It's that time of year when we look for a few industrial machine controls engineers who might like to write experience-based short articles for Control Design in their 'spare' time.
You automation component supplier company employees are not eligible, but you certainly can encourage a customer to give it a try and maybe they'll say something nice about you. Don't sweat it if your not not an experienced writer. That's what editors are for. Want examples? Read the OEMInsight columns at http://www.controldesign.com/voices/OEM_insight.html to find out what your peers have done in the past to share best practices, lessons learned, etc.
Get in touch with me or managing editor Aaron hand and we'll fill you in.
