A selection methodology is presented for evaluating and selecting a microcomputer for implementing computerized process control and data acquisition systems. The approach is based on establishing priorities that reflect the relative importance of the relevant factors in the system design. Resolution steps include the identification of major system tasks, definition of basic functional concerns with their system descriptors, and comparative evaluation of the candidate microcomputers. A detailed case study illustrates the application of the methodology in the context of energy management.
