Industrial IT transformation management

A master plan is not haughty vision of a future situation that will be meaningless to maturity in a techno-economic context that does not obey a voluntary projection. A true permanent process of transformation can offer the level of service and responsiveness necessary for effective support of the industrial system.
Industrial IT master plan
Steering the establishment of a global transformation blueprint led with 3 other CCG consultants integrating functional, technology, security, organizational and economic aspects.
In charge of the transformation  process and economic evaluation.

Support to MES transformation
Definition and alignment of business / functional / technical targets
Specification of the MES transformation process.

Support to MES transformation
Awareness to structural transformation, impact on documentation structure.
 

Research
Development of a model of industrial IT transformation management taking into account modeling, planning and implementation of technological, functional, and topological dimensions.

Performance management

The performance measurement must fit into a wider behavioral change framework directed to the common benefit of the company.
Performance of CSP superheated steam generators
These indicators assess the operating performance reflecting the ability to take advantage of the sunshine (start time up to temperature time, efficiency energy transformation ...) and performance monitoring in terms of stability and respect of equipment constraints. On this basis, highlighting the shortcomings of the control strategy and recommendations to achieve the performance objectives within the limits of mechanical design.

 
Transformational performance
Transformation performance management of R&D experimentation IT through an organizational model integrating the provider in enterprise R&D IT.

Research
Development of a cybernetic model of performance interactional management. 

Intelligence of industrial systems

Technology is merely one tangible aspect of information whose ultimate  nature is revealed through many concepts : facts, data, meaning, knowledge, psychology, culture, conscience, interactions, communication, processing, intelligence, wisdom...
This fledgling research area offers new opportunities for the management of industrial performance. 
Research and academic lecture
Study of the application of physical and social sciences in industrial enterprise system.
Lecture for SY20 "Industrial Intelligence" at the University of Technology of Troyes (UTT)
Human resource development
Foundation and management of a professional training company covering industrial systems control and management.

ISA-88, ISA-95 ISA-106 and B2MML

Only active French member in these standardization committees: interaction within a community of experts, constructive criticism, respecting existing practices, no dogma.
Expertise

Participation in the workshops of the working group and drafting of the guide

Training
Authorized ISA trainer for ISA-88 and ISA-95 courses
Development of ISA-88 and ISA-95 training courses performance through ISA France, ISA Belgium and ISA Russia

MES / MOM

Manufacturing execution control benefits of dedicated software offer and a consensus standard, ISA-95 since two decades. Apparently mature, this area remains delicate because of functional redundancy between control systems and  ERP and the lack of organizational articulation of projects based on solutions. 
Feasibility study and supplier selection for a global MES project
Expertise to replace homegrown applications by MES market application.
Definition of selection criteria, framing of the economic study and transition plan

 (Papeterie du Souche)
MES functional specifications
Modelling of the production system, functional requirements, and specification of interoperability with ERP

Finite capacity scheduling
Implementation of ORTEMS scheduling application in a painting fabrication workshop

Interoperability

Interoperability directly impacts the evolutionary ability and intellectual development of the industrial system: interactions materialized by the interfaces condition the application autonomy and systemic coupling.
ERP - MES Interfaces 
Specification of manufacturing information exchanges between central SAP and the group factories.
On this occasion, development of B2MML extension mechanism.

ERP - MES Interfaces 
In a more modest context, the canonical approach ISA-95 / B2MML was proved to be hardly workable. This situation provided an opportunity to develop a meta-model to take advantage of the underlaying concepts without the need to transpose existing languages. The exchange specifications could then be carried out very quickly and easily.

Standardisation of XML manufacturing information exchanges
Contribution to B2MML development committees for MES / MOM interoperability.
Development of an alternative XML schema specification B2MML offering much more flexibility with 10 times less code.

Process control and instrumentation

Leverage natural stability attractors of processes for designing "lean" robust and effective control strategies
Instrument supervisor
Planning and coordination of instrument mouting for a steamcracker facility 
  (ex-Fives Cail Babcock)
Control optimization of fluidized bed furnace "Ignifluid"
Process modeling and initial design of control. Redesign and simplification during commissioning with radically improved startup and responsiveness of the boiler, robustness of combustion against large variability in the fuel quality and mix (coal or lignite, oil or gas, sugarcane pith).
35 years ago, using vintage pneumatic and electromechanical control technology!

Optical fiber drawing control Optimization
Simplification and change of the control paradigm greatly improving process stability.

Optimization of extrusion temperature control
Reduction by more than 50% of the energy consumption 

Automation

Inspired by ISA-88 (but not only), control engineer is at the service of the equipment, the process and the operator.
Supervision of the functional specification automation of a flexible multi-product workshop
The work was successfully conducted by operators using the ISA-88 basis design and applying Delta Nodes modeling rules.

 (Consortium COSAG)
Interoperable automation
Lead of the consortium work
Deterministic modeling specification based on the ISA-88 and formal flow management applicable to applications from different integrators without questioning their expertise.
This base has allowed to define concepts and methods for interoperability between automation applications of these integrators (eg command of a silo operating under a storage application from a formulation application).

Rapid automation modular design
Ultra fast development of  N2, H2 and O2 in-situ PSA/VSA production units thanks to "Olympus" AutoCAD/AutoLisp application for pre ISA-88 modular design, extensive formal documentation and database structuration
