  • Moving toward IT and controls engineering convergence

    This paper provides a current snapshot of the IT/controls dynamic based on interviews with more than 20 professionals in IT and manufacturing. Their feedback was the foundation for development of a maturity model that shows the three distinct paths and five stages of maturity for each of the major categories of issues: organizational, business process, technology deployment and results.

  • The Challenge of Maximizing Service Availability and Security

    Nearly every product, service, application and data type is moving to an IP-based infrastructure. As a result, formerly isolated products in homogenous networks are embedded within heterogeneous deployments, resulting in dramatically larger and more complex attack surfaces that are exposed to a wide variety of potential attack sources.

  • Nonlinear Control and Decision Making Using Fuzzy Logic in Logix

    This white paper explores fuzzy logic and how it helps engineers solve nonlinear control problems commonly found in process applications. Fuzzy logic, which mathematically emulates human reasoning, provides an intuitive way to design function blocks for intelligent control systems, advanced fault detection and other complex applications. Control systems deploying fuzzy logic can improve the management of uncertain variables, such as temperature fluctuations.
