Reliable processes thanks to automation competence:
Development of practical working results, taking safety, environmental protection and health into consideration. NAMUR believes in acting responsibly with a view to achieving sustainability and is committed to the principles of responsible care.
Proposed solutions are formulated on the basis of a holistic approach to process technology processes, taking the lifecycle costs of devices and systems into consideration.
Cost savings by the use of synergy effects:
Experience exchange among its member companies and partners
Discussion and communication of user interests
Exchange of information on current issues
Division of labour
Definition of requirements:
Definition of minimum requirements relating to equipment and systems
Fair dialogue with manufacturers: Experience reports from application technology practice to improve product quality, avoid excessive product diversity and achieve cost advantages for users and manufacturers
Identification of development needs from future automation engineering requirements
Active influencing of regulations:
Active cooperation in national and international standardisation through inclusion of user requirements
Influencing of standardisation committees, authorities and supervisory bodies to actively design industry standards and to prevent cost-increasing standards alien to the industry
Focussing on the future:
Addressing of future issues of relevance for process control
