The IEC 61131-3 and IEC 61499 standards are
currently used to implement automation systems. Although
aspects as reuseability, execution models, and component-based
design have been discussed and analyzed for both standards, the
programming effort and complexity of implementation for typical
tasks in industrial automation have not been compared so far.
This work proposes two typical application classes of industrial
automation systems and implements one concrete application for
each class with IEC 61131-3 and IEC 61499, respectively. Both
implementations are then evaluated via McCabe´s Cyclomatic
Complexity and Halstead software measures, providing an objective
comparison on the implementations.
