With the increasing levels of automation across domains, systems have become multifaceted, employing a variety of devices such as PLCs (programmable logic controllers), robots, CNC machines, drives etc. Changes made to one device can adversely affect the performance of the entire system, leading to downtime and adverse product quality. Thus, automation is not just about increasing efficiency, but is also about managing the programs on the shop floor.

Automation change management – or automation revision control as it is also referred to – is a philosophy that:

  • Maintains a central repository of all automation programs, thus addressing backup and retrieval
  • Restricts access to programs
  • Creates revision automatically
  • Tracks unauthorized changes to programs
