A growing working relationship between three standards—the PC, Windows, and Interbus—is becoming the basis of a new open infrastructure for connecting the management office with the production floor. To help participants handle this trend, Interbus Club recently joined with IBM and Microsoft to launch a new international conference called "pc&automation" scheduled for March 26-27 in Paris. Conference organizers say manufacturers and end-users from both the administration and plant floor worlds will come together for the first time in Europe to discuss universal solutions from sensors to management. They add that pc&automation will provide technical background data to allow more efficient use of PCs in factories. So far, the conference will feature speakers from Daimler-Benz, Radisys, VenturCom, and Wonderware as well as a small exhibition of international products.
