This paper discusses prospects of commercial application of IEC61499 standard based on past experiences and the future research & development plans of TCS (NZ) Ltd. The global trends in distributed control are analysed along with specific requirements of industries in New Zealand. A collaborative approach is considered to be the best path to industrial incubation and adoption of the technology, thereby turning the vision of distributed control into reality and it is possible to do within the next two years.
