Automation, in the context that involves us, is a tool that is part of the development of processes. But automating part or all processes doesn’t mean that it improves.
Automation brings with it a lot of advantages, for instance:
Because, of course, nobody invests in automation just for spend money… Would you?
Behind every automation decision, a project is needed; and with few exceptions, any step to process automation without a previous study is destined to a significant expenditure of time, money and a failure.
The suppliers of equipment for the automation of processes and the commercial of the distributors, are great professionals in the matter. And without a doubt, they will guide you so that you can make a wise decision.
However, the offer is a lot; and conducting a prior study of such an important decision can save you a lot of trouble, time and money.
Even if you have the situation where you have on the table a variety of equipment that fit the profile of the instrumentation you are looking for, many doubts can arise.
Which is the best?
maybe the most expensive because is more expensive?
The cheapest because I save more money when I buy it?
The most robust or the most versatile?
The one of the best-known brand?…
Neither price, nor speed, nor capabilities nor less fame should be the features when making a purchase decision. It is the objectives of the automation project that will weigh in the decision making.
Sometimes, the project simply cannot be executed.
But it is much more advantageous to carry out a study where the conclusion is that the project is not possible than a significant outlay of money for nothing.
