PLC_Statecharts: An Approach to Integrate UML Statecharts in Open-Loop Control Engineering
This paper defines an adaptation of UML-statecharts which can be used as a visual programming language for PLCs. Those PLC-statecharts combine the advantages of UML-statecharts with a strict formal basis and dedicated features for PLC-programming. Finally an empirical study on PLC-statecharts is briefly presented.
