Selected Research Highlights


5/5 Stars

How our organization benefits from Schneider Electric OTS technology:

We have trained operators and they have gone on to be successful operators because of the training they had on the OTS system.

Are you satisfied with Schneider Electric support and maintenance?

They fix problems with the OTS system whenever we have had any problems.

Case Study: Global 500 Energy & Utilities Company

Introduction

This case study of a Global 500 energy & utilities company is based on a March 2014 survey of Invensys SimSci optimization software customers by TechValidate, a 3rd-party research service. The profiled company asked to have their name blinded to protect their confidentiality.

“RTO provides external targets to APC system instead of having a plant operator decide on optimum set points.”
