The Connected Enterprise: From vision to implementation

In 2014, The Connected Enterprise was a vision. Today, three core platforms—Integrated Architecture, Intelligent Motor Control and solutions and services—are architected and designed to deliver the digital solution. 


Rockwell Automation advances the modern DCS

Last year, we differentiated PlantPAx by showing how it goes above and beyond the traditional DCS. Now, with release 4.0 coming out in March, 2016, we have made many improvements.


Payoffs and trade-offs on Connected Enterprise journey

Who wouldn't want to be part of a safer, more efficient and more profitable enterprise? The vision may be clear, but there are as many paths forward as there are companies setting out to become one.

Watch this video to learn how communication among machines, processes, plants and the supply chain creates flexible, productive manufacturing systems.

Data analytics still need the human touch

Data is everywhere, and many manufacturers have been collecting it for decades. But what are they doing with it? Can you collect enough data to create an analysis algorithm that replaces the need for human intervention?


MPC saves energy at oilseed processing plant

Advanced process control can improve yield, reduce energy consumption, improve quality and consistency and more. Model predictive control on an oilseed desolventizer/toaster saves more than $150,000 a year. 


Cybersecurity makes The Connected Enterprise possible

One of the key sticking points in moving forward in The Connected Enterprise is cybersecurity, but a lot of collaboration and skills will be needed to make it happen, and none of us can do it alone.
