Augmented Manual Procedures (AMP) is a platform-independent procedural automation solution that reduces the risk of abnormal events. Based on patented NovaTech technology, AMP is a cost-effective way for process manufacturers to error-proof the human execution of manual tasks in concert with any existing automated control system, without adding additional IO.
Design Procedures Visually
AMP uses an intuitive object palette built into Microsoft® Visio® that allows procedure writers and engineers to collaborate and capture best practices and industry knowledge into consistently structured SOPs.
Manage and Execute Procedures
The AMP Procedure Overview Display delivers SOPs to the operator through an intuitive checklist interface that allows for easy scheduling and running of approved procedures.
Executed procedure records, including timestamps, operator comments, and control system results are generated as secure PDFs.

Safer and More Efficient Operations
AMP reduces human error by integrating SOPs into the operator’s daily workflow. Updates to procedures are reflected instantly in the Procedure Overview Display. Repeatable and reliable execution of the latest SOP drives efficiency and safety under all operating conditions.
Consistent Operations Across Multiple Control Systems
AMP is built on a platform-independent OPC (both server and client) architecture, allowing it to be deployed in any control system environment. This creates a uniform operator experience and procedural consistency in all of your facilities. Manual steps (covered by an SOP) are executed in harmony with the automated control strategy.
