José M. Rivera has accepted the position of CEO for the Control System Integrators Association (CSIA) and will assume the role starting March 23. Courtesy: CSIAControl System Integrators Association (CSIA) CEO José Rivera said the organization is collaborating with the Manufacturing Enterprise Solutions Association (MESA) on an initiative around smart manufacturing. Smart manufacturing involves aligning information and communication technologies with U.S. manufacturers across the country to manage their energy, productivity and costs in real time.

"MESA will contribute through their capabilities around best practices for the real-life deployment of information technology, providing real-time visibility into the production process and in particular on nontechnical deliverables," Rivera said. "CSIA will offer best practices for successful system integration. We are working together to provide our services towards this great opportunity."

Interconnectivity is especially important as the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) becomes more common on the plant floor for automation professionals.

Rivera said, "This will be driven in part by the Internet of Things (IoT), increasing regulation involving physical and cyber security, traceability requirements and more. In addition, there is an overall need to direct information to those that can act on it, especially the factory floor for manufacturing."
