Focusing on the design and implementation of computer-based automatic machine tools, David F. Noble challenges the idea that technology has a life of its own. Technology has been both a convenient scapegoat and a universal solution, serving to disarm critics, divert attention, depoliticize debate, and dismiss discussion of the fundamental antagonisms and inequalities that continue to beset America. This provocative study of the postwar automation of the American metal-working industry—the heart of a modern industrial economy—explains how dominant institutions like the great corporations, the universities, and the military, along with the ideology of modern engineering shape, the development of technology. Noble shows how the system of "numerical control," perfected at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and put into general industrial use, was chosen over competing systems for reasons other than the technical and economic superiority typically advanced by its promoters. Numerical control took shape at an MIT laboratory rather than in a manufacturing setting, and a market for the new technology was created, not by cost-minded producers, but instead by the U. S. Air Force. Competing methods, equally promising, were rejected because they left control of production in the hands of skilled workers, rather than in those of management or programmers. Noble demonstrates that engineering design is influenced by political, economic, managerial, and sociological considerations, while the deployment of equipment—illustrated by a detailed case history of a large General Electric plant in Massachusetts—can become entangled with such matters as labor classification, shop organization, managerial responsibility, and patterns of authority. In its examination of technology as a human, social process, Forces of Production is a path-breaking contribution to the understanding of this phenomenon in American society.

The authors and editors of this Handbook have attempted to fill a serious gap in the professional literature on industrial automation. Much past attention has been directed to the general concepts and philosophy of automation as a way to convince owners and managers of manufacturing facilities that automation is indeed one of the few avenues available to increase productivity and improve competitive position. Seventy-three contributors share their knowledge in this Handbook. Less attention has been given to the "What" and "How" of automation. To the extent feasible and practical within the confines of the pages allowed, this Handbook concentrates on the implementation of automation. Once the "Go" signal has been given by management, concrete details-not broad definitions and philosophical discussions-are required. To be found in this distinctly different book in the field are detailed parameters for designing and specifying equipment, the options available with an evaluation of their relative advantages and limitations, and insights for engineers and production managers on the operation and capabilities of present-generation automation system components, subsystems, and total systems. In a number of instances, the logical extension of current technology into the future is given. A total of 445 diagrams and photos and 57 tables augments detailed discussions. In addition to its use as a ready reference for technical and management personnel, the book has wide potential for training and group discussions at the college and university level and for special education programs as may be provided by consultants or by "in-house" training personnel.

Industrial automation systems are complex control systems that perform control and automation of hazardous plants. Safety of such systems is of paramount importance and may even be mandated by law. Safety-related systems may be required to demonstrate conformance to an applicable functional safety standards to assure safety and demonstrate the that these systems mitigate the risk to human lives, as much as reasonably possible. IEC 61508 is a standard of functional safety for generic electric, electronic, and programmable electronic (E/E/PE) systems and is used as the principal guide in this thesis. IEC 61508 adopts a two-pronged approach for addressing random failures in the hardware and systematic errors in the software. Random failures are addressed using quantitative techniques for reliability analysis e.g., reliability block diagrams and Markov analysis, and by computing the safe failure fraction to establish a confidence level. Systematic errors, on the other hand, are avoided by following quality assurance recommendations and qualitative validation techniques. However, this segregated application of quantitative and qualitative approaches is inadequate for addressing complexities introduced by software-intensive control systems. Furthermore, the manual application of traditional safety analysis techniques is tedious, error-prone, and largely dependent on practitioners' skills. In order to ameliorate these problems, a model-driven approach towards safety analysis named, model-based safety assessment (MBSA) was proposed, which has gained significant interest in academia and industry in the recent years. MBSA approaches use system models for the purpose of safety analysis such as extracting fault trees, performing quantitative analysis, or discovering a critical sequence of errors that may cause system failures. MBSA can be performed on either by using dedicated safety models or by using system development models. The latter approach allows seamless integration with model-driven development (MDD), which is the state-of-the-art for design, implementation and validation of control and automation systems. In MDD, high-level system models are constructed that are iteratively refined by adding details until an implementation of the system software can be automatically extracted from the development models using automatic code generation. One such approach for implementing industrial control systems uses IEC 61499, which is an open standard for implementing industrial process controller and measurement systems. It proposes various design artefacts e.g., basic and composite function blocks and enables a component-oriented design approach for implementing complex behaviours i.e., by connecting function blocks to form function block networks. A popular design pattern for the development of IEC 61499 based systems suggests the implementation of two separate tiers called plant-model and controller. The plantmodel mimics the expected behaviour of the plant and the controller implements the automation logic. When connected in a closed-loop, the overall system model is formed that is used for various verification and validation activities such as formal verification, testing, simulation. Such analyses are well-suited for safety-critical systems and help to avoid systematic errors. However, plant-models are also susceptible to random errors, which cannot be analysed by using qualitative techniques alone. Unfortunately, all existing validation and verification techniques available for IEC 61499 based systems are qualitative in nature, which cannot be used for the purpose of quantitative risk assessment. This calls for developing an approach for the quantitative safety assessment of IEC 61499 based systems. In this thesis, we present an MBSA approach for quantitative risk assessment of industrial automation systems using IEC 61499. The presented approach proposes a novel structure named stochastic function block for modelling stochastic aspects of random failures and environmental non-determinism in the plant-model. The controller, on the other hand, is developed using standard IEC 61499 function blocks. The overall system model is transformed into Markov decision processes in the Prism language for probabilistic verification using the Prism model checker. This enables quantitative analysis of the system behaviour presuming software behaviour under random errors of the plant. The controller is eventually used for automatic code generation and deployment onto the physical plant. Use of standard function blocks for the controller renders the proposed technique complaint to the IEC 61499 standard and permit seamless integration into the MDD activities. The key contributions of the presented work are as following. 1) A novel structure based on IEC 61499 basic function blocks named stochastic function block. This structure is used for representing the random errors in the plant model and environmental non-determinism. 2) A rule-based transformation from IEC 61499 function blocks to Prism model that preserves the adopted synchronous execution semantics. The generated Prism model is a Markov decision process that represents the probabilistic and non-deterministic aspects of the system due to its random errors. 3) A scalable MBSA approach for a unified qualitative and quantitative analysis, which is useful in the early design validation and managing modifications in system design. 4) An MDE tool-chain named BlokIDE, which provides support for the proposed stochastic function blocks and automatic translation to the Prism language. This enables stochastic error modelling and integration with the Prism model checker for the purpose of proposed MBSA approach. 5) A proposal for conforming to IEC 61508 requirements using IEC 61499 modelbased approach, showing various specification and design various stages of the V-Model. To the best of our knowledge, the proposed approach is the very first attempt for providing a model-based safety assessment approach for industrial automation systems using IEC 61499 along with a comprehensive tool-chain.
