IT-Security, Energy Efficiency and Process Lifecycle Management in the European Process Industries

The Process Management Academy (PMA) 2011 is the seventh in a series of highly educational events hosted by ARC Advisory Group. The event is designed for executives and automation professionals from the European process industries. Focusing on Operational Excellence in safety and sustainability, PMA 2011 will address pressing key-topics:

•    Excellence in Process Safety
•    Green and Profitable Solutions
•    Process Lifecycle Management

Hear about process plant solutions, their real value and implications. Network with peers from across Europe and take home new ideas to vitalize your company’s success.

Objective of 100% Safe Operations & Energy Efficiency
PMA will address how to implement behavioral, organizational, and technical aspects of process safety with the objective of 100% safe operations. This includes the safety of workers, clients, and patients, which is indirectly related to process safety. In addition to safety aspects, the PMA will also deal with quick and cost effective solutions for improving energy efficiency and carbon footprint by reducing consumption of fossil fuels and other utilities.
