Control systems development for the automotive industry is done pretty much the same today as it was 15 years ago. Therefore, the usefulness of a high level structured approach for Control Systems Engineering is undeniable. This paper describes how object-oriented programming (OOP) or the frame paradigm can be used to program PLCs even though using their old fashioned programming abstract model. To prove the validity of the proposal a real industrial implementation is shown.
