So-called Big Data can yield actionable information by means of asset and process analytics. Courtesy: TrendMinerThe top 5 most read articles online, from Sept. 24-30 for Control Engineering covered process analytics, cloud control and cloud-based solutions, industrial wireless networks, and LTE networks not being IIoT ready. Links to each article below.

1. Use process analytics effectively

Pattern recognition software leverages historian data to automate information gathering and make process analytics more efficient and accurate.

2. How much control goes to the cloud?

Cloud computing is gaining ground as industrial plants become more efficient, but it’s important to recognize where computing is needed and where it should be taking place.

3. Cloud-based software solutions for industrial applications

Cover Story: Choosing cloud-based software or a combined approach with an on-site strategy may result in cost savings, improved operational efficiencies, and enhanced security.

4. Self-organizing versus managed industrial wireless networks

ISA 100.11a and WirelessHART standards reflect contrasting attitudes toward network management and these standards impact operational effectiveness.

5. Four reasons why LTE networks are not IIoT-ready 

As well as four reasons why kinetic mesh is a better broadband solution for the manufacturing industry.

The list was developed using CFE Media’s web analytics for stories viewed on controleng.com, Sept. 24-30, for articles published within the last two months.
