This brief chapter will examine only a limited number of areas: those where significant progress in subsea automation has been made or where there is potential for further progress. It is hoped this will stimulate ideas and discussion for the future, for as all too often in our industry there is too ready an acceptance of past practice, although it may be less efficient or more costly than what is achievable today because ‘it worked last time’. So it may have, but we must ask ‘Was it time efficient and was it cost effective?’
