ISA Releases Automation and Control Systems Economics Book
Research Triangle Park, NC (6 March 2007) - ISA recently published a newly revised version of the popular "Automation and Control Systems Economics" by Paul G. Friedmann.
"Automation and Control Systems Economics, 2nd Edition" covers the economic aspects of automation and process control like its predecessor, but expands on how the tools of economic and financial analysis can be applied to automation projects, especially those concerned with continuous processes.
Techniques are presented for making reasonable cost and benefit estimates and project evaluations. Uniquely designed for self-study, the book also provides new sections that extend application of economic and financial analysis to control of discontinuous processes, including batch and discrete parts manufacturing. A new glossary has also been added to help define economic terms.
