  • Content Description: The process industries provide many opportunities where computers can be used to assist in the reduction of energy use. The areas are monitoring, analysis, control, and optimization. Since the process industries consist of a variety of combinations of specialized technology, the plants are not suitable for mass produced software which would be broadly applicable. Software development for this industry requires a careful step-by-step analysis of specific applications in close cooperation with industry specialists. Once installed and operating, however, the continuous high throughput nature of manufacturing in those industries creates a situation where applied computer technology can provide very large returns on investment.
