Course Description

SMART is a buzz word today. Every day one comes across news on Smartphones, Smart Cars, Smart appliances & so on. But what one means by SMART? For a common man, anything which has intelligence is SMART.

But what is SMART Instrumentation in the Industry & what is expected from this SMART Instrumentation? The goal of any business is to earn the profit. To any plant or manufacturing Industry, SMART Instrumentation means it has to contribute in enhanced Productivity & Profits with the same equipment & processes. The instrumentation Industry has adopted the latest Electronic & IT Technologies to be SMART. With this state of art techniques, processes are operating now close to the equipment tolerances with improved functionality & operational safety.

Companies are now beginning to understand & quantify the return on Investment by incorporating the SMART Technologies, such as SMART Sensors & Transmitters, Enterprise-wide open real-time Control & Data Acquisition Systems, Advanced Analytics & their tangible & non-tangible benefits. There are many success stories on how millions are saved by revamping the field Instrumentation to SMART or Upgrading to modern DCS or Installation of Functional Safety Systems.

However the Engineers today also need to be smart enough to understand & adapt to these technologies to enhance their Instrumentation & Control systems to SMART functionality. This programme is an endeavor in this direction. It covers the concept of the SMART Instrumentation Systems, the Hardware & Software technology therein, Modern Control Systems & the latest trends, with discussion on case studies & success stories.
