1. Control Engineering hot topics, June 2022

Control Engineering’s most clicked articles in June 2022 included stories on the Career and Salary Survey, leveraging IIoT, HMI design tips and more. Miss something? You can catch up here.

2. Leveraging IIoT for process optimization, modernization

Industrial facilities need combined production and maintenance strategies using the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and digital twin tools to minimize unscheduled shutdowns and optimize product quality while cost-effectively using existing operations, maintenance and engineering resources.

3. Control Engineering Career and Salary Survey, 2022

Solve the workforce challenge: Automate, innovate, hire and retain great workers. Lack of skilled workers, materials and the economy are biggest threats to manufacturing. Lack of available skilled workers jumped from 37% in 2021 to 57% in 2022.

4. When designing HMI/SCADA, consider many factors

User abilities, skill levels, future plans, needs of stakeholders, and other items should be explored. See a system integrator’s advice and seven SCADA system integration/design questions to ask.

5. Advice on meeting engineering recruiting goals

There is a major push by system integrators and other engineering firms to find qualified talent, but the COVID-19 pandemic has created a shift in many ways. Two experts offer advice on finding the right engineering talent.

The list was developed using CFE Media’s web analytics for stories viewed on controleng.com, July 4-10, 2022, for articles published within the last two months.
