Automation Contracting

Emerson has extensive experience working with and complementing the services of Engineering Procurement and Construction (EPC) lump sum contractors. We work as either a subcontractor or under one of our flexible commercial and contracting strategies, most notably our Main Automation Contractor (MAC) Program.

Over many projects, our MAC program has shown to provide lower project risk, lower project costs and timing, quicker time to profitability, increased profit, and superior plant manageability after project startup over traditional project approaches.

In a MAC relationship, Emerson strives for a high level of partnership within the project team including the client and general EPC. 
  • Responsibility matrices help the project teams define a clear responsibilities matrix
  • Early involvement reduces rework later in the project
  • Change orders are minimized throughout the project by ensuring key decisions are made early in the project related to tradeoffs in technology, purchase cost, installed costs, and total life cycle costs.

As technology continues to evolve and improve more rapidly, leveraging the strengths of a company whose core business competency is automation ensures that these early decisions are made with the latest possible options in mind.

Additionally, involvement as part of the MAC can allow us to prepare personnel to optimize commissioning time and costs leveraging tools developed by Emerson. This is especially true when trying to get the full installed cost advantages of Plantweb® digital technology.
