Aging automation infrastructures can present a number of problems to any organization. Spare parts can become more difficult to find and are often very expensive. Aging equipment can pose security risks or may lack modern capabilities hindering a team from taking full advantage of their infrastructure especially as it relates to data capabilities in more modern platforms. Although the drawbacks of an aging infrastructure are known, the modernization process can often feel overwhelming especially in a regulated environment.
Panacea has crafted a set of dedicated legacy install base modernization services to evaluate, prioritize, plan, and execute modernization plans designed around a client’s unique legacy landscape. Utilizing these services, we have executed migration projects ranging from single controller and HMI projects to a multi-year modernization plan touching 50+ controllers, 70+ HMIs, and dozens of connected servers and data platforms all under change control using a GAMP 5 risk-based approach.
We can also utilize different aspects of our process for standalone engagements such as evaluating a legacy install base and presenting risks, or just the creation of a validation master plan for modernization. Regardless of where you are in your modernization journey, contact us to get connected to our modernization team.
