 OVERVIEW  PACKAGE OVERVIEW
This GS provides an overview of the Exapilot It used to require a lot of control system resources
Operation Efficiency Improvement Package. Reducing and engineering work to automate process control
operating costs (increasing profit) is a major issue for system manual operation procedures. And even after
plant operators. To enhance operating efficiency and procedures were established, changes in equipments
increase profit, manual operations — such as startup, and products required expensive maintenance work.
shutdown, load changes and grade changes — need To solve these problems, Exapilot builder functions
to be automated. are designed to make it easy to represent operating
The Exapilot; Operation Efficiency Improvement procedures, so that the maintenance is easy.
Package makes it easy for knowledgeable operators Exapilot builder functions include procedure
to create semi-automatic sequences that replace components such as Pump Start/Stop, Set Valve
manual operation Opening, Ramp Up/Down, Request Field Work, Pause,
Exapilot was developed to be “Easy to Use”, and Wait for Condition.
to “Realize Continuous Improvements in Operating By linking these components on the screen, an
Efficiency”, and it supports the following improvements experienced operator can create a procedure that
in operating efficiency: operates as a semi-automatic sequence. A created
- Reduce operating time while maintaining product sequence can be used as an operating screen.
quality.
- Reduce labor while the plant is running safety.
- Prevent operator errors.
- Standardize operating procedure and operation
methods.
- Ensure that operator know-how is not lost.

Exapilot runs on Windows OS. Using Exaopc (OPC
interface package), Exapilot can communicate with a
process control system (PCS), and access process
data.
