"The plant control system that MINDS designed for us has worked very well.

The graphics depict the plant almost identically as built and are very easy to follow from the control room.

Each valve is shown with its position indicated by colors that make identifying issues, such as a stuck valve, extremely easy.

The materials that we have produced with the system have been very consistent from the first production run. Also, MINDS been very responsive to any issues that have been identified and can dial into the system and make adjustments easily."
