Intellution Inc. provides software, which maps logical names to physical devices in a factory setting. Increasing factory complexity compounds the problem of managing these devices. We propose a distributed middleware solution, the Distributed Object Brokerage, which manages the mappings between logical names and physical devices in a factory. This paper explores the design considerations necessary to implement such a system in an efficient and scalable manner. In addition a prototype was implemented to test the feasibility of the concepts presented.
