The cost of developing software for the factory is continuing to increase, due in part to the problems of integrating equipment and controllers from multiple vendors. It is emphasized that a consistent philosophy is needed for designing reusable code for integrating manufacturing control systems. It is suggested that the development of a generic controller would minimize the problem of redundant software. For a better understanding of this particular approach to a generic controller, an overview of the Automated Manufacturing Research Facility, a definition of a generic controller, and a description of results from development and implementation of a version of the generic controller are presented
