell Automation

Many process facilities have an outdated Distributed Control System (DCS) currently in place. As a DCS reaches the end of its useful life, migration to a new automation system is required.

Three new white papers from Rockwell Automation, “Justification for Migration,” “DCS Migration Strategy and Implementation,” and “Automation System Optimization,” examine the different financial, strategic and optimization advantages associated with migration, and address valuable plant inquiries that usually accompany the topic. The three papers focus on different steps within the migration process and give detailed insights into migration.

  • Justification for Migration – This paper examines how to accurately analyze the total cost of ownership for continued operation on an outdated DCS and how to justify the benefits of replacing it.
  • DCS Migration Strategy and Implementation – This paper shares strategies for upgrading an existing legacy DCS to a new automation system, and focuses on how to implement the chosen strategies while maximizing uptime, and minimizing cost and risk.
  • Automation System Optimization – This paper examines the specific ways in which a new automation system can deliver superior performance as compared to a typical legacy DCS.

“Many companies may not realize that the very same DCS system installed years ago to improve productivity and reduce costs, is actually negatively affecting productivity and the bottom line today,” says Mike Vernak, DCS marketing manager, Rockwell Automation. “Much of the expense is due to the difficulty in maintaining technical expertise and finding spare parts for the 25- to 30-year-old legacy systems.”

The white papers, “Justification for Migration,” “DCS Migration Strategy and Implementation,” and “Automation System Optimization,” are available here. Rockwell Automation has conducted three webinars on DCS migration to accompany the white papers. These webinars can be found here.
