Automation at DV Group

 Industrial Automation Project – from design to integration

 

Whether a process retrofit or a new works project, our structured “project” organisation involves several phases that are each subject to a validation milestone:

 

  • Project launch and organisational phase
  • Functional specifications phase
  • Design and programming phase
  • Platform test phase
  • On-site integration phase
  • Commissioning phase

 

At the start of the project, we first define the organisation that is both necessary and sufficient to meet the requirements of the project. After this, a project manager is appointed to act as your preferred contact dealing with both technical and a commercial aspects. This manager shall ensure that the project is carried out in accordance with the technical, time, quality and budgetary objectives. He/she will be responsible for the progress of the project, managing any modifications if necessary and will remain at your disposal for any problems during the course of the project.
