Five edge opportunities for SIs to maximise revenue in 2024

March 2024 Editor's Choice System Integration & Control Systems Design

System integrators continue to face the challenge of doing more with less – supporting complex operations, while meeting production schedules with limited resources, and innovating to increase efficiency, maximise safety and reduce risk.

In this session, you will hear about five edge computing opportunities for you to generate revenue and maximise profitability in 2024, including:

• Shifting from tech refresh projects to value-add engineering engagements.

• Modernisation projects that maximise reliability and lay a futureproof foundation for software solutions.

• Emerging applications that comprise a modern OT/IT stack.

• How edge computing architectures simplify project management for profitability.

• Ways that edge computing enables long tail revenue by offering post deployment services.

If you are interested in learning how edge computing offers key opportunities for you to add value to your customers by offering a wide range of software, service models, and future proof control architectures, then this session is for you.

Loop signature 22: How cyclical disturbances affect a control loop
Michael Brown Control Engineering Editor's Choice
When tuning noisy loops, we recommend in our courses that one should eliminate the noise by editing it out, so the tuning will be done only on the true process response, free of any noise. The controller is controlling the process, and is not controlling the noise.
