Low level industrial systems use simple data representation which reflects flat input and output structure of control industrial system. This structure is directly mapped to the flat memory allocation. The structural data organization is used in upper layers of industrial computer system. This article contains compare analysis of tag and object oriented data model used for vertical communication in distributed industrial computer systems. This analysis is based on classical tag approach used in the most of classical visualization systems and object oriented approach introduced in OPC UA architecture.
