Richard Automation, Inc.

Information Management and Security

To sustain growth and commercial viability, plant operations need information management systems with enhanced decision support capabilities to facilitate global design, production and life cycle optimization. Today's challenge is sustainability in the market. This means:

  • 1. Operational efficiency is critical and to achieve this, a manufacturer must gain control over the very valuable process information asset in order to optimize the product's manufacture.

  • 2. The manufacturer must capture and analyze the necessary information to build and operate a plant in record time. This contributes to reduced time-to-market and an optimized supply chain.

Richard Automation's information management team is experienced with the best-in-class information management systems and software. Our goal is to maximize industrial and manufacturing plant operating and maintenance efficiency from concept and design through plant maintenance, operations and decommissioning. RAI's experienced information management team specializes in integrating information beyond the physical asset, processes and regulatory / safety imperatives.
