Houston, Texas, USA — May 15, 2013 — PAS, a human reliability software solutions provider, announced that TuneWizard™, a control loop optimization software, is now available for free download and use. With TuneWizard, plant facilities in the power and process automation industries can tune their control loops to ensure they are performing as they should without any cost.
“Our TuneWizard software allows for organizations to effectively manage and optimize their PID control loops,” said Mark Carrigan, Vice President of Solutions at PAS, “they are the first line of defense in rejecting process disturbances and we believe that it should not be reserved for companies that can afford it.”
By utilizing the TuneWizard, plant facilities can identify the origins of poor control loop performance and facilitate how to remediate them.
