Dr. Yahya Nazer will present a complimentary 90-minute webinar focused on the implementation of ISA106, a set of standards covering procedures for automating continuous process applications.

An expert in design and implementation of process automation, Dr. Nazer will discuss topics such as the implementation of startup, shutdown, abnormal situations, hold states, and transition logic; modularization of procedural steps; process unit orientation with operational perspective; and alarm enablement.

Plus, you’ll learn:

  • How to implement ISA106 principles for a set of unit operations that commonly occur in a chemical plant, such as reactor and distillation operations
  • How to design and develop a Plant Control Strategy for User Requirement Specification (URS), Functional Requirement Specification (FRS), and Detail Design Specification (DDS)
