Sequential Process Control
What do you do when you commission a new
- Run around coordinating the efforts of process & controls
engineers to make the sequences match the equipment?
- Install equipment regardless of whether it can be controlled,
hoping the controls engineers will pull it off?
- Make the changes to the system as the installation
proceeds and tell the controls engineers about it all
when they arrive on site to start the plant?
- Tear your hair out seeing all the above going on between
your site teams, wondering what to do about it?
- Use a comprehensive method for communicating, controlling
and tracking process system requirements, change and
Item #5 above describes our solution
When we commission a plant, we use
our unique SequenceMaster™ system.
SequenceMaster™ we can:
- Clearly communicate process control requirements between all project teams.
- Specify exactly the sequential steps required to operate
the system, in clear, graphic detail, understandable by process engineers,
controls engineers, programmers, plant operators, and managers alike.
- Create and update control system schematics automatically from instrument
& I/O lists, reducing design time by at least 50% and allowing field wiring
change releases within minutes of receiving updates to the equipment lists.
- Program the system in less than 50% of the traditional time cycle.
- Field test and debug the system in 10% of the traditional time
Do your processes have change management requirements? Our SequenceMaster™ system can help you with internal and legal regulatory compliance for tracking process changes.

- Make sequencing changes easily & quickly, using
- Secure the system to different access levels, requiring
proper authentication for each level.
- View historical listing of every change made, with
timestamp and user information.
- Compare any current or past sequence with any other,
and generate reports of differences found.
- Assure your plant and regulatory inspectors that
the process is consistent
with current certifications.
