The top 5 most read articles online, from March 28 to April 3, 2022, for Control Engineering covered electron correlations in graphene, Engineers’ Choice winners, information control, edge technologies and advanced process controls. Links to each article below.

1. 2D material electron correlation found in graphene

Researchers have found direct evidence of electron correlations in a two-dimensional material called ABC trilayer graphene.

2. Spotlight on Innovation: 2022 Engineers’ Choice Awards

Control Engineering announces the best automation, control and instrumentation products in the 19 categories of the annual Engineers’ Choice Awards program.

3. How automation can bolster information control in a factory

Information flow and control on the factory floor can improve automation and help manufacturers make better decisions.

4. Edge technologies enable Industry 4.0

Organizations using Industry 4.0 with edge technologies gain benefits such as lower costs, faster speeds, easier troubleshooting and others.

5. Understanding the critical role of metrics for advanced process controls

Advanced process controls (APC) requires appropriate metrics, or key performance indicators (KPIs) to ensure safe, efficient operations. Alarms, relief valves, safety systems and APC need monitoring. Learn five good APC metrics, the missing metric and four recommended practices for APC metrics.

The list was developed using CFE Media’s web analytics for stories viewed on, Mar. 28 to Apr. 3, 2022, for articles published within the last two months.
