This project of "BUSCS Development using AUTOMGEN and PLC Ladder Support Software" is basically controlling a simplified process based on an actual production line of Bulk Urea Storage Control System (BUSCS) of Asean Bintulu Fertilizer Sdn. Bhd. using Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) and AUTOMGEN7 software. In this project, the student has developed a hardware system using PLC as the main controller and AUTOMGEN7 software which is used to control as well as monitor the operation ofthe whole system. The designing comprises three major elements that need to be developed. First, to develop PLC program using ladder diagrams as the main controller. Then, developing the hardware system using the input and output devices required in controlling the whole process. Lastly, to develop the Human Machine Interface (HMI) using AUTOMGEN7 to simulate the whole operation ofthe system. The hardware system is based on the actual production line of Bulk Urea Storage Extension Project ofASEAN Bintulu Fertilizer Sdn. Bhd. Therefore, the initial stage of the project has been focused on studying the production line and also produces the complete sequence of operations. This is a crucial phase of the project since the student need to have detailed understanding of the complete operation and the control logic ofthe BUSCS. The main objective for this project is to compare the existing system of using relay logics with the use of Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) system in controlling industrial processes. Both systems have been compared in terms of advantages and disadvantages and also in terms of system configuration and complexity. Based on this study, it has been found that PLC is a viable method in controlling an industrial process due to its reliability and maintainability. Supported by industrial standard software like AUTOMGEN7 and other PLC support components, the future ofPLC in industrial control is borderless.
