Wire Factory Simulator (WFS) is a free software to simulate the control of a factory, mainly controlled by IEC 61499 applications.
You can build your own factory and controller. The controller can be implemented on any programming language.
WFS was originally built to simulate the action of an IEC 614999 application. So, the devices in the factory are easily connected to IEC 61499 applications. The WFS were mainly tested with FBDK (http://www.holobloc.com/).
Wire Factory has been implemented to help to test more complex automation systems during a doctorate course under guidance of:
Supervisor: Prof. Dr. Roberto Silvio Ubertino Rosso Jr.
Co-Supervisor: Prof. Dr. André Bittencourt Leal
at Santa Catarina University State (UDESC) located in Joinville/Brazil.
