Operational Certainty is an engineering-based program rich promises to help companies achieve top quartile performance – defined as achieving operations and capital performance in the top 25 percent of peer companies. The new Langenfeld office provides Emerson customers with access to a range of testing, training and demonstration facilities, giving them first-hand experience of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) technology that can improve their operational performance and put them on the path to achieving top quartile status.
The same office’s education and training facilities promise to enable customers to gain experience with Emerson’s control and safety systems and measurement and control devices, showing them how this technology can help them run their operations more safely, reliably and efficiently. A demonstration center enables customers to explore new ways of managing remote operations and enabling easier collaboration with experts located anywhere in the world, and allows customers to observe aspects of Emerson’s Plantweb™ digital ecosystem – a scalable portfolio of hardware, software, intelligent devices and services, which provides the technology foundation for companies to securely implement IIoT applications. The facility also includes a dedicated area for performing factory acceptance testing of control and safety systems.
The new 5500m2 office will host around 270 employees. Its opening complements the existing facilities at Hasselroth, Wessling, Gronau, Selmsdorf, Willich, Dietzenbach and Ölbronn-Dürr.
