Insights on the Impact of Industry 4.0 for Process Automation
1 Nov
2017

Of the technology trends that I have observed in recent years, few developments have been more exciting than Industry 4.0 for Process Automation. Having the opportunity to attend several events and talk with professionals throughout the industry, it’s clear that Industry 4.0 concepts and technology are being applied to process automation. At the 2017 Hannover Fair, for instance, I was fortunate enough to meet with Michael Ziesemer, an executive with Endress+Hauser and president of ZVEI, to discuss the impact of Industry 4.0 for process industries.  This is not the first discussion I have had with Ziesemer, as I have found through many discussions with the engineering industry veteran, that his opinions and observations are always insightful.

CREATING A GENDER BALANCE IN THE OIL AND GAS SECTOR
15 Sept
2017

Cover Story: While the oil and gas sector is still male-dominated, engineering-minded associations are working to motivate more women to work in the field.

While technology and engineering constantly evolve, the gender balance is an issue that still needs to be addressed by those who work in the sector. Throughout history, the engineering industry has traditionally underplayed its female workforce. For example, how many people could name the famous male machinist and engineer who industrialized car production in 1920s America (Henry Ford), compared to the female engineer—and movie star—behind a remote-controlled communications system for the U.S military during World War II which now serves as a basis for Bluetooth and Wi-Fi network connections (Hedy Lamarr).

2017 ENGINEERS' CHOICE AWARDS
10 Mar
2017

The 30th annual Control Engineering Engineers’ Choice Awards shines a light on 28 categories of control, instrumentation, and automation products, revealing the best of those introduced in 2016 as chosen by you, Control Engineering’s print and digital audience. Review the winners and honorable mentions here to see if their innovative solutions can help you solve one of your most pressing problems.

Also, join us in congratulating these technological innovators. Let them know you learned about their solutions in Control Engineering, and tell them what problems you need solutions for next. Their continuous improvement ensures that manufacturers, machine builders, and automation system integrators can achieve the levels of agility, efficiency, and effectiveness necessary to compete—and win—in today’s global economy.

More than 100 finalists from 63 companies were listed on ballots for evaluation. Automation professionals from Control Engineering’s subscriber lists—all of whom are responsible for or influence technology purchases, or have hands-on day-to-day interaction with the technologies in each category—then voted to identify the products they felt were the most exceptional based on technological advancement, service to the industry, and market impact. The result is a short list of Engineers’ Choice Awards winners and honorable mentions in 28 categories. A total of 1 grand winner, 28 winners, and 28 honorable mentions were named for 2017.

WHAT IS INDUSTRIE 4.0
22 Feb
2017

Industrie 4.0 combines production methods with state-of-the-art information and communication technology. The driving force behind this development is the rapidly increasing digitisation of the economy and society. It is changing the future of manufacturing and work in Germany: In the tradition of the steam engine, the production line, electronics and IT, smart factories are now determining the fourth industrial revolution.

The technological foundation is provided by intelligent, digitally networked systems that will make largely self-managing production processes possible: In the world of Industrie 4.0, people, machines, equipment, logistics systems and products communicate and cooperate with each other directly. Production and logistics processes are integrated intelligently across company boundaries to make manufacturing more efficient and flexible.

This facilitates smart value-creation chains which include all of the lifecycle phases of the product – from the initial product idea and development, production, use and maintenance through to recycling. In this way, customer wishes for everything from the product idea through to recycling can be taken into account, as well as the related services. This enables companies to produce products that are customised according to individual customer requirements more easily than before. The individual production and maintenance of products could become the new norm.
