Part of the Schriftenreihe der Wissenschaftlichen Landesakademie für Niederösterreich book series (AKADNIEDERÖSTER)


The most common problems and the corresponding success factors occurring in computer-based automation projects are discussed, as they are seen from within a department participating itself in research, development and applications in Slovenia. As a result of experience, recommendations and actions are proposed about where to get help and how to take remedial actions in automation problems.
