Process controls is essential when automating processes. These processes are operating many hours a day, everyday and any small issue can drastically reduce the quality and performance of the process. As a result, the ability to monitor and control a process in real time is very beneficial in discovering issues as early as possible.
Being able to program these controls to take certain actions e.g., when a sensor detects a reading below or above a set limit to is key to ensuring the quality and performance is kept at an acceptable level at all times.
Due to this, process controls plays a big role in determining the efficiency of a process and allows for adjustment of the process to be maximized effectively and efficiently.
