Is there a way to measure the value/return on investment on software that manages automation program data?

ROI on a source code control solution is measured in terms of reducing unscheduled downtime, reducing errors, securing and providing access to source code, managing and organizing all your automation programs to enable reuse of existing logic, and numerous other benefits that increase safety and productivity.

 

Areas covered include the estimated time to create new revisions of software code, the estimated manpower required to facilitate accurate backups of the automation code, the estimated real cost of a downtime incident related to the loss of intellectual property and the costs associated with the response to a regulatory non-compliance 483 FDA warning letter.
