Some of these smart plant technologies, too, are what will allow manufacturers to be a part of the Internet of things, connecting myriad devices and systems together for better accessibility, awareness, monitoring and the like.

I'm not sure they're less commonly used Chuck (though I'd guess they are), but the devices are coming with embedded intelligence that makes deployment easier and quicker. So the integrator's visit is bound to be considrably shorter.

Great slideshow, Rob. Your comment about "endless visits" from system integrators piqued my interest. Are system integrators playing a smaller role in the "brilliant plant?"

Naperlou, Yes, the smart plant is helping to keep the U.S. in the game. It's also keeping Europe in the game. It's helping to fuel the movement to keep manufacturing close to the markets it serves.

Rob, I would like to second that.  This is an interesting area.  Many people are not very much tuned in with it, but the application of computer technologies to the shop floor is what is keeing the US in the game.

Intersting slideshow, Rob, about how things are improving in the plant environment thanks to the use of new technology. These technologies are evolving quickly, it seems, and that's a good thing. Anything to make the environment cleaner, quieter and more efficient is certainly welcome.
