The paper starts the discussion from the history of automatic control review. We observe how this field of engineering evolved from pure heuristic designs (inventions) to the home court of applied mathematics. Thanking to this evolution, modern automatic control is able to formally provide standard out of shell solutions to any object or technology. At the same time this standardization can be a cause for professional thinking inertia. The latter may be a reason to miss possible automation ideas when they are out of the "sensor-controller-drive" box. The paper speculates on how the principle of Ideal final result (and accompanying TRIZ tools such as trimming and resources search procedures) can enlarge the toolkit of automation engineers. We also discuss how ideality principle can be interpreted in terms of plant modification. The examples demonstrate how mathematical modelling (in contrast to TRIZ modeling techniques) can be more productive in inventive idea generation. The discussion on concurrent (parallel) plant and control design concludes the paper.
