Abstract

Modern technical communications is an incredibly important subject because, without it, no commercial business would be able to survive in today's marketplaces. Communications in the technical sense ranges from links between computers in the commercial data processing world as a management tool, i.e. office communications, to communication between a number of machines in the production and manufacturing sphere, i.e. factory communications. An important aim is to overcome the schism that still exists between the two “worlds” of office and factory, because that is the only way in which available capacity can be fully utilized and the necessary flexibility achieved.
