ADDORATA: A Distributed Object-Oriented Architecture for Real-Time Applications
Leandro Buss Becker
Turing Conference Room
The internationalization of the markets, the
consequent worldwide competition, and the increasing
demand for high-quality but low-price products
require from modern industries a massive use of
industrial automation in order to meet their
customers' needs and to be competitive. Because of
this, modern industrial automation systems have
achieved a high level of complexity that makes them
almost intractable for humans. Next generation
industrial automation systems tend to be even more
complex, since these systems are expected to be very
large, distributed, containing highly dynamic and
adaptive behaviour, having a long lifetime, and
involving complex timing constraints. There is a
consensus that conventional techniques for
developing complex real time applications are not
able to deal with such a complexity, mainly due to
their poor abstraction mechanisms. Therefore, new
techniques are required. This talk presents the
propose of an object-oriented technique for dealing
with such complex real-time applications, which is
called ADDORATA (A Distributed Object-Oriented
Architecture for Real-Time Applications).
The ADOORATA project focuses specially on problems
related to the development of large and complex real
time industrial automation systems (for example,
production control systems, robot control, etc.).
The task of developing modern real time systems
cost-effectively, on time, fulfilling prescribed
quality criteria, can only be satisfactorily met by
applying apt system engineering approaches. All
development phases, from requirements engineering
through design, implementation, testing, until
maintenance are covered within the ADOORATA project.
