Model driven engineering (MDE) technologies are seen as a potential solution to tackle increasing complexity prevailing in developing industrial control systems. Many groups are proposing MDE methods for this application area. Based on company interviews, challenges in industrial adoption of MDE processes and tools have been identified. Our research goal is to gain insight and identify challenges to industrial adoption of MDE technologies in process control application design. AUKOTON MDE process and tool have been used as an example. The paper concludes by proposing refinements to generally accepted MDE goals, in order to better address industrial needs.
