Workforce: Automation as a Profession

Dean Ford, Vice President Automation and Information Solutions at Glenmount Global Solutions, explains how automation has become a profession, not just a technology, and what that means to engineers across industry.

In this video presentation from The Automation Conference 2012, Ford explains how automation has progressed from being a manufacturing technology tool to a bona fide profession—one that is still largely unrecognized as such. To remedy this, Ford explains how various groups, including ISA and the Automation Federation, are working to increase awareness of automation as a recognized profession to ensure development of a workforce with the capabilities needed by industry today and in the coming years.
