Automation is commonly defined as the use of Control Systems in industrial processes, to reduce the need of human intervention, not just with regard to physical work, but also with respect to human sensory and mental requirements.

According to ATM’s approach, Automation is mainly the opportunity to maximize plant safety and productivity, as well as business profitability, by combining readily available state-of-the-art technologies with the process characteristics and requirements.

Based on this approach, the successful implementation of a new automation system requires that it be selected, engineered and installed taking into account local and human factors, such as the plant site, local conditions, existing facilities, operator skills, etc.

In particular, ATM provides design services relating to integrated systems for Automation, with a view to improving and optimizing operational activities.
