Lean Automation: Integrated Hardware

Control can occur in many devices in many locations: Desktop computers, industrial PCs, loop controllers, programmable logic controllers, programmable automation controllers, operator interfaces, human-machine interface, embedded controllers, network or I/O-based controller, board-level controllers, and systems on a chip. Lean thinking in automation hardware: Off-the-shelf industrial designs can require less integration and increase reliability compared to using commercial designs. Pre-integrated industrial controllers and human-machine interface units can save time.
