An Innovative Automation Solution for the Process Industry | DIMA

We developed an innovative solution for process systems in the project we developed in cooperation with the Universities of Dresden and Helmut Schmidt. DIMA (Distributed Intelligence for Modular Automation Applications) makes operators more flexible in process systems and helps reduce your automation costs.

Why DIMA?

Developed on the basis of DIMA NAMUR 2013 NE 148. Accordingly, automation solutions for modular process systems are 2 different functions as module control and high level control systems. This requirement arises from the demands of process operators to respond quickly to new production conditions, new requirements of customers and changing market conditions.

Unlike conventional and independent system architectures with traditional visualization and procedural control, DIMA works on equipping its own intelligence modules. For this purpose, the system architecture is divided into 2 parts. Management level and individual transaction modules. (I/O level and integration of automation systems) Cross-system functions, for example, automation in recipe management modules instead of all basic functions are performed according to the higher level of automation. Module Type Packages (MTP) explain the modules. MTP includes information about process control integration, operation and monitoring functions as well as batch functions. The module supplier module uses MTP suitable for system operator integration engineering and then configures the overall system. Communication between management level and module is service oriented (SOA, Service Oriented Architecture)

AUTOMATION EQUIPMENT WITH DIMA IS EQUIPPED WITH ITS OWN INTELLIGENCE. THIS IS SIMILAR TO THE SAME LEGO BUILDINGS. SYSTEM BLOCKS EASILY AND FLEXIBLE TO BE SEPARATE AND COMBINED.

DIMA divides the intelligence of process control systems into 2 separate foundations. The level of control serves only to provide visualization and procedural control. However, individual modules perform all functions based on their individual intelligence. Throughout the production, the communication between the control level and the modules continues to be service oriented.
