•         Complete reverse engineering work process to document details of the current legacy control program into functional specification documents (e-PCSDs).

•         Conduct reviews of e-PCSDs with operations, to ensure that the information has been captured correctly.

•         Complete the re-engineering work process to modify the control strategy for implementation in the commercial DCS.  Incorporate required control strategy modifications as agreed with operations and business leadership.

•         Conduct reviews of PCSDs with operations, to ensure that the PCSDs accurately reflect the way the new control code is to be written.

•         Complete the control application code, incorporating the finishing details into the code generated by the forward engineering tools.

•         Develop simulation code to adequately test the new control logic and train operations.

•         Develop graphics.

•         Complete checkout of the new control application in simulation.  Document checkout results in the check sheets supplied by the migration program.
