1. Gear Up for the Next Industrial Revolution

    Most people don't realize that the much-heralded Internet of Things (IoT), which we wrote about a few months back, is actually better established and operational in the industrial environment than it is in the highly publicized consumer world. That's because the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is already integrated into automation solutions, using networking hardware and software to interlink…Read More

  2. Modularity Is Scalability for Today’s SCADA Systems

    When you use a computer every day and discover you need to perform a new task, you don't automatically go look for a new PC; you seek out software that you can add to your existing machine to expand its capabilities. It should be the same with supervisory control and data acquisition systems, but that isn't always the case. Without a sensible pre-planning strategy, organizations can face replacing…Read More

  3. Industrial Internet of Things(IIoT)

    The Internet of Things is perceived the 4th Industrial Revolution, by year 2020 there will be around 50 billion devices connected to the internet, IoT is a network of embedded objects that communicates, interacts with the external environment, interconnecting these devices in real-time will enable sharing and interconnectivity to help plant operators to effectively supervise, control and acquire p…Read More

  4. Close the BYOD Gap

    Almost overnight, it seems, permitting employees to bring their own devices to the workplace and use them to remotely access data and process controls has moved from a marginal activity to a mainstream practice. Nearly two-thirds of manufacturing companies now permit bring-your-own-device (BYOD) interactivity. But the trend has happened so quickly that only a fraction of firms actually have polici…Read More

  5. Automation Aids Energy Conservation

    Many organizations think of energy conservation as an important tool for controlling direct costs and increasing productivity. It is — but it’s also much more than that. It’s a vital element of the drive to meet global mandates requiring organizations to significantly reduce their carbon footprints. Industry is the biggest user of energy in the U.S., accounting for almost one-third of annual…Read More

  6. Put Automation First in Process Engineering Plans

    In developing any process engineering project, there is a hierarchy of steps, and the success and timely delivery of each step depends on those that come before it. If you put your steps in the wrong order, however, your project is likely to miss out on enhancements that ensure it is optimized and efficient. What is the right order? What is the step that should come first in your list of prioritie…Read More

  7. Automation Ensures Health, Fitness of Your Project

    What is process automation, and why is it so important? To answer this question, think of your engineering process like a human body. In the body, each part has a clear function, but all the parts depend on each other. To paint the picture in full, let’s think about all the disciplines involved in a process engineering project. Say a company wants to build some type of a processing plant (e.g., …Read More
