Abstract

Today, manufacturing production systems are required to be responsive, re-configurable, adaptable, and flexible. The fulfilment of these requirements is directly related to the method used to design and develop their control applications. The paper presents the result of an investigation study to capture current techniques adopted by logic designers during the design and development of control applications at IntRoSys. The result of this study is then used as the foundation for the development of a methodology and its related tools for achieving agility in programming manufacturing control systems.
