It's not uncommon for software projects to suffer delays during the development process. One reason for this is that the software itself is too complex and inflexible. Nevertheless, this process can be accelerated by employing an object-oriented approach. By incorporating the C++ programming language, Automation Studio from B&R does exactly this. Regardless of the task, the development team always has the right tool to master it - starting with the specification of requirements and continuing through the object-oriented analysis, design and simulation of the machine, all the way up to its commissioning. This results in a more dynamic development process across the board, reducing overall development times while simultaneously increasing the quality of the software itself.
