As manufacturers leverage existing plant floor automation to implement additional systems, the use of Rugged Tablet PC systems to monitor and control industrial, infrastructure and facility-based processes (supervisory control and data acquisition) continues to evolve. Since computing and communications technology comes in portable and durable form factors, more plant operations are using mobile computers to improve quality and process reliability, provide greater decision capability, and reduce costs. Manufacturers are finding that rugged mobile computers have advantages over fixed computers or low-cost, non-rugged devices because they can go anywhere, have full computing capability and handle the demands inherent in a manufacturing environment over a long life.
