CADS by HMH is a system to automate rig sequences. Typical CADS sequences are tripping, drilling connection and stand building. However, CADS can run any sequence.
Automation of repetitive sequences helps achieve increased performance and consistency by reducing the human factor in repetitive tasks like long tripping runs. CADS is a transparent system designed to keep the operator informed of what is happening. If operator confirmation or adjustment is required, the correct controls are presented to the operator in contextual aware operator screens.
CADS runs on top of DEAL so once DEAL is installed CADS can be added without updating machine control systems.
