* We have interest in implementing the Fieldbus Foundation in our Power Plant. I want to know if YOKOGAWA has Power Plant in Fieldbus Foundation application or who else has a similar
Fieldbus Foundation application.

* Does anybody know if any magazine of control has published who are the world automation leaders.
