ABOUT the CASE STUDIES
Case study briefs in Industrial Automation, Motion Control, Control Automation, Project Management, and Controls Engineering, summarize the work done in the related projects. The full reports are very technical in nature and are written to provide a set of reference documents to the customer.
Most of the effort made to put the contents of such reports into practice is done through meetings, phone conversations, and general guidance of the engineering staff by the consultant. If neccessary we provide the customer a dual set of documents, one is a complete reference report, the other contains raw information the engineers need to implement the industrial automation, process automation, automation control, or control theory based, design in hardware and software. The cost of the work to be done is related to the level of documentation to be delivered.
A sample System Engineering Proposal (SEP) document is available upon request. This document gives an idea of the cost of using ApICS LLC's design and mediation services. We negotiate all contracts, and provide discounts to new, and repeat customers, based on the size and nature of the project. Because of this we do not supply definitive pricing information on our web site. We are reasonable and cost effective, considerably less expensive than hiring in a full-time employee, or bringing your staff up to speed independently.
We do on-site service calls to solve web transport tension, position, speed, and other process and industrial controls stability problems on an as needed basis with a fixed hourly charge of $180/hr for up to 8 hrs per day. Overtime charge of 1 1/2 times the base rate applies for time over 8 hours. The customer pays for all travel costs. Due to the extensive experience we bring to the table, ApICS LLC consultants can generally solve a field stability problem very quickly, and only require someone to be on-site who is familiar with the hardware and software used in the DCS system.
Discounted rates are negotiable based on the size and nature of a contract
