The process operation might consist of a set of two-state (on/off) actions, which the PLC can sequence in the proper order and at correct times. PLCs are typically used in factories and process plants, to connect input devices such as switches to output devices such as valves, at high speed at appropriate times in a task, as governed by a program (ladder logic). Examples of such tasks include sequencing the production line operations, starting a complex process plant, and activating the local controllers in a distributed control environment.

As noted before, transportation is a broad area where sensors have numerous applications. In ground transportation in particular, automobiles, trains, and automated transit systems use airbag deployment systems, antilock braking systems (ABS), cruise control systems, active suspension systems, and various devices for monitoring, toll collection, navigation, warning, and control in intelligent vehicular highway systems. All these devices use sensors and sensor systems. In air transportation, modern aircraft designs with advanced materials, structures, electronics, and control benefit from sophisticated sensors.

There is another important class of controls, known as discrete-state control (discrete-event control), where the control objective is for the process to follow a required sequence of states (or steps). In each state, however, some form of continuous-state control might be operated, but it is not quite relevant to the task of discrete-state control. PLCs are particularly intended for accomplishing discrete-state control tasks. As an example for PLC application, consider an operation of turbine blade manufacture.
