In this paper, the authors proposal related to standardization of distributed control system programming on common platform which minimizes man-hours in the initial phase of software implementation as well as in migration from one DCS platform to another. Here are some details about the proposed tool. This tool should consist of standard algorithm libraries, along with capability to generate IO database with respect to various DCS vendor specifications. The output of this tool is expected to be compatible with all DCS software properties or attributes, so that any DCS vendor can minimize the engineering efforts required in understanding, designing and implementing complete control software required for process industries.
