  • Podcast: Enhancing Operator Performance

    In this podcast, Peter Reynolds at ARC Advisory Group, talks with Jim Montague, Control's executive editor, about many of the new tools and methods for improving operator performance, from prioritized data displays that aid situational awareness to sit-stand workstations to assist alertness.

  • Colorado Springs Utilities (CSU) Standardizes All Plant Operations on Rockwell Automation Integrated Architecture

    Colorado Springs Utilities (CSU) provides water, wastewater, gas, and electric services to customers in the Pikes Peak Region of Colorado. CSU was experiencing failures with a distributed control system and needed a new solution that would provide enhanced reliability, efficiency and sustainability. Unexpected plant outages were becoming a costly problem. The CSU water department had already migrated its legacy DCS system to a Rockwell Automation control system, so the utility decided to standardize all plant operations on Rockwell Automation Integrated Architecture because they needed a single vendor capable of providing integrated hardware, software, and networking.

    The new solution allowed CSU to remotely operate multiple gas, hydroelectric and power plants from a single central location. Operators can now perform maintenance and troubleshooting tasks at a plant onsite or online from a central facility to better meet customer demands, save time and reduce labor costs.

  • User-Centered Design at Work Podcast

    More process control engineers are recognizing that operational errors cause most process slowdowns and shutdowns. The March 2011 cover article explores how some innovative users are preventing these user-based problems. Executive editor Jim Montague interviews ARC's senior process analyst Dave Woll to comment on the users' preventative measures.

  • Rethinking SCADA Software For Modern Manufacturing -- Inductive Automation

    SCADA software has gotten out of control. What if there was a better way to manage control systems? See how web-based software, open standards technology, and unlimited usage licensing are being used to transform the SCADA / control system software landscape. Ignition by Inductive Automation is being used around the world to create HMI, SCADA and MES applications.

  • Market Intelligence Report: Operator Interface/HMI

    Control Global surveyed its audience to find out more about how they use operator interfaces and HMIs. Editor in Chief Walt Boyes analyzes the 2010 results and compares these to the results of the same survey taken in 2008. Watch this video report and see if there is a difference in how operator interfaces and HMIs are used today.

  • Market Intelligence Report: Operator Interface/HMIs

    Human-machine interfaces (HMIs) are increasing in number, variety, resolution, sophistication and related computing power, and so are becoming all-pervasive in most process applications. To help make sense of this rapidly changing market, Jim Montague, Control's executive editor, presents the results of Control's latest Market Intelligence Report on HMIs. Respondents reported on how they use HMIs to interact with their plants’ control systems, the age of their existing HMIs, their visual presentation preferences and on how well their HMIs handle alarms.

  • Remote HMI Systems-What Control Readers Like (And Dislike)

    This Special Report from the Process Automation Media Network, sponsored by EZAutomation, focuses on how Control readers use remote HMI systems and what they like--and don't like--about them. Walt Boyes reports on a special survey done in early August of 2008 of over 225 Control readers.
