The paper proposes a framework for incorporating results of the analytical and laboratory measurements directly into the process control system. It is based on an object-oriented framework for cooperative testing of control algorithms implemented for experimental pilot-plants. It enables modification of the control algorithm structure without rewriting the main software component executed on the programmable automation controller (PAC). In this paper the framework is expanded to enable access to web-based services for the purpose of incorporating the results of advanced off-line measurements directly in the process control system.
