12 The competitive business environment of manufacturing industries requires efficient strategies to increase yield and quality, while decreasing waste, down-time, and energy used. Among these strategies, analyzers are becoming vital to automated process monitoring and control. This conference includes the primary steps required to bring an advanced sensor, analyzer or instrument from inception to implemented process control. Here we present a lighthearted view of the pitfalls encountered in bringing an analytical instrument from the laboratory to the production plant. Two worst case scenarios are given. The `lessons learned' from these experiences are discussed in terms of a step-by-step path to implementing process instrumentation.
