The four main parts forming an automation standard.
We can help you all the way.
01 - Documentation
02 - Programming
System. PLC, etc.
03 - Electrical standard
04- User interface design
Steg 1 - Introduction
Step2 - Definition of scope
Steg 3 - Review of your standard.
- Existing documentation, manuals, programs, electrical drawings and existing functional descriptions
- Naming standard-how you name things.
- HMI layout and design.
- To agree on how to form the programming framework.
- Divide equipment into logical function groups. F01-FXX. – List functions under each group.
- Functional description Template.
- Naming standard
- Overall HMI layout.
- Rules for electrical design
- Identify resource needs for the continued work.
- A project team with relevant persons from your organisation.
This step ends when we together with your project team consider that we have sufficient information to estimate resources and make a first timetable for the continued work.
Step 4 - Functional description
- Identify function descriptions for each function group.
- Write feature descriptions missing.
- Review and get feature descriptions approved by machine owner.
Workflow electrical design design:
- Define drawing standard.
- Define hardware needs. Define PLC system, HMI, Electric cabinet etc.
- Find the best possible I/O solution. (IO distribution).
Workflow Interactive / Graphic Design:
- Define which graphic objects and which interactive patterns need to be generated.
- Make initial sketches.
Our involvement in this step depends on how you chose to use our services in step1. This step ends when there are approved function descriptions for all features.
Steg 5 - Project plan
Step 6 - Development.
Regular meetings are held to raise any problems as well as to jointly discuss solutions. Project manager at customer in consultation with Lindh Automation sets time between meetings depending on needs. It is recommended to have a meeting at least every other week. If you have chosen to do the development work yourself, Lindh Automation participates in the project meetings. We are also available as support during the project. If you like, we can set up a specially locked forum on our forum page where questions and concerns can be discussed.
If you have a technical editor, she/he will work with HMI programming responsible for designing correct texts and alarm descriptions. If you choose to work with a graphical designer, this person is planned according to the previous step. Each machine function that is written follows the below steps:
- Modulate the function into standard objects.
- Graphical and interactive design.
- Identify if any new standard objects needs to be developed.
- Develop and test standard function if needed.
- Develop data types used in HMI and hand them over to HMI manager.
- Programming PLC and HMI.
- Test of module, preferable by your own staff.
- Modify function after test.
- Implement function in main program.
Step7 - Verification
- Arrange meetings with machine owners for review of the function.
- Make any design changes.
- Review of the electrical design.
- Find a possible order or machine that can be used for final text.
- Plan testing of finished control panels.
- Development of a test plan.
This step is completed when all functions are approved, and the steps above are completed.
Step 8 - Pre Commisioning
Steg 9 - Final test
This step ends when machine owners have approved all functions.
Steg 10 - Review and correct.
This step ends when all remaining points are closed, and all documentation is completed.
