THE COURSE

This online course presents the nuts and bolts of the subject ranging from Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs), Distributed Control Systems (DCSs), process control concepts, industrial data communications to SCADA and manufacturing execution systems. Using the detailed, intensive industrial automation content, attendees gain the latest know-how, and an excellent overview, of industrial automation in modern plants.

If you would like to gain an overall appreciation and general understanding of industrial automation and control technology, then this course is ideal for you. This ranges from the factory floor (sensors, instrumentation, actuators, Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs), Distributed Control Systems (DCSs)) Programmable Logic Controllers, Distributed Control Systems, SCADA systems, industrial Ethernet, Fieldbus, wireless to OPC – best practice and trends.

The course is cleverly designed to give a broad-brush appreciation of the key concepts and approaches used in modern industrial automation. The four threads running through the course are:

  • PLCs, PACs and DCS technology
  • Process control and advanced process control
  • Industrial data communications
  • MES and the business enterprise

 

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN?

  • An appreciation of the latest developments in industrial automation
  • Cutting edge best practice in instrumentation, PLCs, PACs
  • Update on Fieldbus, industrial Ethernet, industrial wireless
