    Abel I have stumbled on your site just looking for information. I think you have begun a great thing. I have been working for 6 years at a power plant at a hospital in Texas. Have been trying to learn DDC on my own. But now they have finally sent me and another fellow employee to school. Siemens. We are using the siemens insight with workstations. We are both hvac techs. but from old school. DDC we are familiar with but Siemens and automation with points and subpoints, etc. well I didn't grow up around this.. but it is pretty cool stuff.

    Hey Marvin! Thanks for leaving a message...

    It's great to hear you are learning something new. I have never worked for Siemens in the past, but like any of the big guys they have a good product with a large install base, which means they have some good infrastructure set up for the end user to take advantage of like formal training and documentation.

    Where are you located at in Texas? I have spent alot of time all up and down Central Texas. Just recently left San Antonio to move way up here in Ohio.

    I am realitivily new to the controls industry, just about 2 years. One thing noticeably missing from the form is a section on finance/accounting/etc... as it relates to the controls industry. Would like to hear how others are dealing with issues around pricing both for installation and Programimg/graphics.

    that would be kind of difficult because of different supply houses and sites having different price markup and tax scenarios.
    then you have to factor in the competition (what could you save by using this company? do you have to sign any procurement contracts? ,etc., etc)
    im sure a contracted supplier would be happy to litigate over publicizing confidential material and info!

    ive been in the industry for nearly 30 years and military for 10 before that so I know this scenario well.
