Control system integration

1 Certified Professional Development Hour (PDH) available upon successful completion of an exam for eligible attendees.

Most plants and many facilities have multiple control systems. How well are they communicating with each other, with subsystems and with other systems and software in the facility or enterprise? What protocols are helping lower costs and improve communications with lower levels, with other controls and with other applications? Can analytics help sort it out when data exchange is less than optimal?


Learning objectives:

  • Understand tools being used to connect control systems of various vintages and from different manufacturers.
  • Explore options for exchanging information with devices connected to the control system.
  • Assess ways information is exchanged with other software platforms in the organization and the cloud, analyzed and delivered where needed for better decisions.
  • See examples of how such control system integration and analytics are working and producing benefits.
