In Big System for the Small I have pointedly argued that small units often need the same methods and tools as the industry giants. This is definitely true in process and manufacturing engineering and automation.
And that it is a matter of information and awareness creation. I promised to organize a SystemModeler Seminar. Here it is. New Technologies in System Modeling and Simulation. An opportunity to hear from a top researcher and technology providers and implementers on the latest advances of platforms for revolutionizing engineering and controlling complex systems.
