In terms of fulfilling the customers' needs, Distributed Control Systems (DCS) have gained increasing significance for automation engineering over the past years. The advantages of DCS, e.g. enhanced dependability, flexibility and configurability, overcome various shortcomings of centralized control systems. However, engineering of heterogeneous networks lacks a modeling notation for automation and engineers and a tool support to calculate the time behavior. A notation for an intuitive and… CONTINUE READING
