Global Process Automation, Inc. began in 1996 as a process control company specializing in the configuration of Distributed Control Systems (DCS), Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC), and Human/Machine Interfaces (HMI).
The need for industries to examine their process data in order to operate more efficiently directed us into the utilization and configuration of historical data software, including an industry leader of OSISoft’s Plant Information (PI) system. By using historical data, we have expanded our focus to include custom reporting applications in various formats and development of production reports in continuous and batch industries. GPA also creates automated compliance assistance tools to reduce the burden of ever-increasing regulatory reporting demands.
Since then, the need for process optimization, energy analysis and optimization, and production cost analysis has led GPA to expand our business into process modeling and simulation solutions using state of the art tools and technologies.
What We Do
GPA can design, configure, install, commission, and maintain a complete control system and/or plant-wide data historian. Of course, we offer training on the utilization and maintenance of the systems we install. We can provide complete system checkouts, control system testing and process optimization. Once your system is in place, we can turn your plant data into information in the form of reports, trends, and graphics tailored to suit your needs.
