Manufacturing today requires mobility. But mobility can bring with it a complex supporting infrastructure. It requires networking hardware and software, devices to connect to the infrastructure, applications to run on the devices, and processes and procedures to work effectively, safely and securely. Mark T. Hoske, content manager and editor with Control Engineering, will explain mobility trends based on Control Engineering research and discuss the types of mobile engineering applications available among 225 categorized in editorial coverage. Harry Forbes, senior analyst at ARC Advisory Group, will explain basic wireless mobility infrastructures, types of hardware and software needed, and the challenges and advantages wireless mobility offers to end-users, providing examples.

Hoske, webcast moderator, and content manager for Control Engineering since 1994.
  • MARK HOSKETITLE SLIDE FOR MARK TO START PRESENTATION **SLIDES 7-19 ARE MARK’S SLIDES**
  • MARK HOSKEOctober 2013, Control Engineering received 200 responses from those who buy, specify, use, connect with, or support mobility, Ethernet, or wireless technologies. Here are some of the findings. Key products integrating with mobility, Ethernet, and wireless include industrial computers and controllers, HMIs, alarms, and networking hardware. Most respondents had more than 10 years of experience. I want to go over some finding in more detail.
  • MARK HOSKEThe top three uses for mobility devices, are, as might be expected, work email, connecting to company systems, and Internet use. But then look at the next five uses: more than half use mobile devices for monitoring, controls or instrumentation. 45% get alarms. More than 40% use mobile devices for configuration of automation, controls, and instrumentation. More than one third use mobile devices for reference or training. And more than one third use mobility devices for controlling automation, controls, or instrumentation. One third use mobility for control. Just five years ago, I recall people saying that would never happen.
  • MARK HOSKEThese people have a say in what kinds of applications they’re using. More than half of respondents said they have some say in the work-related mobile applications they use.
  • MARK HOSKETop benefits of mobility technologies include data access, productivity increases, time savings, cost savings, and ease of use. Effective maintenance and better asset management were mention next.
  • MARK HOSKEChallenges in the way of wider adoption of mobility include lack of knowledge, lack of training, and security concerns. Lack of business case, budget for capital investment and for system integration are among other concerns slowing adoption.
  • MARK HOSKEChallenges aren’t stopping investments, and here’s why. There’s a strong correlation between mobility products and services spending and outlook for productivity. Half of the survey respondents expected an increase in mobility products and services over the next year, about an equal percentage expected higher productivity as a result.
  • MARK HOSKEAfter that research was conducted, Control Engineering  did an analysis of 225 mobility applications for engineers in March 2014. The tally showed that of the 225 applications, 38% were for Google Android operating system and 62% of Apple iOS.
  • MARK HOSKERanked by types, reference applications have just over one quarter of the total, followed by one fifth for calculator, 16% productivity, 12% for utilities, followed by, in the single digits, business, instrumentation, catalog, tools, and suite applications.
  • MARK HOSKEBy application types, the top five for each operating system (OS) ranked equally. The top five types are reference apps, followed by calculator apps, productivity apps, utilities, and then business-related applications.Tools-related applications are slightly more common in Google Android operating system; and catalog applications are more common in the Apple iOS.
  • MARK HOSKELooking beyond the types of applications, into more detailed categories, general engineering was the runaway favorite with 62, about 28% of the total. About half that many were HVAC and electrical in nature. Control methods, file preview, business administration, and education categories round out those in the double digits. Among the leading categories more than twice as many apps were available in iOS for HVAC and for control methods as compared to the Android operating system. Electrical apps, 16 for each operating system, accounted for nearly one fifth of the Android apps by category, and just 11% of the iOS apps. While there is no category for specifically for HMI, SCADA, and visualization, there are 10 total in that area, of 225 total. I counted.
  • MARK HOSKEAmong the 225 applications, 151 (67%) are free. Among 74 apps with a fee:43 are iOS (58%) and 31 are Android$10.48 is the average cost$4.99 is the median (and mode) cost$149.99 is the highest one (a SCADA and HMI application)$0.99 is the lowest (5 apps)Less than $800 would buy all 74 of the paid apps $776 is the sum of the paid apps, and 80% about $621 are for the 43 iOS apps.
  • MARK HOSKE More than half use mobile devices for monitoring, controls or instrumentation; alarms, configuration, training, and control are more than one third. Top benefits of mobility technologies: Data access, productivity increases, time savings, cost savings, and ease of use. Challenges in the way of wide use include lack of knowledge, lack of training, and security concerns. Spending on mobility products and services spending and outlook for productivity are strongly correlated. Major mobility application types are: Reference, calculator, and utilities, totaling more than half. 2/3 of apps are free; the average price of the paid apps was about $10, $5 was the median. Prices varied widely, up to $150. Anecdotally, it’s my observation that the number of mobile engineering applications is growing quickly. In the 2 weeks between this analysis and when we posted the findings, we found 15 more applications. Those in the audience may type in questions anytime; we’ll get to them at the end. Harry, over to you, now.
  • TITLE SLIDE FOR HARRY TO START PRESENTATION **SLIDES 20-40 ARE HARRY’S SLIDES**
