Traditionally EPCs work with multiple vendors to install process skids to save time and cost. This development however created a new set of challenges for oil and gas companies to overcome, including:
- Integration challenges with systems from various vendors
- Data silos or islands of automation
- Operation/maintenance inconsistencies
To help combat these challenges, oil and gas companies seek a single contractor to centralize project management for all control systems, including those coming from OEMs. This single point of responsibility, the MAC, can also help integrate process skids. Join speaker Simon McEntee from Rockwell Automation to learn about the benefits of using a MAC for OEM coordination.
