Thursday, November 19, 2020 to Thursday, November 19, 2020

Michael von Grumbkow and David Zerr present: The startling fact is that over 50% of all Advanced Process Controls get turned off within 24-months! It’s the elephant in the room that no one wants to talk about. If you are a supplier, engineer or project manager, who wants to discuss that their multi-million-dollar APC project was turned off? Intent of this webinar is to bring attention to this challenge and offer solutions to ensure your APCs stay operational for many years.
