ControlBuild is designed to meet the needs of systems integrators, OEMs, prime contractors, system engineering, construction and consulting firms. It provides a comprehensive tool suite dedicated to modeling, simulation and development of industrial plant automation and electronic embedded systems - from definition and validation of specification to implementation and deployment.
ControlBuild delivers an innovative model driven systems engineering environment for designing and validating industrial automation, train and railway control systems, that comply with standards such as EN50128 and IEC 61131- 3. All stages of the development process are addressed through system design, PLC & DCS tasks allocation, automatic code generation, integration testing and operator training.
Based on a model-driven approach and supported by a structured set of libraries, ControlBuild is used to efficiently model, simulate, test, validate and deploy IEC 61131-3 control applications.
By modeling the control system in the context of a model of the plant (i.e. the physical equipment, actuators & sensors), ControlBuild helps engineers to understand and communicate around dynamic systems specifications.
Through the use of graphical systems animations, software developers, electrical engineers, test & commissioning engineers and plant operators are able to communicate and exchange their requirements, design choices and understanding. All issues and errors can be readily identified and eliminated early in the project development cycle.
