Meanwhile, we are in an unprecedented age of rapidly advancing technologies. They present a quandary to a prospective control system user. In light of the new technologies, will todayâs BPCS architectures quickly find themselves obsolete? Or are there ways to evolve the control system to work with analytics, artificial intelligence, digital twins, machine learning, and âInternet of thingsâ (IoT) architectures that comprise a new generation of sensors, wireless networks and cloud-based services?
Furthermore, will the BPCS support the digital transformation that your company has been planning and could it evolve into an open system?
This presentation will review todayâs BPCS and safety technologies, describe the emerging âIoTâ technologies and provide a roadmap to make the best of the latter while additionally evolving to support open architecture initiatives such as the Open Process Automation Forum (OPAF) O-PAS standard.
