Michael J Bryant, PI Deputy Chairman

In recent years it has been a pleasure to watch GE Intelligent Platforms join PI North America and participate in PI Working Groups at an international level helping develop the PROFINET specifications. Recently we welcomed Bernie Anger of GE Control and Communication Systems to our Board of Directors. Now, a further chapter in this exciting story is unfolding as GE Intelligent Platforms announces plans for a series of technology seminars based on their PROFINET applications. These plans are truly global and in this issue you can read about the North American venues decided so far (there are 60!). China dates have been added too, and European and Australian events are to be announced shortly. I am truly delighted that GE Intelligent Platforms is demonstrating its commitment to PROFINET like this. It's further proof that PROFINET is on the way to achieving the same status in automation as PROFIBUS did before it.
