Emerson’s new engineering software accelerates plant modernization using artificial intelligence

REVAMP simplifies and accelerates the transition to a modern automation architecture, reducing capital costs by up to 15 percent.

AUSTIN, Texas, in 2023 August 29 /PRNewswire/ — Global technology and software leader Emerson (NYSE: EMR) helps customers move legacy technologies faster and more efficiently to the modern DeltaV™ automation architecture that modernizes and digitizes operations. Emerson’s REVAMP the advanced software solution uses cloud computing and artificial intelligence (AI) to automate up to 70% of system configuration, reduce errors and manual conversion work, and reduce capital costs by up to 15%.

“Modernization projects too often surprise teams late in the process with complex, unforeseen work and manual conversion errors,” he said. Claudio Fayad, Vice President of Process Systems and Solutions Business Technology at Emerson. “Emerson REVAMP helps project engineering teams modernize their systems more easily, on time and on budget, while reducing errors and production disruptions.

Organizations looking to modernize their management and security systems often start with decades-old code that must be migrated to current software. Manually converting and documenting this code is a difficult process that significantly increases the time and capital required for these projects.

Emerson’s advanced software, REVAMP, combines an extensive knowledge base from similar retrofit projects with Emerson’s library of experience to create continuously updated AI models. Each modernized control system feeds back into the REVAMP software and creates learning algorithms that keep getting smarter and faster at converting legacy code.

AI in REVAMP informs project teams of engineering requirements before migration projects begin, making planning simple. The AI ​​engine analyzes local files from backups of existing distributed control systems, safety device systems or programmable logic controllers, using a global library of thousands of successful projects to sort, select and automate engineering tasks. The modernization project is automatically fully documented, and significant parts can be generated in the DeltaV control system, enabling the latest capabilities and using modern standards.

Emerson project teams around the world have access to the latest features and libraries of this secure cloud tool. And with embedded machine learning, libraries grow and improve as projects become more efficient over time.
