Software tools: PlantTriage adds graphical modeling
Drag-and-drop functions simplify matching model and actual process behavior.
PlantTriage's new visual modeling tools result in better dynamic process models to give better all-around analysis resulting in optimal PID tuning, accurate simulated response to upsets, and accurate response to process noise.
ExperTune says the new drag-and-drop modeling puts the engineer in control of the model fit.
This drag-and-drop modeling is fully compatible with PlantTriage’s active model capture tool. Using active model capture, operator setpoint moves are automatically captured and modeled.
John Gerry, president of ExperTune says, "The end results of these visual modeling tools are optimal plant operations. This ultimately, boosts efficiency and production while reducing waste and energy usage."

Annual Salary Survey
Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.
There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
