Although the science of the PID loop has not changed substantially in 80 years, our Workshoptrack record of consistently achieving maximim performance from basic regulatory control is still not perfect. This webinar attempts to explore some of the non-technical issues associated with the industrial automation context which may be barriers to the ideal outcome.

The objective is to seed some thought provoking ideas and promote better collaboration within the industry sectors.

Training and education is an important and evolving challenge with the Univeristy of Auckland providing some details on recent developments.
