Control Room Best Practices Push Comfort, Communication, Collaboration

Transforming gradually over the past decade, today’s process control rooms incorporate new ways to collaborate and communicate enterprise-wide, and protect operators from fatigue and stress.

Category description: Automation is the use of control systems and information technologies reducing the need for human intervention.[1] In the scope of industrialization, automation is a step beyond mechanization. Whereas mechanization provided human operators with machinery to assist them with the muscular requirements of work, automation greatly reduces the need for human sensory and mental requirements as well. Automation plays an increasingly important role in the world economy and in daily experience.
