The top 5 most read articles online, from May 8-14 for Control Engineering, covered project scope expectations, DCS migration, measuring project quality, data center infrastructure, and the programmable controller's origins. Links to each article below. 

1. Manage expectations for a project scope

When a client and system integrator share goals, the potential for success is maximized for a scope project if the expectations are managed and the project has a clear vision. 

2. Four things to remember about DCS migration

Whether it’s a refinery, chemical plant, or other process-related facility, the primary control system must operate efficiently, safely, and economically. If it doesn’t, perhaps it’s time for an upgrade.

3. Defining and measuring project quality 

Using a standardized methodology to define project quality ensures deliverables fit customer specifications and receive high customer satisfaction when managing projects.

4. The evolution of data center infrastructure in North America

Data centers have become increasingly important under the Industrial Internet of Things revolution. Physical and cybersecurity have to be assessed and continuously improved. What are the most crucial considerations for the IT infrastructure of a data center?

5. Origins of the programmable controller and its potential future

The programmable logic controller (PLC) went through a lot of trial-and-error in its early inception. It has continued to develop since the 1970's and the market is now converging toward Ethernet/IP-based control networks.

The list was developed using CFE Media's web analytics for stories viewed on controleng.com, May 8-14, for articles published within the last two months.
