AIS’s Control & Monitoring Solutions Closing the Gap Between Process and Operator Interaction

As factories and plants become more complex and more connected, they need to improve communication and visualization of all their processes. Furthermore, they need to integrate their entire plant process, replacing isolated cells of activity with control and monitoring solutions that visualizes process control and improve the flow of information, from the simplest sensor on the plant floor to corporate intranet and extranet. AIS operator control and monitoring solutions help simplify automation complexity, layers of process detail and user interaction. The benefits to a well-designed HMI and operator interface and control system include increased safety, quality and production efficiencies. Nelson Tsay, President of AIS, adds, “AIS HMIs and operator interface panels minimize the risk of disruption in the production process, reduce overall downtime and allow for fewer operators to manage more information with less machine or application specific knowledge.”

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
