White Paper: The “Lego Principle”: Modular Automation Adds Process Flexibility and Profitability

The design and engineering of traditional process plants is geared to low mix/high volume production.

However, new markets demand exactly the opposite: smaller batch and continuous flow processing of more and more differentiated products. This need for greater customization in products demands a new approach from the plants that make them.

The solution is modular automation, which offers flexibility through the consistent modularization of a plant by dividing it into functional units. This white paper from FESTO covers a case study example of modular automation of a water filtration plant, including:
  • New, effective techniques for process management
  • Numbering up instead of scaling up by adding identical modules
  • Advantages of modularization
