The Role:
REPORTS TO:
CHIEF PROCESS CONTROL ENGINEER
SUPERVISES:
PROCESS CONTROL ENGINEERS AND PROCESS ENGINEERS (AS ASSIGNED)

RESPONSIBILITIES & DUTIES:
1. Technical Developments
1.1 Keep informed of technical developments in process control applications in process industries and make recommendations to Chief Process Control Engineer on methods of improving competitive position.
1.2 Keep informed of process control applications using microprocessor, PLC and process control computer systems in related business areas such as Computer Aided Manufacturing/Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CAM/CIM).
2. Departmental
2.1 Keep Chief Process Control Engineer informed of progress of junior engineers and their potential for accepting increased responsibility.
2.2 Be aware of the requirements of Supplier's secrecy agreements and ensure they are strictly observed.
2.3 Maintain process control applications records and files.
3. Current Proposals and Contracts
3.1 Be responsible for the co-ordination and progress of process control applications design for one or more projects, as assigned, under the supervision of the Proposal/Project Manager. Liaise with Suppliers' representatives and other departments on all matters relating to process control applications design for assigned projects. Supervise Process Control Engineers and Process Engineers as assigned.
3.2 Be responsible for technical accuracy, quality and economy of process control applications design for assigned projects.
3.3 Ensure that Company Safety and Quality Control Procedures are followed during execution of all contracts and that a high standard of safety is achieved in all design work.
3.4 Make calculations for assigned projects, establishing major methods and data as necessary and ensure selection of the optimum process control applications scheme from both technical and economic standpoints. Ensure subsequent detailed work conforms with such overall calculations.
3.5 Ensure that design methods, standards and data used conform with Client's requirements and/or those issued
3.6 Prepare presentation of information, scope of process control applications work and project execution strategy for proposals. Participate in discussions at proposal stage with Clients and Hardware and Software Suppliers to assist definition of scope of work and project execution strategy. Clarify and cross reference scope of work and project execution with Control Systems Engineer.
3.7 Participate after contract award in discussions with Client to assess and assist in the definition of user requirements. Prepare Process Control and Operations Philosophy document incorporating user requirements.
3.8 Carry out site surveys and technical investigations.
3.9 Review and develop Process Flow Diagrams, Engineering Flow Diagrams and develop the control schemes to fully utilise the capabilities of modern microprocessor control systems. Show additional instrumentation required to implement these control strategies in conjunction with Process Engineers and Instrument and Engineering Group, (Engineering Department). Assess the economic payback of such schemes.
3.10 Solve process control applications problem that are recognised during development of the Front End Package or detailed engineering, using dynamic simulation if necessary.
3.11 Assist Control Systems Engineer by preparing the process requirements for the control system and (if needed) process control computer. Prepare Complex Control Scheme Descriptions and/or Process Specifications showing the requirements of the loops including signal linearisation, multiplication, division ratio etc. Provide constants associated with the mathematic and other process control data. Hold discussions with the Client to clarify control strategy, operating philosophies, manning requirements, generation of management reports and process information displays.
3.12 Prepare Sequence Descriptions and Logic Diagrams (flowcharts) for sequencing operations and batch control.
3.13 Participate in Hazop and SIL Reviews during detailed engineering.
3.14 Determine loop algorithms and initial controller settings for critical complex loops by simulation where necessary.
3.15 Develop control system graphics and process information displays such as energy balances and equipment process performance monitoring.
3.16 Assist the Control Systems Engineer with the control system factory acceptance test at the Supplier's works.
3.17 Specify and coordinate the work of Process Control Applications Software Suppliers. Prepare test data and carry out acceptance tests.
3.18 Assist the Principal/Senior Commissioning Engineer in the preparation of Operating Manuals.
3.19 Provide site assistance at start up, with operator training, loop tuning during commissioning and hand over to Client.
3.20 Ensure that Process Control calculations and other documents are filed in the proper manner at the conclusion of design work.
3.21 Ensure that any items of technical information of lasting interest and use which become available during the design of a project are incorporated in Process Control Section Group Files.
3.22 Be familiar with the current application of computer systems and endeavour to optimise their use and development within the project / department budget, both to solve technical problems and to promote the effective management of information. These systems will include the application of CAD, PDS, DMRS and SMILE etc.
4. Technical Investigations and Computer Programs
4.1 Advise Chief Process Control Engineer of possible fields for technical investigations and computer programs.
4.2 Advise Chief Process Control Engineer of deficiencies and possible changes to the established design methods, standards and data.
4.3 Work on approved technical investigation projects and computer programs to the extent authorised by Chief Process Control Engineer.
5. Assistance to Other Departments
5.1 Provide technical support to sales activities on request of Chief Process Control Engineer.
5.2 Assist Control Systems Engineer to prepare control system enquiry requisition by providing user requirements (contained in Process Control and Operations Philosophy) and assist in Technical Bid Analysis.
