Up to Speed: How to Maximize Efficiency of Control System Applications and Processes

I always want the latest tablet or cell phone because it has advanced capabilities and the best communication experience—think about the transition from 3G to 4G. There are higher levels of computing resources to crunch numbers, run algorithms, and enable you to better communicate machine to machine to generate more productivity.

It works the same with control systems. To deliver better performance those control systems have to run better algorithms and collect data faster to tighten control loops.  By adding performance to the controllers, they can do that in a better way.
