Developers of software for the control of industrial machines and processes experience problems related to scale and complexity that is common to all large software applications. These problems are independent on the particular platforms they use, be it PLC’s or IPC’s. Object-oriented techniques offer a clear and effective methodological solution but in the past they could not be integrally applied due to limitations of implementation platforms. With the 3rd release of the IEC 61131-3 standard, object-oriented features for PLC programming become available, which enable true object-oriented development of PLC software applications.
This has the important implication that control software can be developed using object-oriented techniques independent of the ultimate deployment platforms. This opens the way to an integral application of such a methodology in the industrial automation domain.
This course is intended to help developers and architects to apply object-oriented analysis, design and implementation techniques in a practical manner. It focuses on methodology but also pays attention to details of its practical application in the automation domain.
Also read the interview with the lecturers: 'Object-oriented techniques are also suitable for PLCs'.
