VIP initiative

Yokogawa Electric Corp. and its group companies have launched the Vigilant Integration Partners (VIP) initiative, an open, non-exclusive, standards-based, and interoperability-driven partnership that enables Yokogawa customers to integrate field devices supplied by VIP member companies with the Centum series production control system and the PRM asset management system. Yokogawa has also announced that Dresser Masoneilan, Flowserve, Metso Automation, and Samson AG – all suppliers of control valves – are joining the VIP initiative to develop and deliver open and interoperable plant asset management solutions. The new VIP initiative assures smooth integration and full interoperability between the field devices supplied by VIP member companies and Yokogawa Centum series production control and PRM asset management systems. Yokogawa and the VIP member companies are further joining forces for the on-going development of plant asset management solutions such as predictive diagnostics and process performance diagnostics that can be deployed by customers using open standards-based production control systems and plant asset management systems.
