A Process Control System for Production Diesel Engine Testing
Current technology, especially in our dynamic industry, demands more reliable and up-to-date information in order to operate efficiently. Data of many kinds, from many sources, must be collected, analyzed, and rapidly transmitted into information which can be used to optimize performance and improve our product. To meet these needs in production diesel engine testing, a process control system has been developed around the basic objective of establishing an accurate and regimented test program, which will provide more reliable information for analysis and action, increased test capacity, accurate history data, and a higher quality product. This paper describes the basic design of such a system, the advantages to be gained, and the overall operation.
