It has become evident in recent years that due to the complexity and diversity of computer applications in manufacturing environments, not only will previously established 'islands of automation' continue to exist, but new islands will emerge as a result of system expansion and technical renovation. Therefore, it is vitally important that systems integration methods are capable of supporting pre-existing manufacturing application systems as well as incremental system growth.
