Mission critical!

A new book has been published that highlights the increasing industry importance of and growing career opportunities in mission-critical operations fields.

The term “mission critical” applies to any activity, system or equipment—generally within the 16 critical infrastructure sectors—whose failure could result in serious consequences, such as loss of life, harm to the environment or significant financial loss through production impact or plant damage.

Mission-Critical Operations Primer by Steve Mustard, an independent automation consultant and a globally recognized expert in critical infrastructure operations, defines the essential components and concepts of mission-critical operations, and explores the influence and role of:

  • Standards and regulations
  • System and network technologies
  • Operational activities and processes
  • Safety and physical security considerations
  • Risk management methodologies
  • Emergency response preparation and execution

“In writing this book, I wanted to provide a comprehensive overview of all key aspects of mission-critical operations and provide some guidance for those looking to start a career in mission-critical organizations as an operator or technician,” says Mustard, who serves as a subject-matter expert of ISA and its affiliate association, the Automation Federation. “Mission-critical specialists are needed to address the many risks and challenges in such areas as network design, control system security, control room operations and alarm management.”

Mustard points to the 2015 cyberattack on Ukraine's power grid, which left 225,000 people without electricity for up to six hours, in the depth of winter. Because of failures in network design, security monitoring and incident response, the grid operator was forced to resort to manual operations for months after the event, incurring significant additional costs. More recently, in November 2017, a cyberattack targeted a critical infrastructure organization in the Middle East, resulting in a plant shutdown.

“There’s an acute shortage of suitably qualified and experienced individuals to work in mission-critical systems design and operation,” he reports. “If we are to keep our businesses and our critical infrastructure safe, we will need a new generation of specialists who understand the importance of the phrase ‘failure is not an option.’”

New COO appointment.

The Board of Directors of Schaffner Holding AG has appointed Max Bänziger (50) as Chief Operating Officer (COO) and member of the Executive Committee. He will take up this position on 1st April 2018 at the latest. Max Bänziger replaces Ah Bee Goh (66), who will retire as Vice President Global Manufacturing and COO after more than ten years with the Schaffner Group.

Max Bänziger
The Schaffner Group returned to growth in fiscal year 2016/17 and strongly improved its profitability. Compared to the prior year (PY), order intake rose by 6.5% to CHF 199.5 million (PY: CHF 187.4 million). In the year under review, gross margin improved by 2.8 percentage points to 28.4% (PY: 25.6%) thanks in part to higher volumes, and free cash flow grew to CHF 5.0 million (PY: CHF 2.4 million). As in the prior year, the Group invested CHF 16.7 million in research and development.

All divisions of the Schaffner Group reported increased sales and customer growth. The EMC division increased the number of its new customers worldwide and growth of 4.7% in segment sales. In the fiscal year the power quality business, which is integrated in the EMC division, launched its second generation of passive harmonic filters and expanded its service and sales network. Through advances in operational excellence, EMC was able to somewhat reduce production costs despite higher raw material prices. As a global organization, the EMC division is well-positioned to grow slightly faster than the market in the long term. One area of potential is electromobility. In this space the division already supplies EMC filters to manufacturers of rapid charging stations for electric vehicles.

The Power Magnetics division reported growth of 10.3% to sales of CHF 50.0 million (PY: CHF 45.4 million). As in the previous year, the drive systems business, with solutions for the oil, gas and mining industry, was difficult as a result of the low commodity prices. By contrast, Power Magnetics sees attractive business opportunities in the global rail technology market and in components for rapid charging stations for electric vehicles, as well as in directly supplying OEM manufacturers, particularly in North America.

In fiscal year 2016/17 the sales of the Automotive division increased by 2.2% to CHF 47.4 million (PY: CHF 46.4 million). The division has confirmed its strategic position as the third pillar of the Schaffner Group and more than 90% of the division’s revenue was earned with antennas for use in keyless entry systems for vehicles. In the promising market for filters for electromobility, the Automotive division is working on multiple projects and it expects that, in two to three years, the electric vehicle market will provide a growing share of the division’s sales.

Planning for water & waste!

Krohne has renewed the “Planning Tool for generation of tender documents for industrial process measurement”. The free online tool for easy compilation of tender documents for process instrumentation now features a new user interface for fast and easy navigation.

Planning engineers for water or wastewater plants and systems face a very complex task as they have to align changing requirements with new technological developments and resulting possibilities. In terms of process instrumentation, the planner needs to be familiar not only with the most important technologies, but must know about the advantages and disadvantages of all measuring methods that can be applied to a certain measuring point. Given the wealth of alternatives, many planners find it difficult to choose a particular meter.

Here, the company offers the the renewed “Planning Tool for generation of tender documents for industrial process measurement”: visually grouped into typical processes such as water abstraction, water treatment, public sewage network or sludge treatment, it comprises process instrumentation for typical measuring points. Thereby, it provides full planning security as all presented devices are available. It also includes various desalination technologies, which is of particular interest to planners who work on international water supply projects.

After selecting a measuring point, tender texts, data sheets, operating instructions and CAD drawings can be quickly created and saved. A download of the tender texts is possible as a Word, Excel or GAEB file. Device-specific downloads, datasheets, manuals and short-form descriptions can be accessed. 2D and 3D CAD drawings are available in DWG, IGES, SAT, STEP and SLDPRT formats as well as calculation software.

The Planning Tool is web-based thus local installation is not required.
