Abstract -
An overview of Automated Industrial Plant and its architecture has been discussed briefly in this paper. The content herein is very educative at introductory stage to concept of Industrial Automation and Informative about latest trends in Industrial Automation. Automated Industrial Plant is more advanced when compared with IoT and can serve the function of a node in a global setup of IoT. However, an Automated Industrial Plant should serve as a precursor to IoT, by which certain underlying characteristics of Automated Industrial Plants can serve as solutions to a lot of research problems in IoT.
