Bedrock Automation announces Industrial Control Systems Life Cycle Cost Analysis – Quantitative Evaluation whitepaper

July 18, 2018 – Bedrock Automation, maker of the Bedrock Open Secure Automation (OSA) system, has announced the availability of the fifth in its series of white papers supporting implementation of Open Secure Automation (OSA). The whitepaper, Chapter Five: Industrial Control Systems Life Cycle Cost Analysis – Quantitative Evaluation, delineates 450 different factors that impact costs across the following six phases of the industrial control system (ICS) life cycle: engineering, installation, commissioning, maintenance, system, and cyber security.
 
The Product Evaluation Method is divided into six sections covering different life cycle phases of an ICS asset. Each section defines the criteria against which different vendor’s offerings can be compared. It also provides ranking scores to enable users to rate each vendor’s offerings based on their ability to meet the specific requirement. The document guides users in totalizing and normalizing the ratings to weigh the raw scores according to their overall contribution to the ICS’s life cycle valuation.  An accompanying Excel spreadsheet is available to automatically calculate valuation.
