Fieldbus End User Adoption Trends Show Growing Acceptance
Process fieldbus in the form of Foundation Fieldbus H1 and HSE and
PROFIbus PA and DP have all moved into the mainstream of process
automation and are being installed in large plants for critical applications.
For many users fieldbus compatibility is becoming
a key criterion for control system selection.
ARC asked users, system integrators, and OEMs
about the types of fieldbus protocols they are deploying,
the kinds of applications where fieldbus is
being used, and the perceived value and estimated
payback of fieldbus technology. This Insight examines
some of the key results of our survey.

The challenges facing modern industry are different from those of the past.
Shareholders expect increased profitability and sustainable growth. Expanding
global markets lead to increased competition. These demands require that
companies find new ways to reduce operating costs, streamline and/or re-orient
workforces, accelerate delivery times, and develop innovative products.
Put another way, corporations are no longer seeking to maximize their operations,
but rather optimize their enterprise. Management's directives are clear: make it
cheaper…make it better…make it quicker…make it safer.
Meeting the challenges of the 21st century requires a new way of thinking. Industry
can no longer afford to rely on outdated strategies. Rather, it must break out of the
paradigms of the past and adopt new, enabling tools for continuous improvement.
