This Technical Committee focuses on  Cost Oriented Automation approaches or architectures. In a large number of applications, (industrial production, agricultural, transportation, education, ...) the automatization is accomplished with an important objective, that to reduce the costs.

Issues involved in the design of low cost oriented systems integrate human skill and technical solutions. Approaches include management, flow production support, decentralized process control stratégies, remote collaboration, man-in-the-loop, human machine interface, advanced maintenance, ... Applications concerns as well as Large Enterprises than Small and Medium Enterprises.
