Model-Based Testing (MBT) is expected to increase test coverage and reduce the development and maintenance effort of test suites. However, MBT approaches require source information such as UML diagrams that are not produced by many companies in the industrial automation domain. This paper investigates the possibility of using IEC 62424 and CAEX to(More)
The IEC 61499 standard enables a number solutions to the same application development problem, and this can result in components that are incompatible even though they are standards based. IEC 61499 underpins a vision for an open object-oriented knowledge economy, so the application of component-based software development principles needs further research.(More)
Challenges in software development for automation and control have increased because of various reasons, including the size of applications and competition within the industry. A potential solution could be the use of a model-driven engineering approach to facilitate the development process and design information flow. Despite the wide interests towards(More)
Professionals' assessments on the usefulness of IEC 61499 depend on several factors that are outside of the scope of the standard. Automation design in the industry is largely routine work that is based on copying and modifying existing domain-specific solutions, so the lack of legacy software exacerbates learning difficulties. Other factors such as team(More)
Model driven engineering (MDE) technologies are seen as a potential solution to tackle increasing complexity prevailing in developing industrial control systems. Many groups are proposing MDE methods for this application area. Based on company interviews, challenges in industrial adoption of MDE processes and tools have been identified. Our research goal is(More)
Factory Acceptance Testing should involve customer's experts and knowledge in defining, reading and validating tests, while keeping labor costs at moderate level. This involvement requires a testing approach, which hides implementation details and emphasizes domain terminology. Keyword driven testing is seen a viable test automation solution to reduce cost(More)
Next generation of industrial automation. Concepts and architecture of a component-based control system. Abstract Recent trends in automation are characterised by geographical distribution and functional integration. On the technical level, the goal is to easily connect devices and software components from different vendors. Functionally, there is a need(More)
