Summary and Info
This book and CD-ROM combination provides in-depth coverage of the design process, the elements of a successful project, the specific issues to address in a well-designed instrumentation and control (I&C) system, and the engineering products that enable practical design and successful maintenance.Whether you're designing a new instrumentation and control (I&C) system, or migrating an existing control system along an upgrade path, you need to have a well-conceived design package - the engineering deliverables and the design process that creates them. This book draws on 25 years of design engineering experience from the author to provide you with a roadmap to understanding the design process, the elements of a successful project, the specific issues to address in a well-designed I&C system, and the engineering products that enable practical design and successful maintenance. As nearly $65 billion worth of automation systems near the end of their traditional life cycle, the necessity of understanding the design process has never been more critical to engineers, technicians, and management - this book will help you achieve that understanding.The CD-ROM contains Microsoft Excel files for use in designing a project as well as approximately 200 figures, charts, and forms presented in the book for use as training or presentation aids. An Adobe Acrobat document walks you through a sample project and builds a project estimate, schedule, and manpower loading plan. Included is an Excel workbook that calculates a number of deliverables based on item quantities, applies certain labor factors, and develops a budgetary cost and schedule to present to the customer.
