A lot has changed for the better over the years. But what about women working in traditionally male-dominated fields like the process industry? Has their situation really changed as radically as we imagine? And how have the changes impacted on Yokogawa?

PAT-Demonstrator – NOA is the ideal partner

Where NOA comes into play: If process analysis technology delivers more and more complex data and experience sometimes requires changes, then we need an additional piece of intelligence. This is not properly stored in the analyzer. Because the type of intelligence is also determined by the process. In the control system, the additional data becomes tight; changes are possible there, but not necessarily popular. A separate software, for example in the form of an app, frees us from these restrictions and gives us the necessary flexibility for specific adaptations.

Hand in hand with the process data

Alarm! Is there now a hectic rush at the control station? Or does the operator lean back and relax, press a button to acknowledge the alarm and continue to sip the coffee he bought a minute ago?
Both are possible, both are interesting information – usually when it comes to alarm management for the analysis and reduction of alarms according to EEMUA 191, for example. But even at the beginning of a data analysis, a look at this data makes sense.

CI – what is it actually? (Part 2)

Critical infrastructures (CI) are organizations or institutions that are important to the state community and whose failure or disruption would result in supply bottlenecks with a lasting effect, major disruptions to public safety or other dramatic consequences: After all, we are all, without exception, dependent on electricity coming out of the socket, our drinking water flowing out of the tap, IT and the transport network functioning – keywords: lifelines of our society.

But – and here lies one of the decisive similarities with Plant Security – with the help of modern security technology and sensitive, forward-looking behaviour, this danger can be greatly minimised.
