Executive Summary

Industrial networks used to control production machinery require high availability to keep possible productivity losses to a minimum. The challenges to overcome are how one is to acquire the needed device information - also with a possible network error already in place - and how to process and pass on this information in order for the error to be quickly fixed. The paper took possible error scenarios and the data available on the devices to determine which errors can be detected and processed and propose a system of abstraction which provides administrative and service personnel with means to quickly and efficiently identify and fix detected errors.
