Why Software Is Critical to Automation System Design
Date / Time: Wednesday, October 26, 2011, 2:00:00 p.m. EDT
Sponsored by
Overview:
With the emergence of the fully automated factory, software is becoming a crucial component of design and manufacturing success. Whether you're talking about the rapid product development cycle, design for manufacturability, or repeatable, high-quality production yields in factory automation settings, it's often the software that's the gating factor. Jonah Paul, Product Manager for Industrial Software at National Instruments, and moderator Rob Spiegel, Senior Editor of Design News, will discuss the issues involved with developing, deploying, controlling, and upgrading automation software.
