Additional database help is available here


Oak Brook, IL - Three additional stories related to the June 2002 Control Engineering article, ''How to Get the Most from a Database,'' were published at Control Engineering Online recently.


''Six tips for designing a manufacturing database'' includes practical advice about organizing information, from Jeff Buck, system architect, Rockwell Automation.

''Database connections provide ways and means'' shows how an Opto 22 application allows data to flow in two directions and how Northwest Analytical software integrates data.

The original article in the print edition, ''How to Get the Most from a Database,'' explains how databases record, analyze and relay plant-floor information, often behind the scenes. It also offers advice on ''how to make your database work for you, rather than the other way around.''
