Process Plant Computing Limited (PPCL)

UCDS worked with PPCL on alarm management projects for Big West Oil, P66, Atlantic, Borregaard, focusing on alarm rationalization.

Founded in 1994, Process Plant Computing Limited (PPCL) is the brainchild of Dr. Robin Brooks.  Dr. Brooks spent many years studying multi-dimensional geometry and parallel coordinate transformation, before forming the company.

The driving force was the hope to further develop his research and apply it to the process industries of the world.  This research has led to the granting of nine patents and the creation of ‘equation-less’ process modeling.  In turn, this has lead to the integration of process control, quality control and process alarms and the creation of what is believed to be the first-ever general method of calculating values for alarm limits and alerts.
