In the book’s appendix are instructions on how access the book’s web site. This web site contains links to YouTube videos that show the solutions to the book’s workshops. At Emerson exchange we will have internet access and can thus will demonstrate the book’s web site as part of this meet the expert session. If you are at Emerson Exchange and have an interest in advanced control then Willy and I would like to invite you to attend our Advanced Control Foundation session on Friday, October 12th.
As mentioned in my blog last week, the book Advanced Control Foundation– Tools and Techniques to Improve Process Operation is being published by ISA and will be available for sale in the ISA bookstore at ISA Automation Week, September 24-27, 2012Orlando, FL and at Emerson Exchange, October 8-12, 2012, Also, starting in later September, 2012, the book may be purchased through Amazon and the ISA web site.
