ExxonMobil challenges Automation software development process

Great blog post this week in Automation World outlining how a major oil producer plans to challenge the automation project engineering life cycle. Some of the more salient points are:

  • Eliminate, simplify or automate steps in the overall automation execution.
  • Minimize custom engineering.
  • Shift the custom engineering to the software and rely on standard, not customized hardware components with minimal dependencies on the custom design.
  • Virtualize the hardware and prove the software design against the virtualized system via software FAT that can be performed anywhere; no hardware FAT.
