Thousands of Pages—Gone!

Thousands of Pages—Gone!

Digital Workflow & Testing With ProofCheck™
Bayer’s Kansas City Crop Science Plant was performing checks on 1160 interlock actions annually in the control system—from 696 sensors and 831 actors. This was a labor-intensive process consuming significant time, energy, and lost production!

Bayer turned to Experitec and Vantage Point, with the goals of:

  • Reducing test time without compromising safety
  • ​Adopting a repeatable, reliable solution
  • Automating records
  • Digitizing the validation process, wherever possible
Bayer's Results
  • 80% reduction in the time needed to perform interlock checks!
  • 600-page individual field device testing document – Gone!
  • 150 multi-tab Excel sheets for SIF/PIF functional testing – Gone!
  • Thousands of pages—now electronic—are available on the tablet when needed for reference, including: instrument specification sheets, PHA documents, SIF requirements/SIL certifications, device manuals, and loop sheets
