Our project managers and engineers work with your experts to ensure a control system that is a perfect fit for your manufacturing needs.

Step One

Process Mapping

Process Mapping identifies opportunities for the customer to reduce key cost structures such as materials, energy, human resources, and maintenance. Mapping results are summarized in a Gap Analysis detailing instrumentation, control strategy changes, control systems, and other factors that would be transformative to the customer to improve process quality and profitability.


Step Two

Project Design

Creation of a Functional Design Specification (FDS) defines all project requirements and scope. The document will include control system hardware & structure, system functions, software configuration, and other important design features.


Step Three


Network design, hardware engineering, software engineering, and system assembly are all part of project execution. ACSI engineers are assigned to follow the project from concept to commissioning.

Step Four

Testing & Simulation

Our Factory Acceptance Test (FAT) includes a complete simulation of all system functions allowing the customer to run the entire process “virtually.” Simulation guarantees customer expectations are met and a successful startup.


Step Five

Implementation and Results

Installation, I/O checkout, training, and field acceptance are all part of our implementation process. Metrics identified in process mapping are compared to end results to ensure the project meets expectations.


Step Six
