Control Engineering’s top 5 content over the past week covered HMI and SCADA systems, MQTT, SI Giants, real-time data and more. Links to each article below.

1. HMI/SCADA systems: Upgrade your migration

When upgrading human-machine interface (HMI) and supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) software, don’t just create a new version of the old. Enable workers with advanced HMI/SCADA capabilities after migration. See five tips for optimizing HMI/SCADA screens.

2. Leveraging MQTT, industrial edge devices in automation projects

Message queuing telemetry transport (MQTT) and industrial edge devices remove systemic limitations, communicate more data and improve system security for IIoT implementations.

3. SI Giants 2023 average system integration revenue increases

Supply chain, staffing and COVID-19 are main concerns among SI Giant system integrators.

4. Leveraging real-time data across the enterprise

A system integrator leveraged enterprise resource planning (ERP) products to help a packaging client realize major gains and meet growing demand by giving them access to real-time data.

5. Upgrading ventilation equipment systems in automotive tunnels

An integration project required upgrading legacy equipment in a tunnel that sees thousands of vehicles driving through every day without causing potential safety issues.

The list was developed using CFE Media’s web analytics for stories viewed on, November 28 to December 4, 2022, for articles published within the last two months.
