ExperTune's newest development is a bulk database import for setting up an entire plant for monitoring and assessment in PlantTriage (tm). PlantTriage continually monitors the plant and assesses its performance. Areas with the greatest need are prioritized for maintenance and engineering.The initial challenge in monitoring and assessing an entire plant, is setting up the addresses for all the instruments and controllers. John Gerry of ExperTune says, "PlantTriage makes this easy by using a smart wizard-based bulk import. The wizard (Patent Pending) has intelligence about specific control systems so that it polls the control system for most of the data it needs."The result is that PlantTriage imports, from your database, only the information necessary for the wizard to get started. It then reads as much information as possible directly from the process control computer. Optionally, the user could enter the addresses in Excel and direct PlantTriage to use Excel. Once setup, PlantTriage will monitor and assess every control loop in the plant, assuring optimal plant operation.ExperTune's full suite of optimization tools are designed to increase the efficiency of your process. ExperTune's PlantTriage monitors and assesses the entire plant, assuring optimal operation. ExperTune's analysis includes simulation, modeling, robustness, linearization, valve wear analysis, pH linearizer, time series analysis, multivariable, statistical, frequency response and PID tuning tools.For more information, pleae visit
