If you're about to embark on a control system migration project, the best thing you can do is prepare. Indeed, there are many complexities to consider with any migration project. Wanting to help future generations, Daniel Roessler wrote the book, Control System Migrations: A Practical Project Management Handbook (Momentum Press, 2013).
"As experienced engineers, we aren't doing an effective job passing along the value of our experiences to younger engineers," says Roessler. "Hopefully this book will be helpful . . . to be a resource where they can gain experience." This handbook proves useful for seasoned engineers, too.
Roessler tells Senior Digital Editor Traci Purdum the reasons behind his methodology and how readers should use this book. He also reveals his a-ha moments during the writing process and what an optimal migration team should look like.
Roessler has a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin. His career, spanning over 20 years, began as a process control engineer and project manager for an end-user company in the chemical and polymer industries. He also worked as a system integrator and later in business development and marketing positions for several process automation vendors providing hardware, software and automation service solutions to the process industries.
He is currently a freelance writer and also principal consultant for DANR Consulting. For additional information, email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
