What is OPC?
OPC is a specification or set of written rules and procedures for the way multiple software programs ("applications") can talk to each other. The OPC specification was created by users and software developers in the manufacturing/process control industry to serve the needs of the manufacturing automation/process control industry specifically. The specification is managed by volunteer effort and administered by the independent OPC Foundation.
OPC came about because application software developers and users saw the need to begin to standardize how their applications worked together to reduce integration and total life cycle costs for software used in the manufacturing automation/process control industry.
Before OPC, each software application vendor provided their own custom ways to connect 3rd party applications into theirs. So to connect vendor application "A" to vendor application "B", you had usually have an expert C++ programmer who could quickly come up to speed and become an expert on the custom programming interfaces for both application "A" and application "B". Furthermore, users usually had to purchase a toolkit from each of the two application vendors at a cost of several thousand dollars each, long before they even cut the first check to the programmer who was to integrate the two.
With the OPC initiative, developers in the manufacturing automation/process control industry began to adopt the specification and build "doors" into their applications that met the OPC specifications, so that if Application A and Application B were both written to the same OPC specification, they could connect with a mere fraction of the integration time and cost and without custom code.
