Aleš Fleischmann (2008) Some components of a process control document system interface. EngD thesis.
In this work we have developed some components of a custom developed system for process control system documentation. The overall goal of such documentation system is to give a user the capability to describe various components and aspects about an automated process control and to describe relations between them. After that, the user should be able to inquire and get the required information in various forms. We overviewed some known commercial systems dedicated to the design and documentation of electrical and electromechanical systems. We briefly evaluated ePLAN, WSCAD, SEE Electrical/CADdy++ and AutoCAD Electrical. We presented arguments and needs to develop an own program, aimed specifically to the documentation of various software, hardware and material aspects of a process control system. In our work, we have described the concept and overviewed the structure of such a support system for development of automated process control. The modular structure allows and facilitates gradual development and later upgrading. For the same reasons it is based on open source and de-facto standard software tools as much as possible. We have described two components of the system that we have developed.
