This change takes a huge burden off the control, engineer -- who used to spend countless hours doing -- or paying for -- original programming. This is happening at a time when the baby boom control engineers are starting to retire. There was plenty of concern that this generation was taking its knowledge out the door. Suppliers now say that knowledge is getting captured in the software.

Rob, I remember you saying before that the looming retirement issue needed to be addressed. Sounds like this is one way to do that.
