Siemens partners with Control Engineering magazine to produce FactoryVisionTM, an online, interactive medium for delivering engineering information


FactoryVisionTM helps engineers find solutions for today's challenges through a state-of-the-art portal containing products, applications, and live tutorial sessions

Hosted by Control Engineering, Siemens’s FactoryVisionTMpresents different overviews of live control and HMI applications from an end user, original equipment manufacturer, system integrator, and supplier point of view. The engaging Flash technology interface gives each engineer a unique automation experience with a customized system as his/her final destination. FactoryVisionTMshows how integrated control and HMI systems enable the engineer to visualize his/her factory at its full capabilities.

FactoryVisionTMoffers information on manufacturing applications for control and visualization, such as localized machine control, control rooms, assembly and test, water treatment, and remote access via the Web. New this month, learn about challenges and technologies utilized to implement safety solutions in car manufacturing and high speed packaging factories.Information is updated monthly, with new case studies, applications, industry trends and a wealth of other information.
