Software controls and monitors machines and plants in a wide range of industries. Due to increasing functionality and interconnection, the software is becoming more and more complex. This leads to longer start-up times and increased development costs. A central challenge for software development in mechanical and plant engineering is therefore to increase the development efficiency while at the same time ensuring the quality of the software in such a way that the start-up of new machines can take place earlier and faster. Based on experiences from many research and industrial projects, this talk presents best practices for a systematic and efficient software development in mechanical and plant engineering. In particular, the introduction of standardized software modules will be discussed, in order to avoid errors right from the start and to significantly accelerate the development of new plants through the systematic reuse of software modules in combination with generative techniques.
