- Help selecting suppliers.
- Comparison and advice awarding the contract.
Thanks to our team, specialized in multiple fields, such as process engineering, electricity and instrumentation, control applications (PLC, SCADA, DCS), network industries and operative systems, MES systems, etc., we can apply our business models and expertise from the lowest levels (PLC, peripheries, etc.) to the highest levels where the bits are processed in chart value.
We offer integral global solutions from a “Bottom – Up” approach.
Our turnkey projects usually include:
- Project study
- Project management
- Project development
- On-site assistance
We study the different control systems within the plant according to the different automation layers (PLC/SCADA/MES), the IT infrastructure (computer equipment, operating system, application system, social networks) and the defined requirements between yourself and us.
For each plant, we have presented:
A current report and risk analysis, a detailed vision of the organization with the different control systems (structure, maintenance, programming, internal know-how of the plant, etc.)
Evaluation of various system solutions: Details of the technical advantages and disadvantages – conditions (economical, timings, training)
Designing and conducting of the plan of action for the considered solution.
AG Solution carries out industrial automation maintenance tasks: With the objective of ensuring the correct functioning of your system, we provide different maintenance services for the optimal performance of your plant.
- Preventative maintenance
Corrective maintenance: motivated by the demand of our customers, we offer the SLA service around the clock. This provides the availability of a contactable engineer 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
- Progressive or planned maintenance:
For the purpose of gradually advancing within the pursuit of the ´zero faults´ target for an industrial plant.
At AG Solution we provide our customers with a wide range of training in our areas of expertise. We are regularly examined and are under constant review in order to certify our knowledge in different fields.
With an in-depth level of knowledge and ongoing inspections in obtaining the pertinent certificates (Siemens PCS7, Wonderware, OSISoft, etc.), AG Solution offers different courses to satisfy its clients’ requirements.
We offer a methodology focused on the end user to adopt the installed system to handle the tool without always having the support of an external company.
We believe that the success of this implementation is the involvement and participation of the users.
We will do the adoption of users, users will adopt the system.
User Satisfaction = Quality.
Before starting the Project: We will organize a session (face-to-face or remotely) to highlight the improvements and benefits that the system will bring according to the different departments (production, engineering, quality, etc.).
During the development of the Project: We will optimize the commitment of the employees – to increase the knowledge of the technology.
Upon completion of the Project: Training and documentation in the agreed language (8 native languages spoken at AG Solution).
After the Project: Continuous support and training for new employees, new opportunities, needs, etc.
Some examples of courses we offer on the following modules
- Basic Simatic PCS7 courses
- Advanced Simatic PCS7 courses
- PCS7 maintenance and diagnostics courses
- Basic PI system structure: Data within the PI system/PI Clients (ProcessBook; DataLinK)
- Advanced Level: Architecture of the PI System/Creation of PI Tags/Maintenance/Support/Security and Configuration of the PI System/PI Interfaces.
