Requirements for product quality and the increased number of complex specialty products as well as flexibility requirements for the usage of production equipment have emphasized the benefits of discontinuous batch production in the process industries. Even if batch control has for a long been a challenge to control engineers, emerging standards and software component technologies have now made novel automation concepts possible. VTT Auto-mation is developing a new software component based framework for batch process management. The experi-mental domain specific framework integrates the new batch control standard and existing domain specific experi-ence with object-oriented design pattern based approach and distributed software component technology.
