Make Use of our Experience in the Chinese Market
Process Automation in China
When it comes to the planning of plants and automation solutions in China, RÖSBERG is the right partner at your side.
RÖSBERG has been actively represented in the Chinese market since 2004, with its own branch office in Dalian. We are familiar with the customs and traditions of the Chinese market and have formed important contacts there.
Enterprises planning processing plants in China encounter quite a few challenges. The first hurdle that has to be overcome is the language barrier. Planners are usually dependent on a translator and need to be confident that technical aspects will be understood and translated accurately. Because we have been cooperating with our Chinese colleagues for a long time now, we can trust their technical know-how and be sure that our meaning will be correctly interpreted.
Approaches to coordination and project management in China differ markedly from those in Germany. At the same time, engineering know-how is on a different level. Thus solutions may be found which, although they function technically, are unnecessarily expensive. And because we are always concerned with individual solutions, there aren’t any models which could simply be copied. Creative engineering thought is called for – a way of thinking which is not yet so widespread among Chinese engineers. In this respect, our Chinese colleagues have acquired a great deal of know-how from various projects and training sessions over the years.
Many small and medium-sized German firms wanting to set up a production plant in China, but having little or no experience of projects there, have been able to make use of our experience and know-how.
When a German enterprise wishes to build a plant in China, the planning begins in Germany. At this stage coordination with Chinese partners is also necessary. Thus at the beginning of the project one or several Chinese colleagues, as necessary, come to our German location. This cuts travel costs and ensures that our Chinese colleagues are involved in the project right from the start, from the specification of customer requirements, through the detail engineering for the process technology, the assembling of the system cabinets and the configuration of the distributed control system, to the support of commissioning and the on-site training of employees. In projects of this kind we usually carry out the factory acceptance test for the automation solution at our location in Dalian. The complete solution is then securely packed for transport. All that remains to be done on site is to connect it up – and the system is up and running. The user can be sure he is getting a solution in line with German standards.
Our software products ProDOK® and LiveDOK are now also established on the Chinese market. Shanghai Chemical Plant Co., Ltd. was the first big Chinese company to be convinced by the efficiency of ProDOK® and has been using it successfully in factory planning since 2004.
RÖSBERG is also proud to count the large Chinese enterprise Dahua Group Dalian Chemical Industry Co.,Ltd. among its customers. Our software is also already used by the Chinese subsidiaries of well known German producers.
