This remote workability differs in different types of IACS. The integration of the system with the plant floor also covers the integration of sales operations, R&D, supply chains, and compliance processes. Industrial automation and control system solutions require smart devices essentially for data gathering as well as secure networks to support communications and data transfers.

Primarily, sensors on machinery and equipment are used to accomplish this. IACS needs communication solutions, hardware, and software to convert the collected sensor data into useful information that triggers an automatic action. This could involve activities on the assembly line, including switching from one set to another.

IACS is also capable of autonomously regulating the production level based on data gathered in real-time and from distribution networks and sales. The most common IACS systems are basic process control systems (BPCS) and safety instrumented systems (SIS). A BPCS is essentially a system that manages monitoring and process control for a facility.

The system takes inputs from process instruments and sensors and gives output that is based on control functions and is in accordance with the specified design control strategy. The BPCS, in general, optimizes the operations in a plant to facilitate the production of a good quality product while maintaining the process variables within limits. It also provides a human machine interface (HMI) for control and monitoring, as well as allows event logging and trending functions.
