Editorial Opportunities of a world market In the scope of globalisation, we are experiencing increased networking across disciplines, starting from engineering through product development and construction to production processes, even beyond the borders of companies and countries. This causes producers, customers and service providers to grow closer together. Maintenance can be performed remotely via Condition Monitoring, software updates can be implemented via the internet and smartly produced products at the end customer‘s site can submit specific data and thus trigger web-based actions. If the prerequisites for such exchange of data are created and the corresponding network structures are available, companies around the world can profit from each other. As a German magazine with an international focus, we present examples of globally acting companies, site-comprehensive production processes and developments of global interest, such as embedded systems and the area of automation technology, in our current issue of AUTOMATION TECHNOLOGIES. Looking beyond country borders, we are seeing networked structures once again. China has been the second-largest economy in the world, with its capital Beijing, again, being one of the country‘s largest industrial centers. Focussing on the automation market in China, Industrial Automation Show IA BEIJING, a sub-show of Hannover Messe, offers great opportunities to get to know new technologies and solutions. The IA BEIJING takes place from 7 - 9 May 2014 and has already become the largest industrial automation show in northern China with a high degree of internationalism as well as an immense potential for further development. Read more about the highlights of the exhibition in our magazine and take the advantage of the opportunities of a world market that is enjoying dynamic growth.
