1. Automation system retrofit transforms 175-ton hydraulic forming press

Application Update: In less than one month, a rebuild automates press operations to increase production rates and improve quality.

2. Five key considerations for improving HMI graphics during a control system migration

Some basic planning can avoid confused operators and lost opportunities for improvements during a DCS migration project.

3. Managing the DCS upgrade

The right process can take out the guesswork and lead to a successful migration.

4. Safety does not come out of a box

The solution to making your process plant a safer place isn't something you can buy. Much of it depends on changing the ways your people work and think.

5. Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity: An explanation of the NIST framework

NIST's Vicky Yan Pillitteri, at the 2014 ARC Forum, discussed the NIST Cybersecurity Framework, and today's release of the Executive Order 13636, Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity.

The list was developed using CFE Media's web analytics for stories viewed on www.controleng.com, Feb. 17-23, 2014, for articles published within the last two months.
