The online Control Engineering Automation Integrator Guide www.controleng.com/integrators has a multi-parameter search, allowing users or original equipment manufacturers to narrow the field of integrators appropriate to their needs. Industries served is one of the parameters. Also see automation system integrator statistics on:
- Annual revenue ;
- Corporate affiliations ;
- Engineering specialties ;
- Geographic areas served ;
- Industries served;
- Product experience; and
- Professional affiliations.
