Modular and Generic Control Software System for Scalable Automation

Abstract : The development of automated production systems is subdivided in two mayor tasks. One is the development of the processes needed to meet the requirements for the product, the other is the setup of a control system enabling the hardware to perform these processes. Typically the larger amount of the available resources is needed for the setup of hardware and implementation of the required control mechanism, leaving only limited resources for the process development. Especially for small scale and prototype production with a high rate of changes, this is why fully automated solutions don't pay off and manual or partial manually assembly is preferred [1]. This paper introduces an approach how to separate the implementation effort of the hardware specific tasks from the process definition, allowing a fast and easy setup for new automation systems, due to simultaneous development and a high rate of reuse of previous solutions.
