In a conversation with Lisa Nelson, Vice President of Integrated Marketing and Customer Care for Emerson’s Measurement Solutions business, and Bridget Spencer, P.E., Department Manager Instrument Engineering and Design for Wood, we explore the various ways that today’s digital technology is changing and improving the engineering work process. Those changes include improving support, efficiency, data management and accuracy, and security. The most significant benefit is collaboration at all levels of the project-management and development process.
