Modernization & Migration Services for Project Justification

Many plants face outdated legacy process automation assets and need to consider modernization. But defining the economic benefits of modernization and developing a compelling business justification can be difficult.  Emerson’s consultants can perform a Modernization Study to analyze and define how innovative automation solutions can impact specific plant economics and provide a ROI project justification.  To help achieve this, our consultants draw from the best technologies and services to architect automation solutions that meet your needs.  Studies are conducted by senior consultants with in-depth industry and process automation expertise and extensive modernization experience.  Emerson's consultants are familiar with both Non-Emerson and Emerson systems and have native technical and operational understanding of a variety of legacy systems and migration options. 

Modernization Studies can also be used to establish a preliminary automation modernization plan including scope of work and functional specifications.  Budget quality Total Installed and Commission Cost estimates are prepared to assist you with capital budgeting activities.  Modernization Studies provide a well defined starting point for a project Front End Engineering Design (FEED).
