A Proven Process for Satisfied Customers
Our Process Ensures Successful Engagements
At Automated Control & Technical Services (AC&TS), we follow a four-step process that includes discovery, diagnosis, design, and delivery, and is supported throughout development and after implementation with the highest quality service.
Discover: A Consultation Process to Clearly Understand Your Needs
Our goal is to become your manufacturing technology brain trust and expert automation partner – and we start to achieve that by listening. Through a review of your needs, goals, and existing equipment and systems, we understand the manufacturing considerations that differentiate your business, and evaluate the risks and opportunities that lie in front of you.
Diagnose: Discern the Best Solution for Your Challenge
Our proposal process dives deep into your organization with preliminary designs and estimates so that you can visualize the way your business will evolve. Hardware, software, approach, and scope vary from project to project, but our response, reliability, troubleshooting knowledge, and high standards for quality and safety are paramount in each of our applications. Through the diagnostic, we identify:
- Goals and objectives
- Success factors
- Project delivery methodology
- Project documents and directives
- Key milestones
- Approval requirements
- Risk assessment
- Additional plans for quality, safety, communications, change management, and configuration
Design: Complete Solution Execution for Your Exact Application
We work directly with your operations experts to ensure you get the right automation solution for your business, and each solution is customized from development through fabrication, testing, installation, knowledge transfer, and project completion. Our clients are part of factory acceptance testing – to witness the fabricated and programmed system in mock operation at the development facility prior to shipment and installation – and site acceptance testing – to witness the system in full operation at the job site.
We have exclusive access to Rockwell Automation technology and expertise through our RcSI standing, and to Schneider Electric with our Wonderware SI Program affiliation, supporting our role as a trusted national leader in automation technology integration.
Deliver: Results that Drive Your Business Forward
Our teams walk alongside yours, driving results that meet your business goals. With operational training and system documentation, your teams get the comprehensive, hands-on training they need as well as the documentation to support future operation. Ultimately, our efforts result in overhauled production for overall improvement – reliable production processes, technical enhancements, ROI that continues to increase, reduced downtime and shutdown risk – and a long-term partnership for sustainable success through streamlined operations.
Service to Sustain Your Success
Before, during, and after your application, service is our top priority. From troubleshooting and maintenance to upgrades and complete system overhauls, we have responsive teams that can solve your automation challenges. Throughout our work, we hold our safety and quality standards tightly, unwilling to sacrifice either, regardless of project complexity.
