The Power of Integration by ABB: Integration brings significant value to process automation applications. Integration enables collaborative control system environments, improves operator effectiveness, helps generate cost effective control solutions, drives seamless control strategies and provides a flexible evolution path for existing systems.
ABB's System 800xA is an integration platform with unparalleled connectivity to plant systems, applications and devices that improves operations, engineering and maintenance. Integration lets ABB deliver systems that can leverage the power of integrated information from integrated process and power automation, to integrated process and safety, to integrated smart devices. A single visualization environment provides context and decision support, enabling operators to be as effective as possible. Visit www.abb.com/controlsystems to learn more.
This white paper will explore using State Based Control as a plant automation control design based on the principle that all process facilities operate in recognized, definable process states that represent a variety of normal and abnormal conditions of the process. Learn how SBC delivers direct benefits to its adopters in a variety of Operational Excellence categories.
FF HSE has been available to automation system suppliers since 1999, but few of these suppliers have provided the full features and functionality offered by this technology to their clients. Learn how FF HSE can help you reduce capital cost, improve process visibility and eliminate the need for controller peer to peer communications to share device information.
Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
