  • Patent number: 10949423
    Abstract: Control facilities and incidental facilities in fields are flexibly managed. Since identification information enabling to identify uniquely information regarding control facilities of which design timing and architectures are mutually different or facilities incidental to the control facilities is encoded, pieces of identification information are coupled and uniqueness is guaranteed. Further, a parent-child relation between identifiers is constructed and the identifiers are structured as a tree structure based on the structure of the control facilities. A control facility operation management device manages combination of the structured identifiers and information of management target or combination of the structured identification information and identification information of a database.
