Abstract
The use of an object-oriented approach in software engineering has proven to be successful for many years, but in the fields of mechanics and automation it has been ignored for long. The Tetra Pak Carton Bottle automation team believes that a switch from a function-oriented architecture to an object-oriented one would be of benefit not only to them but also any department which is involved with development, production, and maintenance of filling machines.

Many product projects of today make the mistake of having its participants jumping straight into the implementation part of the project while skipping the work of first defining requirements of what the product shall accomplish. People in general like to start by doing the how of the... (More)
The use of an object-oriented approach in software engineering has proven to be successful for many years, but in the fields of mechanics and automation it has been ignored for long. The Tetra Pak Carton Bottle automation team believes that a switch from a function-oriented architecture to an object-oriented one would be of benefit not only to them but also any department which is involved with development, production, and maintenance of filling machines.

Many product projects of today make the mistake of having its participants jumping straight into the implementation part of the project while skipping the work of first defining requirements of what the product shall accomplish. People in general like to start by doing the how of the project without first focusing on the what.

But if the needs of other product concerned are overlooked then there is a risk of an important part being left out, perhaps leading to a weaker product. This master thesis focuses on the what part of a development project where an object-oriented architecture shall be deployed for Tetra Pak’s development, production, and maintenance of machine systems. During the master thesis requirements from various stakeholders were defined based on interviews and discussions held with various Tetra Pak departments.

The result, the requirements, show that Tetra Pak has several areas which would be benefited by an object-oriented architecture by making Tetra Pak’s machines more modular and the maintenance of them simpler. (Less)
