2014 Control Design Readers' Choice Awards Voting Ending This Friday!

Voting is ending soon.  Hurry up and place your vote if you want your voice heard!

And thanks again for those who have shared their knowledge. Based on previous results, the survey takes less than 10 minutes, and this year's version is a bit shorter. You can use more than one session to complete the questionnaire if you have to.

We don't provide you with a list of companies to choose from because we want you to make your selections based on your experience, not company name recognition. Please complete as much of the survey as your experience allows. The bigger the response, the more valid and useful the data for all of us. But if you don't have any meaningful experience with a particular product category, just skip it.

We'll publish the results in the September issue and on ControlDesign.com

At the end of the ballot, as a token of our appreciation, you'll be able to enter a drawing for a $100 gift card (one drawn for every 50 completed questionnaires)! And we'll send you an advance copy of the results if you'd like.

Check your email account for your invitation to participate in our Readers' Choice Award voting and a link to the ballot.. Complete as much of the survey as your experience allows.

If you think the automation suppliers don't pay attention to these results, you're mistaken. You get the full attention of the vendors through the results of this survey by letting them know which companies are meeting your needs and [by their absence] which ones are not. The vendors really do get a little anxious every year to see how the results turn out.

Thanks for helping out. As usual, vendors are ineligible to vote and those responses will be discarded.

If you're a machine builder or system integrator and you didn't receive your invitation, contact Editor in Chief Joe Feeley.
