Enterprise Ireland and Lean Manufacturing Program Promote Continuous Process Improvement

Manchester, CT – April 26, 2017 – Control Station has been recognized by Enterprise Ireland for delivering consistent and measurable improvements in the efficiency of process manufacturers.  The company is now among a select group of solution providers enrolled in the Irish agency’s Lean Business Offer program.  Participation in the program is expected to facilitate deployments of the company’s award-winning diagnostic and optimization technologies throughout Ireland.

The mission of Enterprise Ireland is to strengthen the country’s industrial competitiveness through programs that foster the use of lean manufacturing methods and technologies.  Since the agency’s restructuring in 1988 it has assisted with the growth of Irish manufacturing across key sectors including Biotech & Pharmaceuticals, Food & Beverage, Oil & Gas, and Semiconductors.  For the period of 2017-2020 Enterprise Ireland seeks to increase the countries annual exports from 5 Billion to 26 Billion Euros while adding over 60,000 new domestic jobs.  The agency features the Lean Business Offer and other programs to provide Irish manufactures with incentives for accelerating their implementation of lean solutions.

“There is meaningful alignment between Enterprise Ireland’s goals and Control Station’s capabilities,” shared Damien Munroe, General Manager of Control Station Limited based in Roscrea, Ireland.  “Our solutions proactively identify issues that negatively affect production efficiency.  By assisting Irish manufacturers with the adoption of solutions like PlantESP the Lean Business Offer program promotes competitive advantage through continuous process improvement.”

As a platform known for its intuitive design PlantESP actively monitors and diagnoses the core PID control systems that regulate production.  PlantESP proactively evaluates PID performance and provides the essential insights required for enacting lean improvements.  With its data-driven assessments PlantESP has facilitated progressive gains in production from increases in quality and throughput to decreases in energy consumption and unplanned downtime.  Control Station will provide lean solutions that support the advancement of lean practices from basic thru advanced, including:

  • LeanStart: Introduce Lean principles and processes in order to achieve cost reductions;
