Automation partner is very important for companies and there are many points to be considered. This partner should be a company that will serve you for years, solve your problems and carry you forward. This partner should not be thought of as simply giving you the cheapest price to meet your current needs.
When choosing a partner, the two companies make a kind of marriage agreement. This agreement should be based on trust, be honest, able to support each other in good and bad times. It should be considered as a long-term partnership and a partner should be chosen accordingly. The automation partner to be selected should carry you to the future and be able to apply technological developments to you.
The automation partner should first approach away from commercial concerns and create solutions accordingly. So he should choose the appropriate products for the application. It should not recommend unsuitable products by keeping commercial expectations high. Of course, he should determine his experiences in the field and in that field of application by looking at the needs of the customer and direct them accordingly. It should create solutions by combining the customer’s needs with technological developments.
Systems proposed or installed should be forward-looking and open systems. It should not confine the company to only one direction or product in the future. This will be important both for the development of the company and for the automation company. In new facility institutions, it should closely monitor the latest technological developments of that day and transfer them to the system as much as possible. Because technology is developing rapidly, it should not have to use old technology in its system. If he uses old technology in his system, this can naturally reduce his competitiveness in the market.
Working capacity and tolerances should be well defined. Otherwise, systems installed with very large capacities may work inefficiently. Inefficient systems can increase costs. Capacities can be considered in stages depending on the process. Modernizations are inevitable today. These both work inefficiently in the system and can be problematic. The maintenance and downtime costs of old systems are very high. Therefore, they should be replaced as soon as possible. Investments and modernizations for automation return with recovery in a short time. Automations should be considered as a whole as possible and should not be fragmented. If there will be fragmentation, the architectural structure should be well planned and after the lower parts are made, it should be considered to combine with the upper parts. The system should be able to allow it to eventually become a whole. Accordingly, it should enable the exchange of information, the receipt of reports and the use of a common database.
Sometimes, very costly downtimes can be experienced due to a cheap product. Products and companies should be selected accordingly; processes should be designed accordingly.
The service that the company gives or will give you should not be forgotten. It should be able to provide service to you in the event of any change, maintenance or malfunction.
Past work is one of the important parameters in choosing an automation partner. Of course, it is necessary not to accept these as just done, but to talk to the customer and get reference information whether it works or not.
