Flexible production systems represent key commodities for industrial companies in order to successfully persist on the global market. Batch processes and modifiable recipes already provide a certain flexibility concerning the design of production processes. However, the employed automation systems demonstrate deficits concerning reconfiguration and reusability. IEC 61499 introduces new paradigms to the automation domain by offering generic architectures suitable for reconfigurable distributed control systems. This paper introduces an engineering method for process automation using a component based design and applied industrial standards to show the feasibility and benefits of designing a distributed control system based on the standard IEC 61499.
