The advantages of object-oriented modeling, as modularity and reusability of components, are very important also for modeling manufacturing systems and not only for software development. In [1] a unified object-oriented approach for modeling both the logical and the physical part of a manufacturing machine has been proposed. In this paper we report an industrial application of this modeling strategy and the case study consists of the package forming unit of a filling machine for liquid food packaging, developed by Tetra Pak Carton Ambient S.p.a.
