The top 5 most read articles online, from Sept. 13-19, 2021, for Control Engineering covered Engineering Leaders Under 40, digital transformation ROI, scaling machine learning, linear servo motors and the factory of the future. Links to each article below.

1. Engineering Leaders Under 40, Class of 2021

Meet the engineers who are exceeding expectations and improving operations as the COVID-19 pandemic continues.

2. How to calculate digital transformation ROI

Simplify and prioritize the digital vision for smart factory upgrades and consider hard and soft savings in the return calculations.

3. Scaling machine learning for the manufacturing masses

Enabling access to machine learning algorithms in easy-to-use advanced analytics applications accelerates insights in process data. A specialty chemical manufacturer used ML tools to predict over 90% of quality deviations and save more than $500,000 per year in quality downgrades.

4. Choosing linear servo motors for the right application

There are several types of linear servo motors and knowing the strengths and weaknesses of each, along with the application they’re best-suited for, is critical.

5. Factory of the future: How to vitalize digital transformation

See five attributes of the factory of the future. Information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT) organizations, hardware and software synergy should be part of the roadmap.

The list was developed using CFE Media’s web analytics for stories viewed on controleng.com, Sept. 13-19, 2021, for articles published within the last two months.
