Abstract: In this paper a software production methodology for process control is presented. The specification phase is carried out by resorting to the formalism of Petri Nets. By means of a worked example it is shown how Petri Nets are amenable to describe feedback control structures. The implementation of Petri Net models is performed by the use of a data driven architecture. The presence of system tasks supplying standard functions, such as monitor, display, command acquisition is also considered to ease software production.

Keywords: software production (for) process control; feedback control structures; data-driven architecture.
