• Depending on the short life cycle of the component, the introduction of computer technologies such as computers and network devices makes each component of an automation system smaller, smarter and more diverse. However, the lifecycle is getting shorter and software updates are happening more frequently. Yokogawa Europe and SICK Maihak have signed a mutual distribution agreement covering products in the field of analytical process instrumentation. At ACHEMA 2009, the two companies announced that this collaboration will strengthen their respective positions in the international process industry market, as the product portfolios of the two companies largely complement each other. An open/integrated system with components with short life cycles requires reliable security measures. Yokogawa`s Sustainable Plan Lifecycle Agreement offers a wide range of maintenance services based on our long-term maintenance plan, which we call the Life Cycle Plan. This maintenance plan offers more than just security. It offers tangible security benefits for your assets. We need a partner who can implement “one-stop-shop” maintenance based on an appropriate level of service over the entire lifecycle of an installation. With CCC and Yokogawa by your side, you get benefits that go far beyond your current limits.

Take advantage of both companies` global presence and project execution capabilities while enjoying continuous validation, support for new software releases, long-term lifecycle support, and access to more than 150 CCC experts worldwide. Yokogawa not only designs an optimal lifecycle plan for the customer`s control systems, but monitors, implements and redesigns throughout the life cycle. This range of products supports them throughout the plant`s life cycle – from installation to maintenance – to support the development of industries as diverse as oil, petrochemicals, iron and steel, pulp and paper, pharmaceuticals, food and power. Yokogawa Europe, based in Amersfoort, the Netherlands, is the European headquarters of Japan`s Yokogawa Electric Corporation. Lifecycle Planning Service A Lifecycle Planning Service is an overview of the lifecycle and maintenance history of each component. It also includes estimated life-cycle costs for maintenance. If you`re familiar with CCC Pro Built platforms™, you`ve probably interacted with our advanced HMI display applications. With CCC Inside™, our HMI libraries have been rebuilt for Yokogawa`s HIS displays to give you visibility into the performance of your turbomachinery controller. Preventive maintenance based on the life cycle plan can more than halve potential outages and destructive cyberattacks. As a result, stable and long-term operation can be achieved at optimal costs. Yokogawa`s lifecycle plan is highly flexible, taking into account system priority, downtime schedules, installation environment and customer budget, providing a combination of optimal services.

Founded in 1915, Yokogawa Electric Corporation has more than 90 years of experience in the measurement, control and information industry and provides state-of-the-art products and services. As a leader in industrial automation and control, the Group offers a full range of solutions, including field instruments. These include differential pressure transmitters, flow meters and analyzers, as well as a variety of software tools and integrated production control systems. If a control system suddenly breaks down or shuts down due to a cyberattack, it can lead to plant shutdown, unexpected costs, or significant financial losses. Of course, customers want to predict how reasonable maintenance costs would prevent such failures with various visual aids, but the relationship between cost and availability is unclear. Customers need a maintenance plan that can effectively maintain a balance between reliability and minimum total cost of ownership. CCC Inside™ includes the same commissioning tools that our experts have used in 14,000 installations worldwide. Use engineering utilities such as CCC Configurator and CCC Fast Recorder to optimize your turbomachinery controls and record events reliably. • Continuous plant operation Factory automation systems require a high availability environment to operate continuously 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

Many plant processing units today require increasingly long-term operation without having to be shut down for maintenance. .
