A distributed control system (DCS) is an automated control system that monitors and provides instructions to different parts of a machine. Commonly used in manufacturing equipment, a DCS utilizes input and output protocols to control distributed equipment. DCS systems are commonly used in process industries controlling breweries, refineries, chemical plants, paper mills, etc. The key advantage of DCSs is that they divide up the control tasks among multiple distributed systems. This book outlines for designing distributed machine control system software architecture.
