This paper is based on the results from the project PROTEUS sponsored by the French Ministry of Economy, Finance and Industry and the Federal Ministry of Education and Research of Germany under the label of European Commission Initiative ITEA. It presents the architecture and the basic concepts of an integration platform, which constitutes the framework of(More)
This paper deals with control applications designed using the component-based standard IEC 61499. In this standard, a function block is an event triggered component and an application is a function blocks network. Supposing end to end delays on applications behavior, the hard temporal validation of FBs networks may be not feasible. We propose to weaken(More)
This paper deals with the IEC 61499 standard. A function block (FB) is an event triggered component and an application is a distributed FBs network on several devices. We consider these devices as multi-tasking PLCs. To validate the temporal behavior inside a device, we propose a hybrid scheduling approach combining off-line and on-line policies. This(More)
This paper deals with the component based standard IEC 61499. A function block (FB) is an event triggered component and an application is a network of FBs. This network is centralized in a multi-tasking PLC. To validate the temporal behavior of the application blocks, we propose a hybrid scheduling approach combining off-line and on-line policies. The(More)
Nowadays, most of distributed architectures are easily scalable MIMD (Multiple Instruction streams, Multiple Data streams) parallel computers or networks of workstations. The challenge consists in taking advantage of the power of these architectures. It has been shown that dataparallel languages offer both a programming model easy to understand and several(More)
This paper proposes a static scheduling of an application designed using the IEC 61499 standard. In this standard, a function block (FB) is an event triggered component and an application is a FBs network. According to specifications, we propose temporal constraints on the application behavior. To verify these constraints, we propose to transform the(More)
The PROTEUS project is a collaborative initiative aimed at developing a European generic sortware platform usable for implementation of web-based emaintenance practices. ll contributes to ITEA Roadmap Domain of Cyber Enterprise and especially to the category of Engineering Process Support. Thanks to its generic SfNClUre, application domains covered are in(More)
OPC-XML defines a standard method for accessing automation data in the industry field. This protocol relies on Web service communications allowing a great compatibility and a software/hardware independent definition. Nevertheless, this underlying protocol does not take into account temporal Quality of Service. Therefore, when a contract is defined between(More)
This paper deals with the deployment of industrial control applications on distributed execution supports. These applications are developed according to the IEC 61499 standard. They are based on compositions of event triggered components. The execution support is a network of computational units scheduling OS tasks. The deployment problem consists then in(More)
This account presents the architecture and the basic operation principle of an integration platform which constitutes the framework of the system implementing the task of remote maintenance for the large and medium scale industrial installation. The system based on the technology of Web services is an example of the vertical integration of domain specific(More)
