Project Management

Optima’s Project management is one of our strongest attributes. Upgrading machines is a complicated business and is seen to carry a high degree of risk; and it’s no wonder. Taking a key production machine out of service, completely changing the control system for a new, bespoke system with modern technology, often with mechanical modifications too, then putting it back into production within a fixed downtime period is risky. We have a 100% success rate…

Optima Control Solutions Ltd. have carried out many hundreds of control system upgrades since 1995, in numerous sectors and with values ranging from low £1,000’s to over £500,000.

Our success in this field is no co-incidence. When customers engage Optima they employ a professional company who’s aim is to deliver our engineering expertise working as an integral part of our customers’ project teams. Technical expertise and a will to succeed achieve maximum effect when combined with competent and pragmatic project management.

Mutual professional respect is essential when co-ordinating, directing and handling sub-contractors. Good working partnerships rely on all parties having appropriate competence, industrial experience and budget and timescale focus. This recognition and careful selection of suppliers accounts for our achievements and our exemplary customer retention record.

All the support you need… when you need it

Here at Optima we are always looking at ways at which we can better support our customers. If the problem can be identified remotely and and fixed without requiring a visit to site, then there are cost savings to be made, both in terms of engineering time saved and production downtime losses.
Of course, not every problem can be fixed remotely, but if a more detailed prognosis can be made in the first instance, then preparations for any site visit will be more focused on the problem area. Read our Remote Access Brochure for more information.

Cloud Remote Access

Cloud Access

With this remote access system:

  • Our engineers use the same software they would use if they had travelled to the remote site. The customer does not need to purchase the specialist programming tools or laptop
  • The system uses the existing, broadband Internet connection on site, whether wired or wireless
  • If this is not available (for example at a remote operating plant or location) our 4G Mobile Data Sim configuration provides the communication link required. 
  • Depending on network coverage, the most appropriate mobile telephone network provider can be selected. Our range of high-gain antennas ensure that a reliable data link is always available
  • The system can be configured to send e-mail notifications, when machine faults / alerts occur

We would be pleased to provide you with a custom quotation for your remote access requirements.
