  • Making Paper Better: Innovations In Plant-Wide Monitoring, Diagnostics & Optimization

Here’s the problem: The typical paper mill operates 100s of PID control loops and maintains
an even larger quantity of production assets. The typical plant historian stockpiles data, and
extracting information that’s actionable and relevant to performance can be a challenge.
Meanwhile, pressure just increased on everyone to improve production efficiency.


Control loop performance monitoring (CLPM) solutions leverage the information stored in a
production facility’s data historian. They actively evaluate PID control loops on a plant-wide
basis and identify issues that undermine production performance and that can eventually
lead to shut-down. Some CLPM solutions also isolate root-causes and recommend situations and appropriate corrective actions.

As a Certified Systems Integrator for Control Station applications, Avid empowers its Pulp and Paper process experts to use tools described in this article to deliver sustained value for our clients.
