What is e-GRAFCET?

e-GRAFCET is a tool for supporting the teaching-learning process of GRAFCET ( which can be implemented using the programming language Sequential Function Chart – SFC). While this tool was initially developed by Elton Matias in the work conducting to obtain the MSc in Electrical and Computers Engineering [1] under the supervision of Paulo Moura Oliveira and José Boaventura da Cunha. [1] Elton Matias (2007), “Ferramenta Educacional para o Ensino do GRAFCET”, Dissertation, UTAD, PDF, available in: http://repositorio.utad.pt/bitstream/10348/273/1/msc_ermatias.pdf


e-GRAFCET+ can be regarded as an evolution of e-GRAFCET, namely in what concerns the user interface, adaptability to mobile devices, upgrading of accessibility issues, performed by Carlos Mendes e Luís Iria in the scope of a MSc project I in Informatics Engineering, with supervision of Paulo Moura Oliveira and Eduardo Solteiro Pires.
