Control in the field enhances process performance: ARC

A new whitepaper from ARC Advisory Group describes the benefits processing companies can receive from using control in the field (CIF) with Foundation fieldbus communication technology.

According to ARC, CIF strategies supported by Foundation technology improve process control performance by allowing for superior reaction to deterministic disturbances in industrial plant operations.

In the white paper, titled The Business Value Proposition of Control in the Field, ARC describes the incorporation of a function block structure and other supporting functions in Foundation fieldbus providing a complete automation infrastructure for operational excellence.

Embedded control functionality in Foundation devices is one of the key enablers for achieving high availability control and a stepping-stone towards single-loop integrity, said the whitepaper.
