In the January issue of Automation World, my article for the magazine's Automation Team Department, Automation Profession Faces Transition into Complexity and Opportunity, focuses on the future of the automation profession.
I was able to leverage my 20 years of experience in automation to explore the transition that is currently taking place in the industry. Early in my career, I was privileged to be a member of the executive team at Panasonic Factory Automation. It was that position that gave me wide exposure me to the manufacturing and automation industries and ultimately led to my career covering the field as a journalist. Subsequently, I have written for virtually every major trade publication in the field including Automation World, Managing Automation, Manufacturing Systems (now known as Manufacturing Business Technology), and Control, to name a few.
