Modularity, evolution and tools designed for users - A case study
This paper describes the control and monitoring system of Tore Supra. The users were first invited to draw up a specification, then a system comprising three levels was put in place. It is open-ended and can thus be developed by the users. The facilities defined are high-level and can be understood by those with little experience of computing or automation. They either are language-based or work in conversational mode. The paper describes the hardware architecture of the system, the control of automatic devices and the compiling and perfecting of the software. The real-time user environment is presented: this includes the graphics and the means of monitoring and control, as well as the capabilities which can be added to the initial system.
