Over the past decades, industrial automation benefits have often been determined based on the cost savings achieved by headcount reductions. Today, in most industrial organizations staffing is at critically low levels and headcount reductions are no longer feasible. One of the emerging key aspects of business benefits with respect to industrial automation lies in enabling the people to be more effective both individually and collaboratively.
This track covers technologies and approaches in which industrial automation helps meet the objective of improving performance of the range of personnel functions (operations, maintenance, engineering, supervision and management) across industrial operations.
