Abstract: In considering advancements in distributed control systems (DCS), this research is directed to design and develop an application level software tool for distributed automation. The study defines specification, methodology, and prototype design of an application tool that is capable of providing services to the proposed management layer (ML). The ML integrates simulation platform, a top-level ware, by using which distributed control network (DCN) design can be achieved. The developed platform utilises the benefit of object oriented and client-server approach, respectively.
