Control Station announces 2017 manufacturing training schedule

November 30, 2016 Control Station announced its 2017 training schedule which targets major manufacturing centers located across North America and Europe.  Training workshops will be delivered in collaboration with the company’s Solution Partners and Product Distributors, and they will emphasize techniques for optimizing a production facility’s regulatory control systems.

Demand for training has rebounded as manufacturing and other industry sectors have pulled through the Global Recession and have adjusted to the current economic conditions.  The recession which culminated in 2009 forced many manufacturers to reduce staffing levels and decrease training spending.  Recent analysis published by Deloitte Consulting LLP points to steady year-over-year increases in training spending since the recession both in the United States and globally.  Specifically the report shows that spending increased by 26% over a five year period to over $70 billion in the US and over $130 billion worldwide. 

The workshops offered by Control Station and its partners will be highly interactive and will focus on techniques for optimizing the many PID controllers that regulate production processes.  Workshops will be multi-day sessions based either largely or entirely on the company’s Practical Process Control – a software- and simulation-based curriculum that is used widely by leading process manufacturers and academic institutions.  Each workshop will be designed to equip engineers and technicians with skills that can be applied immediately toward the optimization of their facility’s PID controllers.

Workshops will be concentrated in North America and Europe, and they will be hosted near major process manufacturing centers.  Each workshop will be delivered by Control Station or a member of its growing Solution Partners community which includes both Control Specialists Ltd. and Ludan Engineering.  The following are among the 2017 training locations:

Control Station’s Practical Process Control curriculum focuses on PID control and addresses the unique information needs of process manufacturing staff.  The content of these theory-based workshops is readily customizable to cater to environments that are typical of the Petrochemicals, Power, Food & Beverage, and Basic Materials sectors.  In addition to theory-based workshops the company offers an array of application-based training workshops.  These services fully complement Control Station’s award-winning software technologies that monitor and optimize the performance of regulatory control systems.
