This paper is a proposal related to standardization of Distributed Control System Programming on common platform which minimizes man-hours in the initial phase of software implementation as well as in migration from one DCS platform to another. Here are some details about the proposed tool. This tool should consists of standard algorithm libraries, along with capability to generate IO database with respect to various DCS vendor specifications. The output of this tool is expected to be compatible with all DCS software properties or attributes, so that any DCS vendor can minimize the engineering efforts required in understanding, designing and implementing complete control software required for process industries. Adaption above standards provides the suppliers to focus on design of software and conversion of the same into platform independent interoperable software which in turn minimizes the initial design engineering hours and budget for the same. By standardization of software, the End User has "Freedom to Choose" best-in-class, interoperable software implementation techniques, and the "Power to Integrate" control systems, subsystems and devices across the plant enterprise. It unifies concepts and proposes a common standardized programming tool which interfaces with different DCS vendors with a set of standard function blocks, macros in its own set of libraries and includes an easy way to apply new technologies.
