Study and implementation of a prototype forintegration of Prevas FOCS and ABB 800xA (English)
Abstract [en]

ABB and Prevas have initiated a collaboration to sell a system to optimize steel industry furnaces, called FOCS. The purpose of this thesis is to investigate possibilities for integrating Prevas FOCS and ABB 800xA.

The result of the investigation is used for an implementation of a prototype of the integrated system. The study shows a general method that can be used when implementing two software systems. The prototype of the integrated systems is made with usability principles in mind. This is a very important aspect in order to create a good working environment for the operators of a steel plant. It is also important to follow communication standards when integrating software systems. In an industrial network used in the steel industry OPC is a standard for communication. We recommend ABB and Prevas to follow this standard when possible to make the integration smoother. To keep the cost of the integration to a minimum it is also recommended to reuse existing resources. This can however have a negative effect on usability and it is therefore important to keep a balance between cost and usability.

The prototype made in this thesis accomplishes the goal of transferring the functionalities used by operators of Prevas FOCS to 800xA so that operators can control the processes using only one integrated system.
