With money being tight in most organisations, it has become increasingly important that the company is getting the most of the resources it already has. In essence there are three parameters that can be adjusted to affect optimal performance. They are:
Equipment Optimisation By verifying that the existing equipment is being used to its fullest advantage it will quickly become clear where the equipment bottlenecks exist.
Operating procedures Operating procedures may vary widely between individuals and from shift-to-shift. Increases in Automation of the plant can help significantly.
Control Optimisation In a typical processing plant, numerous control loops exist – each control loop being responsible for controlling one part of the process. It is essential that each control loop is checked to ensure it has been properly designed and tuned, specifically after time when manufacturing /process changes have occurred.
