System integration is defined in engineering as the process of bringing together the component sub-systems into one system and ensuring that the subsystems function together as a whole, and in information technology as the process of linking together different computing systems and software applications physically or functionally, to act as a coordinated system.
The system integrator integrates discrete systems utilizing a variety of techniques such as computer networking, enterprise application integration, business process management or manual programming.
System integration involves integrating existing, often disparate systems in such a way “that focuses on increasing value to the customer (e.g., improved product quality and performance) while at the same time providing value to the company (e.g., reducing operational costs and improving response time).
A systems integrator is a company or person that specializes in bringing together component subsystems into a whole and ensuring that those subsystems function together, a practice known as system integration.
In the modern world connected by Internet, the role of system integration engineers is important: more and more systems are designed to connect, both within the system under construction and to systems that are already deployed.
System integrators also solve problems of automation. System integrators may work in many fields but the term is generally used in the information technology, automation, robotics, manufacturing, computer networking, the defense industry, the healthcare industry, the medical device industry, enterprise application integration, business process management or manual computer programming.
AB Controls can integrate data acquisition, vision, motion control, robotics, statistical process control, and other sub-systems into one seamless structure.
In today’s manufacturing there is often a need to integrate various devices into a working and integrated system. there is often a need to integrate various devices, instruments, sub-systems, control systems, test equipment etc. to create a seamless system that works as one.
The “glue” to make it all work together is software. What is needed is a multi-disciplinary understanding of the whole process. That’s where we can help. We offer full service system integration: this means integration of mechanical systems, electrical/electronic and software to create a completely integrated system.
Not only can we integrate systems, we can also help you specify systems. if you are wondering which instruments to use and integrate towards a certain outcome, we can help you choose the right components.
