Effective today, the article “Self-certified plants – The case of Tecnica Elettronica S. p. A.” is available for consultation and download in the “articoli” section of the “LM Leadership & Management” magazine’s web page:


The article describes how the goal of self-certification for an automated plant can be achieved through an extension of the functions of the supervision and control system together with the proper choice of measuring instruments and the consolidation of networks for the acquisition, management and transmission of processed data and information.
The reliability of the measures obtained by the system is guaranteed by the fact that the control and management of the production process themselves takes place through them; for this reason, a design approach, conceived also to define and formalize the information needed by the stakeholders throughout the entire life cycle of the plant, allows its evolution as a collection, processing and certification centre for the measures that can be carried out in the plant.
