Itris Automation's PLC Software Factory concept wins 1st Prize

Itris Automation was rewarded during the opening ceremony of SPS IPC Drives in Parma (Italy) for the excellence of its Software Factory concept. Itris Automation's first appearance as an exhibitor at the industrial automation fair has been a huge success for the company, which has just announced the development of its activities in Italy.

Itris Automation's PLC Software Factory concept wins 1st Prize

The article, dedicated to Automation 4.0, presented at the round table by Itris Automation was considered the most successful and inspiring among the 100 contributions during the conference of 12-14 May 2015.

This prize reflects the recognition of the relevance of Itris Automation's approach by experts representing more than 30 companies and prestigious Italian universities. Itris Automation's paper proposes to industrialise the development of programs for logic controllers in order to make the factory of the future more efficient. This approach is made possible by Itris Automation's range of tools for quality verification (PLC Checker), automatic translation (PLC Converter) and the generation of documentation (PLC DocGen).

Denis Chalon, Technical Director at Itris Automation and co-author of the winning paper, explains: "The programmers of logic controllers play a crucial role in the dispersion of programming techniques in the industrial world. By supporting them with our tools throughout the whole life cycle of the installations, we are enabling industrial innovation that is flexible, productive and shared by all."

Eric Pierrel, President of Itris Automation, adds: "This award recognises the outstanding effort of our teams. The fact that the committee is composed of industrial experts confirms our vision. After the first commercial and technical successes in Italy, we are encouraged to emphasise our presence and to advance our international development."
