Abstract

In this paper we propose a software framework where the main aim is to make easier the implementation of supervisory control. The main idea is that functionalities must be offered with no effects on the robustness of the system. We prove that our methodology has a solid base, so the approach can be applied to any kind of industrial process unit. In this way, a real application of a developed framework is presented. The implementation is done over well-known devices (such as PLC with a conveyor belt) so the technical feasibility of the procedure is guaranteed.
