The integrity of process manufacturing begins with accurate and reliable data from the field. Without it, plant operators and engineers can’t see what’s going on in their processes.

"The aim is to achieve an essential view, so our customers can perform better and operate more safely,” Matthias Altendorf, CEO of process instrumentation leader Endress+Hauser Group said. "Sometimes we have a good view, and sometimes good views begin to fade.”

Either way, there’s plenty of room for improvement in Altendorf’s view.

Today, sensor information needs to travel further than to the control system or maintenance shop, Altendorf contended, and business requirements and opportunities are driving that data up into the enterprise.
