ECS Maximizes Your Value with TPA Principles

You have many options for automating your processes. ECS is different because of its commitment to the six principles of Total Process Automation. ECS solutions are comprehensive, reliable, effective, agile, maintainable, and standards-based to save you money and shorten your time to market for the long term.

Comprehensive

You need a system that can emphasize overall manufacturing velocity instead of unit operations. Comprehensive ECS solutions help you

  • Integrate operations management and manufacturing control (batch, continuous or discrete) activities
  • Eliminate manual, paper-based processes
  • Collect and analyze data for optimization, maintenance and compliance

Reliable

With 40 years of Total Process Automation experience, ECS knows how to create reliable systems that

  • Run on hardened, sometimes redundant, industrial control systems
  • Use commercial off-the-shelf software or reuse tested software
  • Monitor themselves or supply data for external monitoring

Effective

Value-focused solutions from ECS don’t just measure effectiveness (OEE). They also

  • Drive improvement
  • Produce consistently high-quality products
  • Lock in the best costs to avoid budget surprises

Agile

The ability to change when your production and regulation needs change ensures your longevity. Flexible ECS solutions

  • Reduce time to market
  • Lower risk and cost
  • Help you adapt to human workflows instead of dictating them

Maintainable

ECS’s maintainable solutions incorporate commercial off-the-shelf hardware and software as well as ergonomic and intuitive tools and training to help you

  • Be proactive instead of reactive
  • Resolve issues rapidly
  • Minimize turnover-related training costs

Standards-Based

ECS knows the best solutions are open, integrated, and able to comply with both current and future standards. ECS solutions comply with

  • ISA-88 standard for batch control
  • ANSI/ISA-95 standard for enterprise control system integration
