Significance of Industrial Automation
Industrial automation plays a very important role in the manufacturing industry.
Automation devices using mathematical and organizational methods create complex systems for a huge range of industrial automation applications.
Benefits of Industrial Automation
Automation, robotics, industrial automation, process control, and numerical control is the use of control systems such as computers to control industrial machinery and processes.
Some advantages are repeatability, tighter quality control, waste reduction, integration with business systems, increased productivity and reduction of labour. Some disadvantages are high initial costs and increased dependence on maintenance.
A major benefit of industrial automation technology is the latest field bus developments. The most popular protocols are DeviceNet, Profibus and ASi and the emerging Industrial Ethernet.
