In the domain of batch process industries, a certain grade of flexibility exists from the process-oriented view due to the usage of modifiable recipes. However, the applied control systems are commonly based on centralized concepts, which makes modifications to the provided equipment functionalities inevitably complex. More flexibility can be achieved by applying a distributed control approach with similar structures as the physical equipment. Thus, entities can be achieved that encapsulate physical equipment with distinct functionality and information. These entities can then be combined for realizing functionality on a more complex level and additional functionality can be added by integrating further entities ].
