Automation Week: Control Performance Track

Effective and accurate measurement and control are essential components of both improved efficiency and profitability of industrial operations. Traditionally, increased efficiency directly translated into increased profitability. But with the recent transition of key business variables to near real-time variability, it is essential to effectively measure and control both plant floor processes for increased efficiency and business processes for increased profitability.

This track covers the range of state-of-the-art measurement and control functionality as applied to plant floor operation and business processes to help industrial companies realize their operational and business objectives.
