ECS/ProcessExpert v8 - Daily Use and Maintenance

training Image
  • Make sure your FLSmidth ECS/ProcessExpert system is working to maximize plant process stability and productivity.
  • Based on state-of-the-art process optimization and artificial intelligence technologies, ECS/ProcessExpert v8 is FLSmidth’s software solution to improving plant operational stability, productivity, and sustainability.
  • This course provides the necessary information to plant engineers to become familiar with, use, and maintain the ECS/ProcessExpert v8 system.Understand the principles behind an expert control system, be able to carry out routine maintenance tasks, and make basic changes as necessary to optimize your system process and operation.
  • Training for this course includes training on simulated virtual machines such that participants will actively use and practice on a system that looks and works like the actual ProcessExpert v8 platform.
  • (The online short course version is an abbreviated training of the full 40- hour PXP in-person workshop seminar.)
