ROCKWELL Automation is helping to bring an enhanced perspective to the factory floor with two new visualisation training courses.
Addressing two of the company's latest human-machine-interface (HMI) software products, RSView Machine Edition (ME) and RSView Supervisory Edition (SE), the interactive courses will provide practical insights into the next-generation machine-level and distributed HMI runtime environments respectively.
The new courses are part of a complete program of Rockwell training courses -- from programmable controllers to condition-based monitoring -- scheduled throughout the second half of 2003.
The three-day 'RSView ME' and four-day 'RSView SE' visualisation courses are designed primarily for plant engineers, control specialists and technicians.
Consisting of a blend of presentations with 'hands-on' lab assignments, the courses emphasise the application of concepts to an industrial setting.
"The new RSView ME and RSView SE courses will provide customers with the skills necessary to create highly functional HMI applications for industrial machines and process control," said Amber Hurley, training services manager Rockwell Automation Australia.
The training courses coincide with the recent launch of the company's ViewAnyWare strategy: a suite of products providing fully-scalable and flexible HMI architecture for all visualisation applications.
Specifically, the new courses introduce students to the workings of the common development environment, RSView Studio.
"With the launch of ViewAnyWare, we realised that there would also be a big need for training, especially for people new to the software," said Hurley. "And although they are software-based, the courses will be supported by all the latest HMI hardware as well."
