Industrial Automation is the use of control systems such as computers to control industrial machinery and processes to replace human operators. Automation plays an important role in the global economy and in daily experience. PLCs are often used to synchronize the flow of inputs from physical sensors and other events with the flow of outputs to actuators and events. This leads to precisely controlled actions that permit a tight control of almost any industrial process.
