Lesson 1E – Control Systems in Discrete Manufacturing & Process Industries

This lesson explains how control systems differ depending upon whether a plant is manufacturing units of a product (cars, books, phones) or volumes of a product (beverages, beer, pharmaceuticals).

Learning Objectives
  • Explain the difference between discrete manufacturing and process industries
  • Explain the difference between continuous (analog) and discrete variables
  • Explain the difference between continuous and discrete control
  • Compare and contrast control systems in discrete manufacturing and process industries
