Profits of a Programming Standard
The profits of a solid programming standard are still underestimated. However, an investment in the development and maintenance of a programming standard gives multiple advantages within the automation of your business. For example:
Simplified and faster development/adjustment of applications.
By incorporating a software structure (for example using ISA S88) and standard components (for frequently used systems) into a programming standard, one only has to deal with the process and the cohesion of the modules during the development of an application. Hence the individual components have already been developed and tested.
Faster diagnosis in case of malfunctions and optimizations.
A programming standard forces a generic build-up of an application resulting in faster debugging and optimization of the application.
Reuse of developed and proven knowledge and technology.
A component only needs to be developed and tested once, after which it can be reused.
Uniformity when using bus-connected components.
For frequently used bus-connected components, a uniform communication routine can be developed so that it is the same for all systems.
Recognizability for all users (both internal / external).
A structured standard makes the application software clear and readable for users, both the programmer of the application and outsiders. This only requires a small introduction to the programming standard for an outsider with programming experience.
Van Daal engineering already developed a tailor-made programming standard for several customers. These standards are custom-built to fit the systems and regulations of the customer.
