Emerson Exchange is just a few short weeks away and our presence at Exchange will be stronger than ever. As always, we will be demonstrating Mimic Simulation Software and Industrial Ethernet protocols in the Technology Exhibits. However, as this will be our first year attending as part of Emerson, our typical set up has changed. Please note:
In addition to the exhibits, you can learn more about Emerson's Process Simulation program in the following sessions:
Dates & Times:
Monday, Oct 2 - 1:15 pm-2:15pm
Tuesday, Oct 3 - 11:00am-12:00pm
Martin Berutti, Emerson, Vice President, Process Simulation
Sean Sims, Emerson, Vice President, Lifecycle Services
Characterized by a manufacturing process that is often complex while needing to remain flexible, specialty chemicals present unique challenges to automation and process engineers. Unlike commodity chemicals manufactured in a continuous process, batch processes for specialty chemicals are in perpetual startup and shutdown, produce a spectrum of products, and have interrelated batch yield, production, quality, and repeatability. Dow Chemical successfully utilized Mimic simulation in a virtual environment to address operational and engineering difficulties for their batch chemical manufacturing. Tough challenges were encountered from proposal to FAT but all were overcome and incredible results were realized.
Dates & Times:
Tuesday, Oct 3 - 11:00am-11:45am
Wednesday, Oct 4 - 1:30pm-2:15pm

Updating control strategies is a necessity for the changing needs of a control system over the lifecycle of any plant. However, implementing these changes requires testing in an offline test platform prior to commissioning. In support of their multi-product facility in Fremont, CA, Boehringer-Ingelheim moved control system development and commissioning to a virtual platform. Through the use of Mimic Simulation Software and Virtual IO Modules, this platform included an offline, real-time simulation integrated to an unaltered copy of the production system. The use of process simulation allowed for changes to control strategies to be developed and tested without impacting GMP production. Changes are then transferred to the production system for validation with minimal downtime to production.
Dates & Times:
Wednesday, Oct 4 - 10:00am-10:45am
Thursday, Oct 5 - 2:15pm-3:00pm
Christopher Issacs, Boehringer-Ingelheim
