What is LAP?
Limitless Automation Possibilities
- Powerful, Low-Code industrial automation tool which eliminates writing most PLC logic
- Flexible control engine inspired by ISA-88 while remaining highly customizable
- Visualization graphics which streamline plant floor troubleshooting by displaying PLC functions in layman’s terms
- Resilient runtime system execution with 100% code residing in the PLC dependent of any server
- Ability to perform incremental and major system modifications with option to instantaneously revert without a traditional download
Reduced automation cost and ease of ownership
- Minimize PLC coding by simply linking I/O modules to the LAP engine
- Configure automation instead of writing code by utilizing the LAP interface
- Utilize more staff to modify automation without PLC knowledge
- Apply multiple system configurations for change overs or optimization
- Access MES data without data mining
- Decrease burden on your automation department by providing plant floor personnel unparalleled visibility
- Remove the automation moat around your facility by exercising platform independence
- Real time process automation changes without writing code
- Multiple configuration storage for dynamic or recipe driven processes
- Platform independence with the same look and feel
- Unmatched control system visibility to the entire plant floor
- Intuitive automation configuration user interface
- Simplified data retrieval for information driven decisions
- On demand system configuration reporting for system documentation and compliance
- Reduced Cost of Ownership
- Drastically reduces development time
- Migrate to less costly automation platforms
- Reduced burden on control staff from day-to-day operations
- Decreased downtime
- Eliminates server interaction during production
- Low code significantly reduces programming errors
- Plant floor operations can easily troubleshoot system without going online with the PLC

The first rule of any technology used in a business is that automation applied to an efficient operation will magnify the efficiency. The second is that automation applied to an inefficient operation will magnify the inefficiency.
The shortage of critical care items and other goods resulting from Covid-19 has brought into stark focus the importance of increased manufacturing capacity and flexibility in the U.S. Alongside previous trends, such as onshoring and the lack of skilled labor, the need for manufacturing automation is at an all-time high.
-World Economic Forum
We’ve reached an inflection point. Current industrial automation system architecture has done a good job of advancing industry to where we are today, but to realize the full promise of the Fourth Industrial Revolution we need to fundamentally change our technology model.
-Chad Wallace, CEO Blue Ridge Automation
We must continuously strive to work ourselves out of our position, and just move forward.
