Control Engineering Video on ISA108

Peter Welander of Control Engineering magazine interviewed Herman Storey and myself about ISA108 after our face to face meeting at the ARC Orlando Forum the week of February 11.  We talk about some of the reasoning behind ISA 108, particularly the need for some coherent and easily shared work processes that can help end users take advantage of the diagnostic data coming from the huge installed base of intelligent field devices.  Remember, you cannot get the full lifecycle benefit out of intelligent devices unless you implement the right work processes!
