Cement Manufacturing

Designed, developed and commissioned the control system for two Cemex owned cement manufacturing plants in the US.  The systems were based on distributed Allen Bradley PLCs and a redundant iFix SCADA architecture.  Developed PICS software based PLC I/O simulation to simulate the entire plant behaviour prior to onsite commissioning.  Developed a tool to populate the PLC, SCADA and simulation databases and much of the PLC logic.  Used same tool to populate motor schematics and loop sheets.  In parallel I developed the company’s corporate automation standards.
