In today's ultra-competitive manufacturing environment, companies that do not invest in integrated plant automation will be left behind. In the early days the focus was on PLC and SCADA automation simply to replace relay control logic to increase reliability and reduce costs. Now the focus has shifted to increasing flexibility and agility in the manufacturing process. Manufacturers are increasingly demanding the ability to easily and quickly switch manufacturing products on the same line based on changing consumer demands. Today, decision support via data analysis with prescriptive insights, is a must to lead the pack.
