Fieldbus technology: Tested, proven and available today

Overview:

By all accounts, fieldbus technology is revolutionizing the way companies automate their plants and factories. This all-digital, two-way communications system allows end users to achieve true distributed control, thereby freeing valuable plant resources for real-time
production control.

This White Paper outlines the challenges facing modern industry that are different from those of the past. Shareholders expect increased profitability and sustainable growth. Expanding global markets lead to increased competition. These demands require that companies find new ways to reduce operating costs, streamline and/or re-orient workforces, accelerate delivery times, and develop innovative products.

Put another way, corporations are no longer seeking to maximize their operations, but rather optimize their enterprise. Management's directives are clear: make it cheaper…make it better…make it quicker…make it safer. Meeting the challenges of the 21st century requires a new way of thinking. Industry can no longer afford to rely on outdated strategies. Rather, it must break out of the paradigms of the past and adopt new, enabling tools for continuous improvement.
