This unit covers the setting up and configuring human machine interface and industrial networks for process control systems to meet performance standards. This encompasses the adoption of process control schemes that meet safety and process requirements, selection of control equipment and interconnecting cabling and tubing/piping based on calculated and deemed-to-comply arrangements.
