Each year, Control Design conducts its annual product research and buying habits survey to learn about the methods machine builders and system integrators are using when they do research on automation and control products. We've been seeing some of those trends change over the past few years.
One continual change we've been seeing is how industry professionals are using the web to help them do their jobs better. So this year, we changed the survey up a bit to to learn about methods and online tools machine builders and system integrators are using, for not only product research, but also problem solving.
As a thank you for your contribution, participants will earn a chance to win a $100 gift card via a drawing after completing the survey.
