Welcome to CONTROL's Process Automation Usability Project
Here you'll find forums for discussing how to streamline and simplify the application and use of process automation technologies.
For too long, technology in general—and process automation technology in particular—has been difficult to apply, to use, and to maintain. These forums intend to change that by providing a repository for the process automation community's best thinking on usability improvements.
Forums are organized according to Planning, Design, Implementation, Operations, Maintenance, and Security issues. If you have a comment not related to these issues, please visit the Other Topics forum. Use these forums to describe a problem, suggest a solution, or brainstorm the "what ifs?" that could help set a new standard in technology usability.
Sometimes, of course, a picture or video is worth a thousand words. Join our Flickr group or YouTube channel to see, share and comment on images and videos related to the forum topics. Or use the Twitter hashtag #PAutoUP to share your thoughts in real time.
Everyone is welcome to read and post in these forums. To post, however, you must log in to your ControlGlobal.com account. Not a member of ControlGlobal.com yet? Register now to begin posting.
