MIGRATION

Agile uses a procedure to reduce downtime and the risk.  It's possible to have downtime on a major system minimized to less than a day. The big advantage is that we program in a development area and use smart simulated logic to mimic field variables like temperature, levels, pressures, valves and motors.

You should be looking into migration if:

  • Hardware is discontinued

  • Operating system security issues

  • Lack of support 

  • Limited flexibility for additional functionality

  • Yearly SCADA subscription costs​​

PLC Migration
PLC5 and SCL500 PLC hardware has already reached the end of it's shelf life. This switch can be painful if it's not carefully planned out. 
SCADA Migration
  • Setup the touch screen a few feet apart from the old system

  • Spent weeks with our simulated system, test driving it, confirming it's procedures and logic 

  • Switch from old to new and back in a matter of minutes if large issues are found. 

Migration Steps To Reduce Down Time:

  • ​Creating project scope

  • Convert the code

  • Add standard code

  • Add hardware and process code

  • Add simulation code

  • Development testing

  • Add PLC and HMI to the plant

  • Operator training and bug finding

  • Software testing with old hardware

  • New hardware switch-over planning

  • Hardware switch-over

  • Hardware and software testing

  • Small bug finding

Items in Red are downtime
