A Journey Toward Autonomous Operations
Already automated, the process industries are poised for their next advance: industrial autonomy. Autonomy goes beyond automation by adding layers of smart sensing and machine cognition to anticipate and respond to unforeseen circumstances, ultimately removing the need for human intervention. In a fully autonomous operation, the system is responsible for all aspects of the operation–from startup through safe shutdown. This Knowledge Center is devoted to the technical advances and workflow best practices required for industry to take its first steps on that journey. Our Sponsor, Yokogawa is supporting customers on their journey with a pathway named Industrial Automation to Industrial Autonomy (IA2IA). See the many resources below.
