Automation and Process Control projects are challenging and can often invoke fear for the newly appointed Automation Project Manager (APM) or Project Engineer in charge.

In addition to all the usual challenges of any project, this particular type of project is often even more complex. This is the result of a variety of reasons including: integration of multiple engineering disciplines (software, computer systems, networks, and instrumentation), high dependency on User Requirements of disciplines outside of automation, integration of requirements from many areas (business, engineering, safety, environmental), delays in other areas of the project that propagate over into the automation area, new technology or technology constraints, and many more.
