    DCS Application Services

    Modernization of DCS libraries – for a future-proof management system

    In addition to upgrading the overall system, modernization of system libraries is crucial to ensuring high plant availability and full exploitation of the potential of the system.

    DCS Application Services offers comprehensive support for the updating of your existing DCS libraries to Advanced Process Library (APL). With the APL-based individual control level, you create a basis for your current and future DCS innovations.


    DCS Library Services module

    • Standardized procedure for quick and reliable implementation with a short test phase

    • The original technological functions of engineering are retained and the new functions can be used simultaneously

    • A variety of service packages guarantees optimum customer-specific implementation

    • Specialized experts with the appropriate technological know-how process your inquiries

    Your benefits from the applications


    In order to ensure long-term plant availability, the modernization of PCS 7 project data at regular intervals is of enormous importance.

    In addition to upgrading the system and further standardization, library exchange is an important component of successful modernization. DCS Application Services offers you an ideal procedure for this purpose.

    Systematic plant optimization (standardized & customer-specific)

    With the standardized procedure you have the choice between defined service packages at a fixed price and project-specific implementation of AS and OS configurations.

    Standardized packages can be flexibly extended to meet project-specific requirements. The preceding analysis enables reliable calculation and, at the same time, a reduction of risks when exchanging libraries.

    Professional service concept

    The library exchange is carried out centrally and serves to ensure a high quality of service. Your requirements are thus identified and channeled in good time. We ensure fast and reliable modernization through the use of software-based implementation tools.

    Ideally, the Library Service is performed simultaneously with a PCS 7 upgrade. We offer you ideal conditions with first-class resources and further lifecycle service options.
