Control Engineering’s top 5 content over the past week covered edge platforms, alarm design, smart energy measurements, plant instrumentation and more. Links to each article below.

1. Evaluating edge as a platform

By standardizing on complete edge platforms, end users are simplifying edge software and hardware delivery, development, deployment, and support, while streamlining operations. See four edge platform building blocks and four concerns.

2. Key strategies for improving alarm design and management

Coupling strategic engineering techniques with integrated management software helps unlock best-in-class alarm solutions. See five rules of alarm relevancy, three examples.

3. Smarter energy measurements, faster, using AI

Engineers use artificial intelligence (AI) to magnify domain expertise and significantly cut time to end user.

4. Plant instrumentation and controls: Issues and drivers

Instrumentation and controls (I&C) operators are dealing with aging equipment that doesn’t allow them to take advantage of modern technology’s benefits, which can give them access to real-time information that allows them to make better decisions.

5. Engineering Leaders Under 40, Class of 2022
