Surveys - Quality, Reliability, ATEX & SIL (Safety Integrity Level) Analysis
A thorough understanding of process equipment and control systems enables us to bring the necessary insight to a risk assessment and hazard identification process for automated machinery whether evaluating risk to quality, reliability or personnel. Either at the design stage or evaluating what needs to be done on existing plant, FCS expertise can help you keep your people, products and assets safe and avoid needless incidents.
Pre Study – Project Viability & Justification
Obtaining financial approval is always a critical issue. As well as solving the original issue the addition of automation often brings additional benefits. We can assist through FEED (Front End Engineering Design) studies with identifying and financially quantifying potential energy efficiency, flexibility, maintenance, manning, output, quality, safety, and other benefits available from an automation project, thereby ensuring our customers develop the optimum specification.
We welcome the challenge to find your solution. The needs and requirements are interpreted as a set of problems to solve using a process of fact, data, research and testing to deliver a final concept. The result is a design that offers key functions and required behaviours.
Expert Witness / Accident Investigation
Unfortunately, things go wrong, sometimes tragically. Afterwards a thorough and independent forensic investigation may be required to identify the true route cause of the problem, so that appropriate actions are taken to ensure it will not be repeated. Finesse Control Systems extensive experience & highly qualified engineering team have the knowledge to analyse both the software and hardware of automated machine processes and systems, including safety certified controls, providing the expertise and balance to give a truly independent assessment.
