Register now: IICA Victoria Control System Design event

The Institute of Instrumentation Control and Automation’s (IICA) Victorian division will hold a technical evening on Control System Design for Operator Effectiveness on Wednesday 22nd April, with Honeywell providing specialist advice to attendees.

Honeywell Process Solutions principal consultant, Bob Weiss, will speak at the IICA Technical Evening on effective operator responses to deviations in process operation, which he says are critical to plant safety and profitability.

The event will also cover the ways in which designing operator effectiveness into a greenfields plant has proved challenging.

“Focussing on the role of the control room operator, this presentation discusses the elements of operator effectiveness, the barriers to achieving this during the normal design process and a process that overcomes these challenges. Proven processes for improving alarm systems and the Human Machine Interface in existing facilities will also be discussed,” says an IICA notice.

The event’s networking component will run from 6.30pm to 7pm, with the presentations beginning at 7pm.

The evening will be held at RMIT University, Building 56, Level 3, Room 92 (056.03.92). Guests are advised to enter the building (corner of Queensberry and Lygon streets) from the Queensberry Street entrance, then turn left in the foyer and the room is down the hall on the left.

The cost is free for IICA members, and $10 for non-members.
