ProSys’ portfolio includes solutions that aim to help operators manage alarms critical to plant production and safety, and handle changing plant states.
“Adding ProSys’ differentiated technologies and expertise allows us to help our customers improve plant performance, safety and profitability by optimizing their human and automation resources,” said Mike Train, executive president, Emerson Automation Solutions. “With ProSys, we can provide innovative control and operator performance capabilities to make control room operators far more effective.”
ProSys complements Emerson’s May 2017 acquisition of MYNAH Technologies, which provides simulation and operator training software. Together, these technologies embed “expertise to help operators navigate plant systems safely and efficiently, and prepare customers to accommodate the changing state and age of the industrial workforce,” describes the company.
“Our specialization in software and services that increase operator performance builds on Emerson’s market leadership in automation control systems,” said Dustin Beebe, president and CEO at ProSys. He will join Emerson Automation Solutions as vice president, control and operator performance. “By working together as one, we can provide even more operational and financial value to customers.”
