Lakeside Automation / Reliability Open House Lakeside Automation / Reliability Open House

Establish your systems and gather decision-making information by leveraging automation, software and various reliability solutions.

Join us at our Open House as we focus on how to effectively integrate your plant asset data into presentable and complete solutions in the hands of those that need it the most.  

Retrieving plant data can be difficult, time consuming and in some instances, impossible due to hardware limitations. Come meet our local experts who will be sharing their experiences of how they leveraged technology, including Automation software and various Reliability solutions, to gather this data easily and effectively. Our guest speakers will be speaking from their combined experiences on how to best integrate different aspects of a running plant so that your staff is looking at the right data at the right time.

Leave the day with an Action Plan on how to make data-driven decisions that can be utilized not only on the plant floor but in the board room as well. Guests are welcome to join all presentations and live demos that demonstrate how we here at Lakeside integrate different systems together.

Presentations and Live Demos

Guest speakers from industries and Emerson will share automation, data gathering and use experience.

See live system demos with software and hardware including common devices in the plant and other settings – VFDs, valve, measurement, and machinery health devices.
What are the major issues facing your plant? How healthy are your key assets that could lead to a major shutdown? Where are the safety gaps that would lead to unexpected downtime? Allan Faurschou will discuss these major issues facing your plant and how to use information gathered from your automation system to make data-driven decisions.
Data. Everyone wants it but how do it gather it? And, once you have it, how do you get it in the hands of your decision makers? DCS vs PLC? Neil Stephenson has extensive experience with both DCS and PLC based system breaks and industry best practices. Join us to as Neil breaks down how to get the data you need into the hands of the people that need it.
Discover how you can effortlessly advance in your digital transformation journey with immediate and significant results. The AMS Wireless Vibration Monitor and Asset Monitor possess distinct features that ensure simple installation and configuration, allowing you to be operational within minutes, not hours.

Meet the Speakers:

A licensed Engineer (Manitoba) with over 25 years of experience in pharmaceutical and biotechnology processing systems, automation, construction, and project management. Through varied experiences in multiple industries and roles, Allan brings a holistic approach to design that encompasses multiple disciplines.

Allan is also an expert in project planning and validation master planning, having developed project execution schedules from conceptual design to validated commercial operation. He has created master validation plans for new facilities and manufacturing processes and introduced, installed, and validated Computerized Maintenance Management Systems (CMMS) at 3 different sites. 

Allan has a B.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Manitoba and is a member of the Engineers Geoscientists of Manitoba, P. Eng., International Society of Pharmaceutical Engineers (ISPE), and Parenteral Drug Association (PDA).

I graduated from the University of Manitoba with a B.Sc. and M.Sc. in BioSystems Engineering. After graduating, I started at Cangene Corporation, now Emergent BioSolutions. I worked in the Pharmaceutical industry for 19 years, before joining a startup company in the food industry. The startup company recently went into receivership, and I’ve rejoined Emergent BioSolutions in the Engineering Department. 

At Emergent, I’ve had roles in Validation and Engineering, and experience in projects anywhere from a upgrade on equipment and controls, to new 30,000 sq. ft building additions, with yearly capital budgets ranging from $1MM to $30MM. In the food industry, we built a 90,000 sq. ft new facility in approximately 18 months, for $170MM. Most of my work experience I’ve worked with the DeltaV platform, highly leveraging the S88 batch standard.  With my foray into the food industry, Allen Bradley Plant PAX system was chosen. 

From a work perspective, I enjoy building things. I like to work on projects from their initial concept through to fully operational. On the automation side, I’ve found the most successful projects were when the automation/controls team were brought on early into the project and able to influence the design, specifically on the P&ID development.
