Technology in Action: The Evolution of Facility Management Technology
This is the fifth in a series of posts on key presentations from Emerson’s 2013 Technology in Action Conference.
Facility management technology has changed dramatically over the past couple decades. In a general session at our 2013 Technology in Action Conference (TAC), John Wallace, director of product management at Retail Solutions, discussed this evolution of technology and provided a glimpse into the future of where controller technology is heading.
In addition to discussing the history of facility management systems and the various control strategies employed by retailers globally, TAC attendees also heard from a supermarket end user, Steve Mitchell, director of mechanical engineering at King Kullen, on his experience with these technologies over the last 30 years.
Headquartered in New York, King Kullen is known as “America’s first supermarket” and currently operates 46 stores. Steve shared his experience with the progression of case controls over the years, showing attendees the value in changing your control architecture to reduce costs and achieve energy savings.
