To survive in the modern competitive business era, it is mandatory to use latest technology and understand modern industrial requirement to improve quality and quantity of product that we are manufacturing. Now a day’s automation technology provides an integrated, flexible and low-cost system platform, it contains various elements that perform a wide variety of functions like controlling, monitoring, and supervising to the industrial processes.
Automation is composed of two Greek words Auto means self, Motos meansmoving, hence if a process of moving (any devices/machineries) is self directed is called as Automation. Industrial automation includes use of various self controlling devices (PLCs/PACs/PC etc.) to operate industrial process and machineries. The automation technology has become back bone of modern industries, because by using Automation technology not only the quality and quantity of products have been maximized, but also it reduces the labor cost, risk factor and manufacturing time.
