  2. 2. 2© ARC Advisory GroupFrom CPAS to CPAS 2.0CPAS conceived in 2005 Issue: The introduction of internet technology to manufacturingforced most of the suppliers to change their Control LAN andultimately innovate their entire systems. Users asked what to value“everything looked the same” Purpose: Develop an ARC vision of the ideal evolution of currentprocess automation systems. The Collaborative Process AutomationSystem (CPAS) Deliverable: A detailed Outlook StudyCPAS 2.0 conceived in 2009 Issue: There has been an absence of real innovation in both thesystem and field devices. Users have asked how to value what isneeded next Purpose: Develop an ARC forecast of the ideal functional evolutionof process automation systems Deliverable: A detailed Outlook Study

  6. 6. 6© ARC Advisory GroupWe Need Smarter Field Devices 50 -75% of device downtime is caused by lackof confidence in measurement Most field devices do not quantify health orestimate remaining usable life Precludes operations from deciding run/shutdown. Lost critical measurement usually results inshut down Active research, dearth of Products• One product based on SEVA (self evaluatingtechnology BSI 7926)
  7. 7. 7© ARC Advisory GroupSystems Need to Become Truly Distributed Current leading Distributed Control Systemsand the original CPAS are not true DCSs Current DCSs are based on IEC61131-3 whichspecifies programming languages andarchitecture The architecture is limited to a single domainwith all resources operating in unison Resources cannot act autonomouslyCurrent DCSs are a single model with distributedprocessing and shared services
  8. 8. 8© ARC Advisory GroupSystem Resources Need to Operate AutonomouslyWhen Necessary Functionally changes the control level(reconfigure) at run-time Provides the foundation for “zero downtimeautomation systems” and sustainableoperations Supports the utilization of high levelautonomous agent (FIPA), reasoning andmodelingPotentially offers the highest value

  11. 11. 11© ARC Advisory GroupSecure On-Line Version Upgrades At least one major versionupgrade every year Now requires a shut-down or atleast a major vendor supportedcustom revision ARC supports a three step on-line version upgrade Three step has crucial valuedetermining the new version isoperating predictably beforecommitting to the processRevertGoAbortLoadAcceptEvaluateFinishedRevertGoAbortLoad NewVersionAcceptEvaluateFinished
  12. 12. 12© ARC Advisory GroupNeed Business and Operations Unification– Business to Planning Normally the integration of disparate informationis largely custom work This is the case when integrating SCM targets tooperations planning Reference standards can eliminate the majority ofthis customization. Specifically: The SCOR model has been accepted as theprimary SCM reference model S95 has been accepted as the primaryOperations Management reference model There is a high correlation between the two This integration will deliver higher Business toPlanning performance
