"Extraction of Automation System Engineering Knowledge for Mapping Plant and Simulation Interfaces";
in: "Service Orientation in Holonic and Multi-agent Manufacturing and Robotics",
Design and integration of industrial automation systems require cooperation
of different engineering disciplines and various engineering tools during
both design-time and runtime. The scope of this chapter is to bridge the
gap between the design-time description and the runtime integration in a semiautomated
way. Furthermore, this chapter focuses on the problem of the integration
of legacy systems with limited access to original engineering data. It is
assumed that an interface between a real industrial system and software automation
tools is OPC Unified Architecture (OPC UA) and we propose to derive the
plant knowledge from the OPC UA tag list. Since it is not possible to solve this
task in general, we require the tag list to adopt the naming convention defined by
the international standard IEC 81346, which is widespread in large-scale systems.
This tag list is parsed and the engineering knowledge is derived and stored in the
Engineering Knowledge Base. Consequently, the plant knowledge is mapped to
knowledge related to software automation tools, such as simulations. The proposed
methodology is evaluated on a real-life example dealing with a laboratory
IEC 81346, OPC UA, semantic integration, simulation, interface description.
