Rockwell Automation Fair

Global Process Automation (GPA) is pleased to announce that Daniel Lee, VP of Operations, will speak at the Pulp & Paper forum for the second time at the upcoming 2017 Automation Fair held by Rockwell Automation in Houston, TX. This forum is scheduled for Thursday, November 16 from 9AM until 11AM.

Mr. Lee will be speaking about GPA’s experience with legacy DCS migrations that utilize PlantPAx with a major Pulp and Paper client. By implementing a “Rock-solid” system, the client was able to realize a number of benefits to their business including: reduced life-cycle costs, increased effectiveness in troubleshooting and the ability to make faster decisions thanks to the availability of more data.

Mr. Lee’s position as VP of Operations with GPA puts him in a unique position to speak on DCS migrations as well as many other topics related to industrial process control, automation, data acquisition, visualization and process automation. Along with business development, operational management, and customer relations management, Mr. Lee is integral to custom system design, layout, scheduling, and engineering support for large control system projects.
