BoBoCoAe, IDC Engineers & Ventus Publishing ApS | 2012 | ISBN: 740300048 9788740300048 | 205 pages | PDF | 13 MB

This book delivers a critical blend of knowledge and skills, covering technology in control and instrumentation, industry analysis and forecasts, leadership and management - everything that is relevant to a modern control and instrumentation engineer. Good management, financial and business skills are also provided in these chapters. These highly practical materials provide you with solid skills in this often neglected area for control and instrumentation engineers.

Industrial Automation is a discipline that includes knowledge and expertise from various branches of engineering including electrical, electronics, chemical, mechanical, communications and more recently computer and software engineering. Automation & Control by its very nature demands a cross fertilization of these faculties.
Industrial Automation Engineers have always drawn new technologies and implemented original or enhanced versions to meet their requirements. As the range of technology diversifies the demand on the innovative ability of these Engineers has increased.
