This page will give you a detail of what each section of our family tree represents. Let’s begin by telling you a little bit about ourselves.
Avanceon began in 1984, with a primary focus on electrical design, Programmable Logic Computer (PLC), controls, automation, and Human Machine Interface (HMI). By the 1990s, we began to expand, adding additional services in the Supervisory Control and Data Acquisitions (SCADA) world, ISA-88 (S88) Batching, Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) with a focus on Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE)/Performance, Traceability/Operations, Statistical Process Control (SPC)/Quality, and, lastly, Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Integration. In the early 2000s, we incorporated 24×7 support with root cause resolutions, and resource augmentation. By the 2010s, we realized that upgrading equipment wasn’t enough. Technology was changing and our clients needed to be trained and educated by the new methods installed in their factories. Furthermore in the 2020’s, we added Machine Learning/AI and industry 4.0 and data analytics expertise to our skillsets.
