Contribution à la flexibilité et à la rapidité de conception des systèmes automatisés avec l'utilisation d'UML

Abstract : The actual economical market tendency brings an increasingly complexity of customer needs and consequently, of the production constraints. The current design methodologies show their limits in very inconstant contexts where specifications have to rapidly evolve, due to too early consideration of specific technological items in the preliminary specification work, limiting developments versatility. Then companies have to capitalize the leaded efforts in first specification phases in order to reduce development time. Our thesis work deals with the Automation Systems Engineering and intends to answer the previous issue using techniques from software design areas to specify physical systems, like the OOA (Object-Oriented Design) and object-oriented modeling with UML (Unified Modeling Language), targeting a late specialization and a code generation according to the chosen technological target, like in the MDA (Model Driven Architecture). The original work here is in the description of a methodology and a working organization for Control and Automation systems, according to a multi-aspect automation object. Furthermore, we propose the use of SysML (Systems Modeling Language) to represent the function blocs in the IEC 61131-3 standard, through the " block " stereotype. Finally, we show how it is possible to obtain a first code generation using the PLCopen specifications, defining a link between a XML description(eXtensible Markup Language), aiming at being a standard, and the IEC 61131-3 norm languages. Using this, independence from a specific integrated development environment is kept. The described design process has been transposed to a real industrial case study, in robotic palletization area.
