▪ Overview of the state of the art in industrial software engineering of aPS using PLCs.

▪ Benchmark process to evaluate the maturity of aPS application software.

▪ SWMAT4aPS consists of a self-assessment questionnaire and an expert analysis.

▪ Maturity measures: modularity, test/quality assurance and start-up/operation/maintenance.

▪ Weaknesses of aPS software related to mechanics and automation hardware in comparison to pure software identified.
