Area of process automation requires more and more efficiency, speed and economical benefits. Due to this purpose in 2002 a new software solution appeared; PackML industrial standard. Standard PackML has perfected within years and in 2008 reached its newest form in PackML technical report ISA-TR88 00.02.
The thesis describes implementation of PackML standard on laboratory modular production machine in laboratory LMSV and LAMS at Faculty of electrical engineering in Ljubljana. Standard includes any number of modes and 17 different states that machine can be in. The machine is decomposed into units (Unit), and those into modules (Equipment Module and Control Module).
The result of the thesis is a completely functional machine, i.e. a sinchronous operation of all five stations. The complete functionality is provided by programing in ladder diagram using GX IEC Developer version 7.04 software, where PackML standard is implemented within the program code.
